To Sell or Not to Sell...

There is No Question! This is a Keeper.

What did the camera miss today? Salvage Chick and Yard Sale Buddy knee deep in a dumpster. Well really, we were standing on stuff outside the dumpster looking in but it still would've made for a good photo. It turned out to be Slim Pickins so we headed South on our planned adventure to try to bilk this guy out of a big wooden fish sign Yard Sale Buddy has his eye on. The seller in his 10 Gallon Hat wants $300 but Yard Sale Buddy only wants to spend $10 and they can't seem to meet in the middle. I was calmly amassing a pile of things while the negotiations continued and Mr. 10 Gallon so wanted to piss off Yard Sale Buddy he was putting Fire Sale Prices on anything I wanted because I was "more polite and better looking" than Yard Sale Buddy. So this lovely old wrought iron lantern, with unbroken amber glass panels and in working condition? ONE DOLLAR!!! and the kicker? Yard Sale Buddy paid for it.
