I'm hanging my kayak from the ceiling of my garage, and I bought some cheap pulleys from Harbor Freight to setup a simple block & tackle style rig. It works, but the pulleys are relatively cheap, and they bind easily. I went to West Marine and looked at their pulleys which were significantly nicer, but were also around $25 each.
I'd love a good recommendation for pulleys that won't break the bank. It's hard to tell what brands are good when you're looking online.

Local swap meet or farmer's market. Pulleys run about buck for a cheap piece'o'crap to a double sawbuck for a hundred-year-old iron&oak job in perfect condition. You might have to come back once a week all summer to find the one(s) you want, but that's part of the adventure!
