Iverson Ave. - Candler Park “Yard Sales”

Here I found two sales in neighboring homes. The first sale was in the yard of a craftsman bungalow. A few tables were in the front of the yard offering such items as a empty bottle in a gift box of Camus Cognac, some stem ware and glass bowls, an ice bucket for champagne and a variety of vases. Laid out on tarps on the lawn was a heating pad, a VHS copy of Hotel Terminus, a chess teacher program, a bread maker and some brightly colored tiki mugs. Several boxes of books lined the driveway in them I found “Though as Nails Flowers for the South”, “Yakuza”, ”Aristotle’s Poetics”, “American Jihad”, “When Work Disappears” and “Reaping the Whirlwind”.

Bread maker no longer needed.

Bightly colored tiki tumblers.

The adjoining sale was in the back yard of the house next door. Going down a flag draped alley I found a collection of vintage goods. Placed around the back deck area were commemorative plates, an old catalog for Top Value stamps, a variety of figurines, a fondue set, an American flag, some candlesticks, a mailbox, two tennis rackets and some colored light bulbs. Among some books were “How to Do it, the Lively Art of Entertaining”, ”The Boston Cooking School Cookbook” “The Mammoth Book of Erotica”, “”Emily Post’s Etiquette”, “The Road Less Traveled” And “Love Warps the Mind a Little”.
I bought nothing.
