My dad is a huge garage saler. I have been going to garage sales since I could ride a bike. Every weekend during the summer dad and I would get up early and ride our bikes to sales around the neighborhood. This of course only happened with a little coaxing on his part. I was always “bribed” by a maple bar from Chuck’s Donuts… or even better, french toast sticks from Burger King! The Burger King trip was dangerous but worth it, and was usually followed by my mom saying ” You let her ride her bike down Duvall?!” Danger is my middle name, when it comes to breakfast foods. Dad really lucked out that the Burger King was located where it was. By me agreeing to ride there, that meant we could hit all the garage sales in other neighborhoods off Sunset and Union.
Back to the story…
So we go to these garage sales and Dad always had specifics he looked for; tools and car parts. Me on the other hand after out growing stuffed animals didn’t really have anything to collect.These windows served as a perfect distraction to early mornings and sifting through other peoples junk. By this time I was much older and no longer on a bike, the Burger King is long gone and in moved a Starbucks drive-thru.
