The wife is having a yard sale this weekend, I decided to sell some user traps. So far she has spent the better parts of 4 days getting her stuff together and displaying it, it took me about 3 minutes to display my traps.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

can you save me a few (MinktoberFest)?

I'd like to buy a few of your traps (would want the tags on 'em).

So, I've thought about that for years. Buying traps from some well known trappers, WITH a tag on them. I would love to have gotten one of Johnny Thorpes traps. I took lessons from him and should have paid him way to much for a trap with a tag. Anybody have a collection like that? I'd love to have one of Slims traps, and Pauls and some others.

No collection by any means but Patrice and I have a Blake and Lamb No.44 double long spring with Paul's and his Father's tags on it.
Picked it up at a real good price at a Minnesota shindig a few years back.

I have a couple traps with Leo Hoeft's tags on them. I also have 2 axes that Leo used on his line. No tags of course but they have the initials "L.H." on them.

Not really a collector, mostly an accumulator.

I should have bid against you some more. Many well known trappers have donated traps with tags on them for various fundraisers in the past. I used to have several but got rid of all of them a while back.


I have nothing clever to put here.

My wife had one last weekend. How I hate them ! She promised, in front of witnesses, to never have another one.

No paper being sold at the yard sale. The traps I am selling were not my own personal user traps, they were some odds and ends from days gone by. 7 Blake and Lamb number 1 long springs, 1 Blake and Lamb number 1 1/2 long spring, 4 110 body grips, 2 vintage Blake and Lamb jump traps and 6 1 1/2 Victor coil springs.

Starts tomorrow. I predict my traps will sell better than the merchandise my wife and daughter put on the tables. They took up all the good space, lol, I will still out sell them. Traps rock, clothing does not.

One time my friends wife had a sale in their barn. I had a couple tables of antiques and tools, she had a ton of kids clothes and toys. They walked right past my tables to get to hers. I made 40.00, she did 400.00.

Heck. we should have pooled our money and went to Costa Rica fishing for a month or so.
Finally got the loan paid off on that one.

Yeah, I heard baby and kid clothes sell well, my wife and daughter are selling adult clothing. In the past that did not sell very well. She went to an Amish store this evening and purchased a bunch of whoopee pies, maybe they will sell, lol.

Jim, I believe you have a mink trapping book authored by a gentleman from my hometown in MN. If you ever want to sell it I'm just the man to buy it.

I completely agree with you on traps rocking, but it will depend on who is attending. If I see a garage sale with all baby and women's clothing, I will turn around and walk out but my girlfriend will hang around and handle and inspect every article of women's clothes. If we see a sale with a lot of guy's stuff, I will linger and inspect every article while she bolts back to the car very quickly.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!
