What to do with old stuff around the farm

I am in the process of cleaning up an old barn in preparation to put a shop up. I have about 100,000 tobacco sticks, an old sprayer and a single row planter for tobacco. I have kicked around the thought of putting the tobacco sticks on ebay and selling them as "historic, folkloric" tobacco sticks. Sell them for $1/each + plus shipping. They would make excellent tomato stakes. Anyone have any ideas on what to do with some of this stuff?

Ebay, Craigslist.

Anything will sell on ebay, probably even used condoms!

You could sell the stakes in singles and lots of 10, 20, etc. If you have any old iron implements, people are buying those as lawn ornaments.

You could haul it to a swap meet or something like that.

I just read that a lot of people are starting to grow their own tobacco. A company that sells tobacco seeds says their sales are up something like 400% (don't quote me on that). Anyway, I think if you sell these with some instructions on how to use them then they would sell well on Ebay.
