I'm not one for Garage Sales, but we were in the Steiner Ranch area of Austin TX last weekend, looking at brick colors to put on our house, and it happened to be during the big Steiner Ranch community garage sale where about every 10 homes had their garage door open and they didn't have to do their own marketing or advertising to get people to come.
We were looking at this particular house and discussing the colors, and I inches forward a little to see the sides. In doing so, I noticed a house that had a little tricycle thing with a handle. That looked cute... how much is that, I wondered...
I hate garage sales because of the potential confrontation. Someone is asking $20 for something that is clearly worth only a couple of bucks, and I don't want to insult them by walking away empty handed, but I also don't want to haggle the price.
However, I slowly and cautiously walked up the driveway... it was $5. Look at all the fun Alyssa can now have for only $5!!
She can touch the peddles, but doesn't understand how to actually peddle, so her feet keep falling off, but that's what the handle is for, so I can push her along as she learns.
What a great $5 spent, plus we found a great color brick to go on our house to replace the bad brick, but that's another story...
