Rummage sale

Sometimes, the family has a rummage sale:

Much of the stuff is out front because the garage is very much too full! Rummage sales (jumble sales, garage sales) are a big deal in some places.  

  • We have an oversupply of goods

  • We have changing needs as we all age

  • We develop interests and we drop interests, often quite gradually

  • Fashions change and some things, colors, styles become become markers of by-gone times, history

We mostly want space but it would be nice to get some money for the goods as well.  Should this t-shirt announcing a 1997 ski race go for $5 or $10?  It is in good shape: no holes, no stains.
