Get your lazy self
Out of that bed.
There's stuff to buy,
You can sleep when you're dead!

Fire up the wagon,
Clear out all that stuff.
(I hope this big U-Haul
has space for enough!)

Hotdog! What a find!
I'm the first on my block
To have an authentic
Armenian rock!

Now, these will look great
Standing next to my shrubs.
It's easy to trim
And it only eats grubs.

Amazing! How cool!
This thing has great charms.
A genuine Venus de Milo
With arms!

An original Picasso.
You can tell by the faces.
Plus the paint and the numbers
Are all in the right places.

O Wow! First edition.
"The Old Man and the Sea."
Imagine that, written
In 2003!

Time to head home
I've got quite a large load, so
I'll save all my stuff to go on
Antiques Roadshow!

I'll be sure to watch the Roadshow now, by golly. If I see a pair of pigtails flying around between the tables, I'll know that's my Katydid snapping up all the great deals. Take the money and run, Katydid!

With storage prices the way they are, I stopped at a few garage sales to see if I could buy one. The owners told me to fxxh off. All they had was old junk to sell There should be a law forcing truth in advertizing.

Funny one, Katy.

I got the first edition of the Bible, written in 2004. Wanna buy it.

I love the painting by number, this has made me laugh. An old neighbour asked where you could buy striped paint. Oh boy oh boy, you do get 'em..

Very cute and clever write I will be looking for you on the roadshow

Some years ago my wife and kids got together and put out all our junk for a garage sale and at the end of the day we made over 500 bucks. Amazing how many people showed up. Great write

LOL . . . LOL2. I think I have been guilty of going to one (1) garbage . . . er . . . garage sale and have never been to a flea market. Still, your poem illustrates how the fertile(?) mind works. Something for nothing, or a little nothing as possible, is the come-on. Gone are the days--since Antiques Roadshow--of just picking through stuff you might can use, no, now it is the FIND that carries the day for a large majority of professional garage sale goers. Great bit of Americana here, Katy.

I usually only want to buy the garage itself...its funny how people get so upset when they have a sale of their garage and then don't want to sell it when someone asks...;) Ed

I couldn't help but feel a bit of jealousy over that rock! Do you know how long I've searched for one of those? lol
I think maybe you may be kin somewhere down the line...I came from a long long history of Garage Sale junkies!
Love the humor Katy!
