'Most Amazing Garage Sale Ever, Dude'
Perhaps the owner of these items says it best, "I travel the world collecting things. This Saturday, April 19, I will be selling a lot of small decorative items from more than 40 countries that won`t fit into the new house I just bought. You don`t want to miss this. You will not walk away empty-handed because there is way too much cool stuff that I have to let go of. This is not your normal garage sale. You will discover items you won`t see anywhere else at prices that are so low you won`t believe it. Shopping bags are provided." Since no specific items are listed, this one is a crapshoot at best. Perhaps someday we will all have personal shopping drones to dispatch for previews. 405 Kenniston, 78752; Sat., 7am-2pm.
