What a Weekend!

Thus far, I've touched on the Ann Arbor Art Fair and the National Baby Food Festival both taking place this weekend in Michigan, but I would be remiss if I did not also mention the 33rd Annual Antique & Garage Sale taking place in downtown Royal Oak. Why travel from site-to-site in an effort to purchase others' treasures/garbage (trarbage) when they will just bring all of their trarbage directly to you...assuming that you are located at the Lafayette Avenue parking structure between 5th and 6th street in Downtown RO. Admission is $1 if you happen to be over the age of 12, but can you really put a price on excellence?

Yes you can. $1.

At a yard sale up north my brother recently purchased a children's Renaissance costume as well as a massive comforter embroidered with Disney characters. He was reluctant to purchase the items at the joint cost of $0.50 because of general lack of need, and the woman tried to negotiate with him at $0.25. He was like "You don't quite understand. It's not exactly the cost of the items that is the barrier in this transaction."
