There is a long list of things I am looking for at garage sales. Based on the sale and the sellers, I will align my list with objects that I think they would possibly have. Of course, I would never be so specific as to ask for a pistol flashlight, but I did ask if they had any pocket knives. After disappearing inside, they returned with a pretty uninteresting knife and this amazing flashlight. I suppose they figured the sort of fellow that would be looking for pocket knives would also have interest in a Saturday night special flashlight. They were right.
Naturally, I bought the pocket knife, too. Just to round out the deal and show my appreciation for emerging with the flashlight.
