    Try Goodwill and Salvation Army if they have them in your area. We have several Goodwill stores all within 20 miles of my home, one Salvation Army, a Women's Center thrift shop, and 4 or so Humane Society thrift shops.

    But in the spirit of cooperation ...

    A usable camera bag, with a Contax 167MT body and a bunch of usable filters and other accessories inside.

    Many of the filters are B & W and of sizes I can use.

    And the Contax body?

    I gave it to another APUG member who creates magic with her Contax stuff, but who was struggling with some repair issues on her other Contax body.

    Not bad for $14.00.

    I tried searching through a few boards, and even used the search feature, but I didn't see anything. Oh well.

    Over here there are only few thrift stores, but more goodwill shops. Often something inbetween: people in need of a home financing their hostel.

    Typically the offer of cameras is very limited and prices are higher than on my favourite flea-markets. So I only pay them a visit when I pass them anyway, or when there is a once-years photo stuff offer where they put a lot of stuff on sale.

    I guess my best deal at such a shop was a Osram Dunco 10 ligh,t originally packed, for a few euros.

    I once found a whole box of JOBO tanks and reels and bottles at Goodwill. Paid $5 for the box. Sold most everything on the net for $150. Still have some reels that I cannot figure out what tank they go to, to big for the 1500 series, too small for the 2400 series.

    I got many cameras from the Thrift Store but my best find was a Nikon F with a 24mm lens for $14.99. I posted this link at the time:

    I found an original Leica 0 (1923) in rather good condition and a very old Nikon rangefinder M (1950) in an old wooden box in the back of a second hand store. They asked only $10 for it since the couldn't guarantee it would still function.

    I find Rokkor lenses at thrift stores around here every once in a while. Found a 45/2 and a 50/1.7 just recently. Gave them to my girlfriend that uses an X-370.
