New York Ave. - Lake Claire “Yard Sale

Reversing my path and heading back towards home on Dekalb Ave I stop at this sale behind a home near the land trust. A delightful sign that appears to have been drawn by a toddler directs me to the sale. Most of the stuff here looks like it’s been in a basement for a while which is true of a lot of sales near the land trust. A large area is covered with old gallon paint cans, on some blankets and drop cloths are piled a mix of clothing assorted dinnerware and old camera gear with foggy lenses and a yoga mat. In the driveway are boxes of Lps that yield a variety of classical music and 70’s and 80’s rock including Lou Reed, Joy Division and Rick Wakeman.
I buy nothing.
