    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.

    Picked up a box full of Minolta SLR's and lenses, also a set of Canon AE1 and A1 outfits.

    I'm beginning to find, after two months of hitting yard sales, that most people have the same stuff. I'd say the most common find is a Minolta SLR of some kind with a huge Vivitar 70-200mm-ish zoom on it and a 50mm. Second most common is the Canon duo, with some similar lens as well.

    I have yet to see a Nikon, Pentax, or Olympus SLR of any sort at a yard sale, although I've managed to pick some up from craigslist. One of these days...

    Around my neck of the woods, I seem to find Canon, Yashica and Sears/Ricoh K mount slrs and lenses, and a lot of Canon and Nikon compacts. I did find a nice Fujica AZ-1 once, and a Praktica PLC3. The only rangefinder that I have ever found at a garage sale was a Canon A35F.
