I'm not sure why, but Colorado Springs
is a GREAT place to yard sale.
Mandy, Jeremy, and kids were out this morning
enjoying the beautiful weather and some sales.
Mandy kept seeing things that she
thought I would like and texting me pictures.
Three red bar stools!
I passed since I have a red bar stool that I
am not using right now and probably
don't need 3 more in storage.
A retro ice cream freezer!
I really liked this, but wasn't sure
where I would display it, so again I passed.
She called about some bunk beds for the
grandchildren's room. They
were what I am looking for with
a full size mattress on the bottom and
a twin on the top, but they were metal
and I'm really looking for wood.
Again, I passed.
I have a very smart daughter-in-law
who was determined that she find
something that I was willing to buy.
The picture below was the last I received
from the morning's shopping trip.
The text message said:
"Want one of these?
$100 million each
"I'll take all 3.
It's a bargain at that price.
I would have paid double.
On a side note:
What do you call this kind of sale
in your part of the country?
In Houston, they were Garage Sales;
in CS, they are yard sales;
I have also heard Tag Sales,
Estate Sales (although I think those
are a little more shi-shi.
Are there any more names that I
haven't heard of?
