Merrill Dr. – Decatur “Moving Sale”

This sale was in the rear carport of a 1950’s ranch home. On the side of the carport was a large road case the size of a small car from a local audio-visual company. The sellers told me they did not know what it was worth. In the carport I found a pair of paint ball pistols some old management and nuclear physics textbooks, a bible, some men’s clothing, a novelty liquor pump that resembled a vintage gas station pump, some old chrome kitchen appliances, a copy of “How to Live Longer”, a small old laptop, a selection of small signs, more Mardi Gras beads, two aquariums, a box of old cell phones, a gavel and a self described portable ashtray. I pondered what ashtrays are not portable.
I bought nothing, but told them that new road cases can be very expensive.
