The Tinman

Recently I had an opportunity to go in person to Daves yard to attend his blowout sale. I had always wanted to visit that yard and was quite impressed with how organized it was. Even tho I could see it was being ransacked. He explained to me why he did the mail order and the problems with dealing with the public at large.  Having been in the service industry for many years I get it.I was very impressed with the man (Tin)and the amount of knowledge and how personable he was. Every now and then you run into one of them cats and he is definitely one of those cats. 

For the three hours I was there I watched a steady stream of variable people come through with their niggly requests. He knew if he had it and he knew where to look for it. He treated them all with respect and was very informative to all who needed it.

For an old curmudgeon he's a pretty great guy.

He is definitely done. It would be a crying shame to see all of this great stuff go to the crusher .It is one heck of a resource for all those fixer-upper type people and there classics.

 From another curmudgeon,

thanks Dave, A pleasure for sure,

It would be cool to see Dave's yard and meet the (Tin)man.
