Carmageddon, Yard-mageddon, bust.
Not only was Carmageddon not the apocalyptic hell everyone expected – the yard sale was a bust also.
If you had anywhere to go this past weekend, chances are you got there 15 — 20 minutes earlier than normal. That’s the power of the media. Carmageddon now tops my three favorite days to drive in Los Angeles (followed closely by A Day without an Illegal Immigrants and Jewish holidays)
The yard sale actually wasn’t a complete bust – I got rid of a few boxes of stuff, left overs were donated to a charity (that will not be named because they charge too much for stuff people don’t want in the first place).
Despite the less than stellar sales (apparently EVERYONE in the valley had a yard sale that weekend) I did spend some quality time hanging out with friends, swapping clothes and getting a little sun (more like wrinkles since I don’t actually tan).
I DID save the best stuff – designer clothes and better housewares for NEXT week’s event – The Barker Hangar Yard Sale. This should be an amazing event as it will feature vintage modern danish furniture pieces from the Barker family. It will also feature the usual garage sale items.
