Garage Sale Report - November 22, 2008

No, I did not get the shoes. Those are on my feet.

People often tell me that they never find anything good at garage sales. The only possible reason is that they are doing it wrong. Or maybe we don't agree on what is good. I think that 3 Dura-ace 9-speed titanium cassettes, a Park bicycle stand, an extremely charming handmade workbench, a 100 year old hand knotted turkish rug and a copy of Richard Scarry's Alphabet Book is pretty good.
Besides, even if I never did get anything good, I would still go to garage sales. I am extremely interested in seeing how people lived, how they live now and what that delta looks like. I am a curious which is another way of saying I am a snoop.
