garage sale.

Standard
loved visiting the grandies
and their friends from the neighborhood
at their very own garage sale for kids.
they made signs
waved to cars
 took turns being the dj in the garage
keeping the music going
and offering specials
(like the ‘wear two things on your head and get one free discount’)
every few minutes.
reminds me of me when i was a kid
though I usually ended up spending my profits
buying my friends’ stuff
and they often did the same with mine.
sometimes I even ended up
with more stuff than I had started with.
 a pretty fun time for all
and some things are timeless.
I remember going with my mom
to a random garage sale as a kid and thinking
what a cool treasure hunt that the whole world was.
only to transition as an adult to think,
‘what a gross place that really is.’

  1. I was going to have a garage sale last time I moved house 2 years ago, but I too much stuff, to sort out, so I ended giving it all to the MS Charity shop.

  2. We have all these neighborhood flea markets around this time of year with music, food, and great stuff to browse through. Many of us in Stockholm don’t have garages, so we have to do that instead. But it’s always nice with a good garage sale! 🙂
