I always read about people finding great deals on vintage ukes at garage sales and estate sales and I figured that would never happen to me... Until last night.

I searched "ukulele" on craigslist and a garage sale came up and one of the things they were selling was a ukulele. The garage sale was this past saturday though so I email them asking if they still have it and what kind. They said yes, a harmony baritone that used to be her grandapa's for $30! I go to the house today to get it and it's gone. I could cry :(

On a side note, I got a great deal on a uke on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/Lanikai-Uke-Ukulele-Custom-Series-Concert-LSM-C_W0QQitemZ160344321874QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Defau ltDomain_0?hash=item2555442f52&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12%7C66%3A4%7C39%3A1%7C72%3A1205%7C 240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A200) this morning!

Check Volunteers of America and Goodwill stores. They often have ukes and don't have any idea what they are worth. Usually, they sell cheap.

I'm ecstatic about my $100 Fluke, and $115 KPK (including hard case), as well as my $129.00 Waverly Street pineapple, my $300 Koa Kamaka pineapple, and my custom Koa super soprano R&L pineapple. I have to stop looking or I will find more deals and burn what little I have left of my life savings that is evaporating from medical costs. Life sux but 'ukuleles help cope wit' da pain. :shaka:
