McClendon Ave. – Lake Claire “Yard Sale”

This was not much a day for sales, perhaps with the holiday on Wednesday people didn’t care put their stuff out in the yard. This sale was a small affair around the corner from my home. Here two women watched over a small selection of stuff gathered along the sidewalk. Among the stuff there was a copy of a book entitled “The stuff we hold secret”, the Top Ten Game, a foot massager, two highly decorated knives, a framed copy of a document entitled “The Prayer for a Married Couple”, an unopened package of paper wedding decor and an empty frame for a graduation picture. In addition to these sparse things they were selling some fresh baked goods.
I bought a very tasty coconut pumpkin muffin.

A prayer no longer needed.

Boulevard Dr. – Reynoldstown “Moving Sale”

Later in the morning I needed to go to Lowe’s so I stopped at this sale in the yard of a bungalow a block from Moreland Ave. While I photographed and perused the clutter the sellers set on the front porch and discussed neighborhood crime. Taped to the front of a table were two large signs explaining the pricing policy. But nothing I saw seemed to have the stars of stickers indicating the prices. Among the stuff found in the yard was a Mac G3, a mug containing some cigars, some kitchen implements and four small paint cans with retro postcard images of Arizona on them. There was also a selection of men and women’s clothing and some books. Among the books were “Who’s Who in Rock and Roll”, “The Joy of Beading”, “Ethiopian Traditional Recipes”, “American Vegetarian Cookbook from the Fit for Life Kitchen” and “Aristotle’s Ethics”.
I bought a pair of pants.

Interestingly enough, I was in the Value Village today on Moreland Avenue and saw the collection of postcard tin can candles in the glass case, awaiting a buyer. Evidently, no one bought them at the yard sale and they made their way throught the flotsam and jetsam and landed in the thrift store.

I took a picture of it; I'd be glad to email it if you like. Just comment me on my site and let me know where to forward it!

On several occassions I have found items from one sale transfered to another sale days or weeks later. So much stufff just refuses to go to the landfill, which is a good thing. Send the photo to
