"I have talked about heading over to Arcadia to check out the antique shops"
Arcadia has great antiques and on ONE Sat per month they also do a street fair with tables full of goodies. Check and do visit that SAT for lots to see.
We are not "antique" collectors , but do look for great almost new operating gear that we can use. Half the price of "new" with 10x the service life from the more honest construction.
