Post 70: Truth is Stranger than Sparky

The first rule of garage sales is to make everything look nice. Clean the clothes and hang them up. Polish the silverware. Dust the end tables. Make the nicknacks natty. I think that’s why Sparky uses Craigslist, where nothing needs to be in good shape.

Only one missing pendant.

And if you are selling an animal of some sort, be sure to brush and wash the critter.

Chilean Male Llama – $400 (Ruination)

Two and a half year old male llama.

Good with people, perfect for kids

Chile has lots of mountains and the llama is good at going up hill.

Or down hill.

Or on the flat lands.

If the item to be sold has parts, be sure they are all attached. Actually in the place where they belong.

Free chair. Need to get it out of my garage. Just needs to have legs reattached. First come, first serve.

Don’t expect these sales to be stationery.

  1. My parents and I moved to a condo once. We unloaded he truck and started unpacking. The very next morning, we packed everything back up, reloaded the truck, and left. People wonder how I managed to move over 50 times before I graduated from high school.

  2. Ooh, hanging lamps – seventies flashbacks, stained glass hanging lamps and shag carpet. Sparky is at least honest in his description, that lamp is hideous.
