It’s garage sale season! ¬†At 7:30 am we loaded the van, taking our morning coffees with us in their original china mugs (do other family’s do this?) and sans the back seats for our many anticipated finds. The social aspect is one of the most interesting by-products of garage-saleing. House owners invite strangers into their yards and garages to sift through their lives while making small talk. As we hunt, we slowly learn about the family members, “Looks like junior outgrew is dinosaur phase”, and “Another failed attempt at Tae-Bo,” judging by the parents who lack the biceps of Mr. Billy Blanks. By far, my favourite garage sales are the ones with children running lemonade stands and bake sales (an important lesson in entrepreneurship and hospitality). And of course, the very intelligent parents who put out coffee for the buyers so they won’t low-ball- good thing I brought my mug!


Along with a serge protector bar (thanks for the find Wes) I grabbed these awesome motorcycle boots for $4 (talked the owner down from $5 haha). Best part? They are oil AND acid resistant- PHEW!
