Garage Sale America
By Bruce Littlefield
I'm delighted to be a part of another MotherTalk Blog Book Tour.
It's the perfect time of year for Bruce Littlefield's Garage Sale America. I'm just warming up for the sale season. I'm not a collector, but I love the idea of finding that diamond in the rough, like a pair of old salt and pepper shakers for my mom, or, when the stars align, getting a great deal on something we need like a music stand for Splinter or golf tees for Smartypants.*
My husband doesn’t understand my attraction to searching through other people’s discarded crap. But Bruce, he gets it. He not only speaks to me in this book, he elevates me. According to Bruce, I’m not merely digging through strangers’ trash, I’m an anthropological voyeuristic warrior. Digging through the soils of pop culture. Yes!
Get more tips and keep up with Bruce’s latest adventures through his blog.
Garage Sale America goes great with Killer Stuff, Sharon Fiffer’s garage-sale themed murder mystery set right here in north suburban Chicago. I read Killer Stuff a few months ago for my book group and it provided a good context for Garage Sale America. Bakelite! Buttons and smalls! Competing for collectibles! It’s all there.
