Edgewood Ave. – Inman Park “Yard Sale”
Two women watched over a picked thought pile of clutter outside the entrance of this three-story 1920 era apartment building. One of the women responding to a remark about some Lps she was selling was saying “ I really like the Allman Brothers but I don’t have way to listen to them”. Stuff on sale there included s a number of picture frames, a large framed poster of Ani Difranco, a plush monkey, a BBQ grill, a door mat with images of flamingoes on it and a large mounted poster of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.
I bought nothing.

Austin Ave. Inman Park “Moving Sale”
This sale was on the front porch and in a few rooms of a fully restored Queen Anne Victorian. Most of the few things they were selling were gone by the time arrived but I did get a chance to wander around the house. Some books and games were being sold on the porch as well as a framed completed jigsaw puzzle and a painting of a teddy bear. Inside some glassware, a phone machine and some other household stuff was for sale. I went up stairs to what had been a child’s bedroom. There a gigantic loft bed had been built into the room. Next to it was a hand made toy chest in the shape of some animal.
I bought nothing.
