Family Heirlooms & History Up For Grabs
Remnants of a trip to Hawaii, a cardboard box marked "gloves", a lamp with a burgundy shade, his and her lifejackets, and a plaque with the word "babe" on it were all available to new owners at a fair price.
It is easy to feel like a spy, detective and time traveler all rolled into one at yard sales. They not only reveal interesting family history but also show how fashion, entertainment, home décor, humour and cultural trends subtly evolve over time.
The post is linked to SIGNS, SIGNS and GOOD FENCES.
