Ponce De Leon Manor – Druid Hills “Neighborhood Sale”

I have a love hate relationship with neighborhood sales. On one hand you have a lot of sales within walking distance, but flipside is that most of the sales themselves are not very interesting. I noted before that a lot of people who have sales really don’t need to have a sale and don’t have much to put out on the street.
Ponce manor is along dead end street that appears to be a late afterthought to the development of Druid Hills. Most of the homes here are deluxe ranch homes and new infill McMansions. Overall it’s very bourgeois. Today there were about seven sales on the street only one of them much more than a single table full of clutter. The one larger sale feature a large selection of office supplies from the CDC. Among the stuff were three ring binders that carried labels like SARS and hepatitis. There were also books on virus mixed in with small plush animals and mug with peace symbols. The other sales featured the usual clutter like Halloween décor, pet bowls, and Xmas items. I found few odd items like a lava lamp, a hand painted bureau topped with several plush bears, a pair of ice skates and a painting of playful whales. Some books found there included “Finders Keepers”, “Loitering with Intent” and “Belva Plain”.
I bought nothing.
Bags from CDC conferences.
