D+R Garage Sale Report - March 8, 2008



Even if I had seen a perfect Tempest arcade game for $1, or a flathead signed by the ghost of Vic Edelbrock Sr., I would have had to pass them up as we were filled to the brim with bicycles. Derelict parts bikes, carbon fiber race bikes, and everything in between, are all destined for Coco's long row of bikes. An embarrassment of riches, to be sure.

With a haul like that, the only other items I was able to purchase were those I could keep on my person. By the end of the day I had become a parody of myself, draped in the crocheted throw like a shawl, with pockets jammed full of disposable Swiss watches, boot oil and eyecups.
