McLendon Ave. – Candler Park “Yard Sale”

I arrived here shortly after nine and the sellers were still in the process of setting up. Something that is even more difficult on a cold morning such as this. In the front yard of this frame bungalow among a sea of fallen leaves I found a walker, some old darkroom accessories, lamps, vases, fireplace tools, a back massage device, a box full of decks of playing cards, two carvings resembling oversized chess pieces and some board games. On one table were two elongated figures of the Virgin, a set of mugs with Teddy bears on them and a hand painted welcome sign. Among the board games were “Win Lose or Draw”, ”Upwords” and “Relativity”. In a box of books were the titles “Hints from Heloise”, “The Women’s Day Book of House Plants”, “Inspiring Messages for Daily Living”, “Lets Cook Microwave”, “Crossing the Threshold of Hope”, “Adobe Photoshop 5.5 Classroom in a book”, “The Little Red Book of Adobe Live Motion”, “Where Miracles Happen”, “Stick A geranium in your hat and be happy”, “Surviving Manic Depression”, “Faith is the Answer” and “Mind Over Back Pain”. With the books was a VHS labeled “Dancin’ Grannies”. In another box I found some Xmas décor and a framed hand drawn portrait of a Christ-like figure. It was signed by Mo.
I bought nothing.
