Garage for sale

Sometimes you just want to be nosy. Root around buried secrets, hidden obsessions and swim in the deep waters of prurient castoffs.

My best bud Dave and I often go on ridiculous weekend adventures around Seattle and go to garage, rummage and church sales. They are often Dave’s idea, as he scours the web for large gatherings where piles of such and such can be found. I go along for humor as usual, the Threepio to his R2.

Here are a few of those tales–digging through people’s cherished possessions in order to score a Saturday deal.

But it means weekends are more valuable than ever.

So let’s begin. And we’ll start with, naturally, the Broncos.
