...Let's not use valuable real estate on the signs with bog 'ol GINORMOUS letters saying...
GARAGE SALE !!
...and then in letters the size someone with 20/20 vision would need a telescope to see...
1103 west state fair road - saturday only from 8 to 1
earlybirds will be shot, stuffed and mounted.
and we have the best stuff that you wouldn't
want to miss at very cheap prices come see us..
lemonade stand and oh yeah donuts for sale
Come on! We know you're having a garage/yard sale - please let us know where to go to find you...we have dollars! And we want to give them to you...to take away your stuff...for you..
.....we're driving down a street, with people in metal boxes with wheels going approximately the speed of light, and we're using our old eyes, squinting, turning the "good eye" toward the sign that has your address.... the size of ant-poop.... taped to a traffic signal.... 25 feet up...at a busy intersection.
Get a clue. In fact, buy one. That is, if anyone can find your sale to give you money to buy a clue...
Next time, make the address the largest part - we probably can figure out it's a sale because of the obnoxious colored signs with time-frames and location of your whereabouts...
OK, well, I did manage to find a couple sales.......but it wasn't easy...
So let me show you what I found this week!
Train case - to be "dolled" up at a later date $1.00
small-ish little pitcher with a star on the bottom! $.50
Great (but sort of worn on the insides) sewing basket with all the "stuff" inside $1.00
A cool old bank bad holding....wooden Scrabble pieces..
(just noticed I typed 'bank bad' instead of "bag" - wonder if it's one of those word association things from when I used to have control (haha) of the check book & didn't ever balance at the end of the month...er...year??)
Another ballerina to keep Betty Grable company...
(kinda looks like Betty is going to grab the ballerina's crown!) - $.50
Cute metal square with mirror $1.00
Two rings, both of good weights - that may even be real.......who knows??
$1.00 each (the 'diamond" one is really sparkly and pretty)
I even picked up an old "church key"...wonder why they called them that??
I don't know but we always had one in the kitchen drawer - so I thought I needed one too!
Hope your Sunday is great - let us know, OK?
