Time to vote (it's September 1st somewhere).

A wide variety of finds for August. Will be hard to pick the one best so everyone gets 3 votes and in 6 days, we'll see who comes out on top.

Good luck to all nominations.

That's it for the August 2017 Find of the Month and a what a good contest it was! Everyone got significant numbers of votes and the result could have gone any of several different ways. In the end though the winner was oldguy's WE Ivory 354 on Goodwill for $9.00 + $15.23 shipping! Congratulations oldguy.

Everyone should be proud of their finds and their votes this month. Even with three votes I struggled to decide where to put them.

Thanks everyone for playing and keeping it fun.

Yep, 1st win, thanks everyone. I usually get the coveted last place😀😀 or tied for last place. I'm thrilled, there was strong competition. Now I get to restore the phone but after I finish the head gasket project on my car, sometimes reality comes 1st.
