3rd Ave.- Oakhurst “Yard Sale”


While riding my bike today I was determined to find at least one sale not far from my home. I found it only a few miles away in front of a small home in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Decatur. When I pulled up the seller was talking about a yard sale aficionado and restaurant critic whom I know. They were more critical of her food critiques than her yard saling techniques. In the driveway and yard of this home I found a set oversized wrenches for German auto repair, a bolster cushion with a built-in reading lamp, a ceramic cat, new containers of some sort of cellulite cream, some small cushions of undetermined use, several pieces of colorful jewelry, a pack of playing cards and two ten dollar gift certificates to local restaurants priced at five dollars.
Among some books piled in a plastic laundry bin were “Hannibal Rising”, “Wedding Vows and Traditions”, “How to Rock Climb”, “The Antibride Wedding Planner”, “The Penguin Book of Vampire Stories”, Good Works”, How I Turned $1,000 into Five Million in Real Estate” and “The Kama Sutra”. I also found some luggage, a few candles and a large still life painting.
I bought nothing.

Still life found in Oakhurst.

















Playing cards and gift certificates.



















Cushion is built-in lamp.
