found a rather interesting place to pick over the weekend.
Goodwill outlets. We have three around indy. It's pretty crazy. They have a large warehouse that hold these large bins on wheels. About the size of a dining room table. Every two hours they pull all of the bins and bring out new ones. They do this every day of the week. It's all stuff that didn't sell at the regular Goodwill stores within 6 weeks of being placed. It can get pretty crazy as there are people rummaging through the bins once they set them in place. I didn't see any arguments or anything but people can get aggressive. It's completely hit or miss. I went over the weekend a few times and picked up some decent stuff. Old fisher price toys, a sega genesis, an old fishing tackle box and other odds and ends. They sell the stuff by the pound and at the one I was at the main stuff went for 59¢ per pound and glass was 29¢ I think.
I also saw a lot of decent stuff that other people had in their carts. It just depends where you pick to start and what's in the bin. Take gloves. lol

I had 3 of these, the two smaller ones sold for $60 and $75 (size matters, like I said). This is the biggest of the three:
Here's a second picture to show the texture. You'll notice it's a shadowbox setup:
It's an old Native art form practiced byt tribes in Northern Canada and the prairies. They take a bunch of moosehair, tie it through whatever they were decorating (usually clothing) leaving the longer ends on the outside and then sculpt the tuft with scissors. It's an all but dead art form that's starting to make a comeback. There aren't many collectors, but some of them have deeeeeeeeeeeep pockets when they see what they want (according to research, anyway) so you just have to find the right buyer. This one is on eBay at $450obo and it's getting decent traffic.

interesting. I doubt I'll run across any of this medium in my area, but always good to learn about a new item to watch out for.
What did you pay for these?

I go visit my brother in Alaska a lot. I'll have to look for this art form popping up out there when I go to galleries and such.
