I have the below goodies for sale. Please contact me by PM with any questions or inquiries. All prices include shipping to the continental US. For the shovels, if you live west of the Mississippi River, there will be a small additional shipping fee to help with the extra amount of postage.
The books are priced to sell! I’ll knock off a few bucks if you buy more than one (books in groups count as “one”). Grab them now for winter reading!
I accept Money Orders or PayPal. If paying by PayPal, please add the amount designated for each item. Don’t worry about it on the less expensive items, but it does help on the more expensive things.
Shovel A - I haven’t seen another shovel quite like this one. Has plates on the edge for driving it into the ground. A really nice small-ish size that would be light to carry. $60 shipping included, PayPal please add $1.50. ON HOLD!
Shovel B - This is a nice sized scoop shovel that would make quick work of digging a hole or moving material. On the rear of the shovel, there is a small cut in the metal for some reason, however, the lower two rivets still fully support the shovel. See the detail photo that shows this. $55 shipping included, PayPal please add $1.50. ON HOLD!
