Callan Cir. - Candler Park “Yard Sale”

This sale was in the yard and driveway of a home facing the tennis courts in Candler Park. Two women watched over a moderate collection of clutter they wished to divest. A box of books included “Finding a Husband after 35”, J. G. Ballard’s “Crash”, Copland’s “Generation X” along with some popular fiction and cook books. Other items gathered there were a onion roaster, a tennis racket, some tiki head party lights, pillows in the shape of gift wrapped presents, a somewhat abstract painting of a man on a grid, lampshades and some bicycle parts. A card table next to the driveway contained a small selection of stuff that may have belongs to a neighbor. On the table was an eight-inch tall plastic replica of a Marshall amp. The seller said it actually worked and you could plug a guitar in it. Also on the table was a collection of manuals for 3D Max.
I bought nothing but noticed that mosquitoes had bitten me while I browsed the sale.
