Garage sales still happen. They are part of summer weekends all over America. Sell your things. Spring cleaning.
You take the weird objects you have previously owned, held on to, and then you get rid of it. Usually for nothing. You are barting your goods to meet your neighbors. You receive quarters for sitting in the warm shade of a Saturday afternoon. Sell your stuff. In our new community, many people don’t have a garage/yard/whatever to sell their old books. We load up garbage bags and drop them off at thrift stores. Let someone else sell your warped records.
My friends John and Kimberly hosted a sale where anyone could come down and set up their own sale. Roman, the pictures, baked vegan muffins. He brewed a mint and a lemon sun tea. Set up his own stand and sold his goods in front of the friend sale. Garage sales and lemonade stands are a beautiful expression of community interacting on a local, self-sufficient scale.
