    I like Dessert Industries... The Mormon Church runs a series of 17 stores that cover all of North America. It's like a Goodwill except that they have really cool stuff that was owned largely by members of the church...not so many garage and attic clean- outs as Goodwill, but stuff owned by church members. My Best Buys there have been two small point and shoot cameras. A Canon PowerShot G3 for $7.50 and a Nikon 12 megapixel pocket camera for the same price.

    The best thrift store find I have (that's camera-related) was a 500/8 Nikkor mirror lens for $80. Used it until I got the 200-500 and ended up selling it for $400.

    Found a Lowepro Nature Trekker AW ii backpack today. Looks new. 39.99. Green tags were 25% off. 32.xx out the door. Not a smoking deal, but better than new. (179.00) Still going for around 50.00 used on Ebay. Big pack and lots of room.

    Not bad.

    I use a Lowepro CompuDayPack, been out of production for many years. I can put the tripod inside so to not overly attract attention to myself as I'm carrying my equipment. I would like to find another one, wife misses it as her laptop bag. :allteeth:
