What will you take in trade? June 13, 2014

OCCASIONALLY SOMETHING in an ad catches my eye and amuses me.


Read the ad directly under the 135 Garage Sales banner.

Take the Estate Sale on Sixth Avenue Southwest in Faribault.

Now let’s say I want to buy a John Deere collectible for my husband or perhaps that mink coat.

How am I supposed to pay for my purchases?

No checks, cash or credit cards are accepted.

So that leaves, uh, what? Bartering?

    Sure, why not? Let’s barter. But what, pray tell, are “HH items?”

  2. Marneymae Says:

    a dance for that mink.
    or perhaps a run of 5 clean jokes…

  3. Jackie Says:

    Ha ha…. I think maybe they forgot the period behind the “no cash”. Punctuation really does matter 🙂

  4. Maybe they just want to see how fast you can run with one of the tables of household items.

  5. Dan Traun Says:

    That is peculiar. The goal is typically to liquidate; not exchange 🙂

  6. Maybe you can recite your poetry for John Deere collectibles 🙂 Love it!
