Rural America thrives on garage sales and estate auctions. On any given weekend you can drive around the countryside and attend any number of public auctions. This weekend Gail and I attended a local auction to see what we might find. We saw a few things we needed, but they were not quite right, so we did not stay to bid on them. Today's auction was at the home of some folks who were leaving the area.
Every local paper and ad newsletter lists auction bills. The auctions are always well attended, and everything sells. At the end of the day, nothing is left. It is the ultimate garage sale.
