This morning there are very few signs for sales near my home but I set off on bike to see what I can discover if I found nothing at least I would have a pleasant bike ride.
Whiteford Ave. - Edgewood "Yard Sale"
I was expecting this sale on Whiteford to be a little larger from the ad placed in Craigslist. Here I found a somewhat bored looking fellow looking over his goods in the yard of his small frame home. Among the stuff here were old comics and graphic novels, a drum with some obscene language spray painted on it, one of those ugly Xmas nutcrackers, some electric music peripherals, wicker baskets and a collection of small ceramic horses.
Among some books were “Jane Eyre”, “Ya Yas in Bloom”, ”Broca’s Brain”, “Chaos” “Georgiana” and “The Promise of Wisdom”.
An assortment of stuff could be seen in plastic bins one held a copy of the Bad Girl’s calendar and some plastic leis; another held plush toys and a box of hair dye.
I bought nothing.
Hair dye and plush animals for 25 cents.
Drum with foul language and graphic novels.
Waverly Way – Inman Park “Yard Sale”
I came across this sale while cruising on my bike through the tree-lined streets of Inman Park. Here a young man and woman casually watched over an assortment of things upon the grass and on tables. Like the prior sale in Edgewood I found more musical apparatus. Here was a four-track recorder and a metronome two devices from different bygone eras near each other on a table. On another table were a lava lamp, a fan, an ashtray and an electric toothbrush. On a rack of women’s clothes I found a cheerleaders outfit from Decatur High School. On a third table were some small plastic horses, novelty buttons and a massive bolt nearly a foot long.
I bought nothing.
Old and not so old musical devices found together.
