Several large sheds of mainly military surplus: electronics and optical items, mechnical engineering and furniture (boring stuff!). Electronics section is strong on military radio, test gear and weird lenses. Not as good as it used to be but perhaps the quality merchandise is hearder to find. Good items sell very fast here. Some bargains but not many.

(From Tallahassee Astronomical Society)

An absolute treasure trove for the ATM! Military surplus optics (lenses, eyepieces, prisms, beam-splitters, etc), many unused, at ridiculously low prices. Must visit.

4. Sussex

(From Gerald Evans)

There is a nice mail order shop which has lots of electronic bits:

Bull Electrical
250 Portland Road
Hove, Sussex

Tel: 01273 203500
Fax: 01273 323077

They also have a shop at this address (opposite the Gala bingo hall), but I have not been there personally. Sells some 'decent' components (ask for their main catalogue), but has a regular newsletter (ask to be put on their mailing list) of surpulus stuff, including vaguely illegal stuff like video senders, radar blockers, air rifles etc, together with other interesting bits (most of which are of the "10-million of them for a pound" variety), like lasers, geiger counters, steam models, old "innovations" items.
