I was there about 2 hours and I picked up a large and medium paqlite, a sun oven and a handful of stuff to research later on. As I had hoped the sun oven was a nice show special and that was worth the drive itself. The paqlites were really neat and I will use them later this month on my camping trip (once I trim up the pokey edges of the plastic). I also found a company selling silver coins and they had a real nice looking one with the USS Constitution (old ironsides) on it. I didn't buy it as a hedge against inflation, as a barter tool, or to cook up in a lab for medicinal purposes. I got it since the salesperson was very friendly and I just liked the way it looked. I figure I spend money on crap all the time so it was kind of a treat to just buy something 'because'.
I'm not into $200 grab and go buckets, I make my own. I did find some different vendors for stuff that will save me some money in case I run into another shiny metal object. Your opinions and mileage may vary on the links above but I wanted to make it easy in case anyone wanted to check the stuff out.

Time to watch some College football then eat about 4 pounds of salmon and rice. Gluttony!
