Hillpine Dr. - Morningside “Neighborhood Sale”

I have a love/hate relationship with neighborhood sales. While they provide far more sales per acre, most of the individual sales seem to be causal events. At these sales it’s not that important that things are sold or gotten rid of. This one in Morningside was of that ilk but it did provide a look into this community. What I found is that there are a lot of kids here and the kids have a lot of toys, the residents wear uninteresting clothing and the interior décor items is not interesting unless the new stuff they bought is different. But everyone on this street was very nice from the woman who taught photography to middle school kids to the old woman who was especially proud of her 1968 Atlanta city directory (but not proud enough to keep from trying to sell it). The two most notable things I encountered on these streets were a pair of candles shaped like pinecones and a child’s gladiator costume.
I bought nothing.
