Epic Win @ yardsale!!
    #568871 - 07/01/11 04:46 PM (5 years, 5 months ago)

Man, we came up with the epic yardsale score of the century!

We were at a yardsale down the street earlier today. I love yardsales, and haven't had a chance to go to one in FOREVER!!! I begged my girl to let us stop, and she said "okay. $20 spending limit, period".

I found two old cast iron pans, one for $5 and one for $10... then my girl found a candle for $2. So we have 3 bucks left to spend. I start looking for something a bit cheaper than the $25 skill saw I really wanted...


I first noticed a small bag of hydroton in the back of their yard. Then I noticed it was sitting inside a reflective hood... next to it was a 95w CFL, and I was already walking over. Next I realize that sitting behind it was a 1'x3' floodtable on a stand with rockwool, a pump, timer and some misc. nutes sitting inside... my girl walks over and she's like "oooh, growing equipment! But we don't. Have enough for all this, baby..." I ask the lady if she wanted to sell it all as a lot, or if she'd be ok piecing it out. I figured I MIGHT be able fo get the bulb for only a couple bucks... But when she said "Oh, we were just wanting $20 for it", I didn't hesitate to say "we'll take it all!" And threw it in the car before they changed their mind...

$200 worth of hydro crap, for $20!!! Epic fucking win! I'm tossing the rockwool because its old and dusty, but the rest of it will go well with our other stuff.... man, I LOVE yardsales!!!

Nice I would have had to pull the trigger on that too. You should sell it.

I'm trying to figure out if I can flower, honestly... combine the CFL with my 4 bulb T-8 to veg the mothers and switch the 1k to HPS. Between the aero setup I made and the flood table I just got, we could have 25 plants in flower here shortly...

:awehigh:

Throw some pictures up whenever or ifever you get to it, I want to see this...A candle for 2 dollars or a complete grow setup for 20 dollars, they clearly didn't realize what it was...Or maybe they did they just don't care.

Here's the flood table:


Here's the light and hood:


They knew what it was, just not what it was worth. It was given to them as a gift. they just never used it and wanted it gone... lol.

There's a wooden stand that came with it that you can't see in the pics...
