We have an online garage sale site for my area and surrounding areas. I found a lady who was selling her grandmother's knitting stuff for $10. I got well over 100 needles, darn near every size, and several sets of each. There were straight needles, dpns, cable needles, crochet hooks and some other things I still haven't figured out yet
. She also included 6 or 7 vintage knitting and sewing books. I found these items when I decided to start knitting, so I didn't have to buy anything except yarn. As I have now become more comfortable with circulars and prefer them over straight, I am considering passing these on to someone else who will appreciate them.
