First stop was in the middle of town. Advertised as a GARAGE SALE, I was rather bummed when I pulled up to an old house on a corner lot which had been split into apts... NO 'Garage'!! There was a sign by the road, and I saw some people walking down the sidewalk with arms full of 'treasures'. I thought maybe around back was a small lawn... I cautiously made my way to the back - no lawn. no garage. Just an open porch door. I tentatively peaked my head in the door, and found a middle-aged (rather 'frumpy' looking housewife) arranging stuff in the kitchen. She was very welcoming- told me "Come in! Everything inside is for sale!". As I entered, I was hit by the strong aroma of candles - NOT a bad thing - could have been much worse! I was the only customer there, so we chit-chatted. The merchandise in the small kitchen consisted mostly of numerous new crockpots, numerous new blenders/food processors, and Candles! I picked up a set of those 'cheezy' Moon/Sun resin-mirror-wall hangings. When I find them on the cheap, I grab them, take them home to meet with a coating of spray paint, then hang them amidst the trunk of our Mulberry tree on the edge of the herb bed (see 9-2-09 post for a glimpse!).
Then I wandered into the next small room. Books, CD's, bookcases and some 'due for the curb' overstuffed furniture. I browsed through the books. I was intrigued when I came across a book on 'WitchCraft', but soon I realize that about half of the books were of this nature. As I perused further, some cookbooks, some 'Chicken soup for the soul'..., a title on a hardcover grabbed my eye - 'LapDance'. Completely expecting it just to be an 'eye-catching' title, I was a caught off guard when I opened it to find that was REALLY what it was about - complete with Graphic Photos and minimal text! Hmmm.... I don't consider myself a prude by any means, BUT! Would you really put something like that out at your Garage Sale???!
Next room. PACKED floor to ceiling with 1960's - current Playboys! Okay. Enough. I gathered my moon/sun and a small stack of the WitchCraft books and paid the Nice Lady.
**Just as a side-note in explanation of the books... As I have stated before, I am not of any specific belief/religion, though I find that an educated knowledge of them ALL is good 'background information'. I will browse the books, and eventually 'release' them to Ebay (some look to be fairly profitable!!).**The next two stops were on The Bizarre side too, so I called it a day! When I got to work, I glanced at my calendar and realized it was a FULL MOON - I think that explains a Lot!!
