Fayetteville Rd. – Oakhurst “Moving Sale”
I went out with Cindy in mid morning to check out a Friday sale for the first time this summer. The sale was marked by a large sign made out of moving boxes as well as a crumpled sheet of cardboard that hung over the for sale sign of this frame cottage. The sale was in the back yard. Here we found a moderate amount of jumbled goods. Among them were some items that the seller had made herself. These included a series of mirrors with brightly painted frames and some notebooks with covers made from old Lp sleeves. Piled on tables and on the grass here were manikin parts, several old dial telephones, a ceramic ET figurine, a plaster skull face and several religious prints. On one table was a pair of praying hands next to a Slayer CD. In a cardboard box were about a dozen old thermos bottles. In a box of books I found “Black Coffee Blues”, “War and Peace”, “Start Your Own Business”, “Holy Bible”, “Master Photography”, ”A Feast of Snakes” and “Dr. Spock’s Baby and Childcare”.
I bought nothing but Cindy later went back and bought one of the mirrors and an old dress form. The dress form was still damp from last night’s rainstorm.
Creative sign design.
Selection of antiquated communication devices.
Praying hands and heavy metal.
