    Two more pairs of cufflinks, they are ginormous. And actually found the matching spark pluc tie clip to the spark plug links I picked up a couple weeks ago. Same brand on the plug too. 60 miles away from where I picked up the links.

    +1 that looks pinnable and fully articulating. I need one of those.
    Is that Mrs. Spoo?

    that unit was made in Norway by a company called Bruksbo.
    Cado units are very impressive i just dont like the fact that you have to drill like 30 holes in your wall to install them,this one is free standing and took me literally 10 minutes to put together.
    here it is in all its glory (not my pic)

    grendel,you asked for some tips.
    actually to be perfectly honest there are none,besides living in a big city with lots of thrifts and going to most of them full time.
    dont forget this is my job,its basically just dumb luck...well to find it,once its there you obviously have to recognize what you have.
    but the finding part is just simple math,to put it in perspective since june 1 i have done 5700 KM on my volvo.
    i basically get an oil change once a month from all the mileage i do looking for this stuff.
    its not even location within the city or timing,just basically pure chance by way of volume.

    Wow.....

    Mind blowing finds as always! What model are those B&O speakers? Identical ones (Beovox S50) came with my Beocenter 7000 system and stand that I picked up several weeks back.
