    I haven't had any luck with Goodwill, or the SA shops.
    And their items are never priced quite right. I always
    find great things at the Church, or Synagogue basement thrift shops.

    Too bad Scientology people, or Rastafarians don't have a thrift shop !

    I've seen a few decent things at Goodwill - e.g. darkroom trays in the kitchen plastic ware section .

    Nothing at Salvation Army stores though

    It wasn't from a garage sale, but I managed to find a Nikon to Konica AR adapter at a camera shop for $25.

    I have hit a fet salvation armys and good wills in NYC,there is nothing at all ever related to cameras, and if there was it would be a ridiculously priced compact snap shooter at the $20 range. I think the demand in ny is to much.

    I know that Goodwills are increasingly leveraging the Internet to fetch higher prices for their more desirable items by putting them up on ShopGoodwill and eBay. Maybe other charity/thrift outlets are doing the same.
    The best finds I've found have been in antique stores, and even those have been modest.

    I know this is just happening now. I used to see cameras somewhat often at my local Goodwill. Now they only have point and shoots.

    So far I've had most of my luck at plain old garage sales and craigslist. These days craigslist prices are approaching ebay prices, but who pays asking price My local SA just remodeled their store and they now have a camera section inside of a display case. Last I checked it was full of junk, but you never know!

    I make it a point to raid the antique mall in Mt. Dora if I'm in the area. there is a vendor who buys and sells film gear. I got my last find, a pre-AI 55mm f3.5 Micro Nikkor for 40 bucks from him. He always has reasonable prices on film gear and lenses.
