237/365 - Garage Sale

On any given Saturday, starting in April through October (except when the Illini have a home game), throngs of people participate in this activity called the garage sale. The process always proves to be entertaining - the wheeling and dealing, the people encountered, the things they buy (or don't buy).

Today's garage sale was no different - we had beautiful weather (cool, crisp and sunny) and large crowds. We sold the fish aquariums, the hamster cage, the Cozy Coupe and the play kitchen. I gave away the metal patio chairs.

Any given Saturday in summer

One man tried to bargain down one of Erica's jackets from the Gap. Only worn once, it was in perfect condition and I was asking $3. He wanted to pay $1. I said no. He kept on saying "one dollar", and I would reply "three". He got the picture and put it back. It later sold for $3.

As in previous years, Will ran the bake sale, selling cookies, brownies and lemonade. Henry helped out a bit (and Will did pay him for his services):

A busy, yet fun day for all.
