    In searching for a nice watch deal on eBay, I did notice some similar watches from that area of the world. How well do you rate some of the Soviet Watches? I know nothing about them and stayed away from getting any of them, due to lack of knowledge.

    I've had Vostok watches before -- they're actually quite good for the money though for some reason they all seem to run five minutes fast. They're as solid as a T-34 tank.

    Some more books from eBay

    Sherman: A History of the American Medium Tank by R.P. Hunnicutt (1978)
    I'd been looking for this book for years -- it's usually in the $300 price range
    Loaded with drawings and photos, many of them from the original army manuals.

    Instruction Manual, Power Plant: B-24D Airplane by Consolidated Aircraft Corp. (1943)
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/200644225058...84.m1439.l2649

    Edit: I added the links to my original post

    Edit: 24 September: My watch arrived today!

I looked but didn't see one.

    Anyway.... here's what I bought recently:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI...ht_2113wt_1398 (great store for sunglasses and I found them thanks to the Fedora Lounge!)

    If anyone finds a great deal or buys something, I'd love to see it

    Edited to add:
    *Please add the links too, so people can find the sellers in case they have other great finds and as Marc said "it also saves winners the time and effort of uploading pictures onto photo-hosting websites, then posting links over here to those hosted pictures."
    Totally cool sunglasses, love them.
    Vintage is always in style

    I found this sink and it would be perfect in my house....

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...#ht_500wt_1413

    The only problem is they won't ship it out here and it's in Sycamore, IL

    Waiting to hear the measurements and see who I can get to pick it up and ship it to me

    I think Tom might be going on a roadtrip soon.

    Sycamore is about 30 miles southeast of Rockford
    and more or less a straight shot down I-39 from Pardeeville
