    Default Today's great find


    I had to stop by Viejas Outlet Mall on our way to town. As we pulled
    into the parking lot we saw the signs stating they were having San
    Diego's largest Garage Sale. Well, it wasn't all _that_large but it
    sure had a lot going on. I am keeping an eye out for some coffee mugs
    so I went and gave it a quick look.

    I didn't find any coffee mugs but I did find these Lodge brand cast
    iron fajita skillets that I couldn't pass up. They were at the booth
    the Hard Rock Cafe had set up. Man, they had all kinds of neat new and
    used restaurant equipment, and all proceeds went to charity.

    On the table they had some stacks of the skillets for $4.00 each.
    There was one unopened box on the table that had 6 skillets in it.
    I could have the box of 6 for $20.00.
    The skillets and the thermal slide on hot pads cost me a total of
    $23.00 Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!
    They are pre seasoned and weigh 3lbs each.

    First time, I read that as thirty-one pounds. I was going to ask for
    photos of your biceps after you'd used these for a year.

    If you really want more Cast iron the best sources in order of success are:

    Estate Sales
    Garage sales
    Good Will Stores.

    Yep I keep my eyes open and ride by a few good estate/garage sales
    from time to time whilst on my bicycle. GW and SA are my stores of
    choice, most of the time. Another good option are "ReStores" sponsored
    by Habitat for Humanity (check the website for locations). "Farm and
    Fleet" is another good store with very good prices too, as is "Big R"
    (farm and ranch supply stores). Thanks <G>.

    Sky, who can rarely pass a good bargain

    Happy to help last year I gave 8 duplicates I had to my daughters.

    Most of the time I use a Griswold 8 that rarely gets put away.
