Some of you have been asking what exactly a "Framebuilders' Garage Sale" is. I'll quote Sean Walling from the recent Soulcraft newsletter:

"
All the Bay Area builders will be there selling all the stuff they got for free from the big companies, which is usually pretty nice stuff and goes cheaply (since we got it for free to begin with)."

That's pretty true. Here at the shop, we have 35 years' worth of stuff (mostly really decent stuff, too- only some junk) that sits in a corner, hangs in a storage space, or lives in a dark corner upstairs, and it just collects dust and cat hair. Bruce has already started pricing these neglected treasures, so you can be sure there'll be lots and lots of
"cool old stuff that you can paw through and make really insultingly low offers on" (quoted from Paul Sadoff).
