Poets Corner – Ormewood Park “Street Sale”

Poets Corner is a cul de sac of new infill home built around the corner from the Burns Cottage in Ormewood park. The Burns Cottage is one of Atlanta’s anomaly attractions; built many years ago by the Hibernian society it is an exact replica of Robert Burns’s birth home. Like Elvis’ birth home in Tupelo there is not a lot to it. But this was the first time I had been to this new development in my old neighborhood and was amazed at how child friendly it appeared, as the center of the cul de sac appeared to be were the Ormewood tots leave their large plastic toys. Overall the selection of small sales in close proximity to one another was not very interesting. Furthering my premise that infill housing does not result in good yard sales. There was a lot of kids stuff, slightly outdated computer gear and a lot of pullover shirts.

I bought a shirt but it was not a pullover.
