With that in mind, I went out last Friday to the only sales that were advertised -- a garage sale and two 'proceeds for charity' sales. It rained the whole day with a chilly, almost freezing rain. The pickins' were slim at the sales, too. At one of the charity sales (which was supposed to be a 'donate whatever you want to for your items' sale), the cash-lady tried to get me to pay a ridiculous price for the only thing I bought. When her friend looked at her and said 'Are you kidding? That should be only $4 at the most', cash-lady gave ME the stink-eye because I paid only $4 for it! I think she thought I should have insisted on paying $20... If she hadn't tried to railroad me, I probably would have donated more anyway.
At any rate, I got a few things.

|A couple of cameras and some books|
|Didn't everyone have a set of these insulated cups back in the day?|
That's it for the soggy Friday sales -- I guess even a little bit is better than nothing! There are only 2 listed for this week, too. I hope this doesn't mark the beginning of a yard sale drought...
