Oakdale Ave. - Candler Park “Yard Sale”

This sale was held in the driveway of a friend who is in Cindy’s poker group. She is another yard sale addict but she actually buys and accumulates the stuff she finds at sales. At this event she was culling her clutter and putting a good bit out for sale. Nearly all of what was here was decorative and non-utilitarian. Unless one considers candles utilitarian. Even the clothing such as the French maids outfit hanging from a tree or the tee shirt that said “No Money, No Honey” fit this standard. Some objects were cryptic in nature such as a box of quartz crystals or another box of melted candles. Larger items of furniture appeared as if they had always been distressed. Through all this wandered the seller’s cat. Other stuff gathered about included a tapestry with the words “The Queen of Everything”, ceramic masks, several things in glass bubbles, a pair of garish porcelain chickens and a large plush bear. Among some books I found “Power Vs Force”, “The Labyrinth of Solitude”, “Fruits of the Moon Tree”, “The Adventure of Self Discovery”, “Mans Search for Meaning” and “The Politics of Experience”. I bought nothing but Cindy came home with some clothing.
