Garage Sales/Flea Markets/Craigslist are great places to find used tools and plants, especially estate sales where an older couple used to live. Also check your local FreeCycle, especially if you enjoy bulbs/rhizomes. You won't know their exact name, but a rose by any other name is still pretty.

Some favorite tools have come to my home in this manner. A sharp narrow bladed shovel, a turning fork, a kneeling/sitting bench and a garden wagon are a few that come to mind. The price was right and I find them to be valuable treasures.

Bad thing is... too much other stuff keeps following me home. lol

My best finds were a wood/metal baker's rack, which I use for a potting bench & storage of small pots, a 2-wheel pot mover for big heavy containers and a 6 foot trellis.
Great tip! Smiling
