You know it's May in Maine- lots of the garage sale signs have reappeared along roadsides on the weekends. The idiom 'one man's trash is another's treasure' holds true here and is certainly the lifeblood of these institutions. Usually, every other summer or so, we have a sale to unload accumulating junk and other stuff that's overwhelming the garage and attic, and yes, we often stop by sales, especially the big ones that look interesting from the road. This one above wasn't worth the stop, unless you were looking for Teenage Ninja Turtles, Spiderman replicas, mix-matched Happy Meal toys, faded plastic flowers and lots of clothes. I have a theory, interesting houses often equal great stuff on lawns at sales. This house grabbed my attention, but my hypothesis failed me miserably. Oh well, if you are going out searching this weekend; Happy Hunting!
