After a prolonged drought, I finally came upon some nice pieces today. Hadn't really planned on going in the direction of the sale, but was headed down a side street to the main drag and saw the sale sign. Thankful I went that way instead of following my first instinct! Two Mitchell Pattern Shelter halves, pre-war blue denim barracks bag with soldiers name and serial number. 1943 dated US Army raincoat( shown folded for sake of room in picture), 1967 dated Demo Charge bag, and WW2 US Army issue  wool pants. God is good!

Lets just say, I got all of this stuff, 2 pairs of new yard work gloves, 5 old fishing rods and reels, and an oil funnel for less than $16.00... and the beater SSI shown in another post here.
