Estate Sale Roundup: December 12-14

He ain't heavy, he's my cousin: We tackle unresolved gifting this week.

If you can't bear strident retailers screaming about some Christmas countdown, try discarding the big-box retail chain-around-our-necks plan, and grab a map instead. You'll still find too much for yourself, but you won't break the bank. Note Bene: The tide brings an ark's worth of outdoor enhancements this week.
