It is time for another installment of "What on Earth?!!" Today's what on earth has us trying to sort out items that are very definitely future garage sale from possible private sale or eBay items.
Garage sale items are usually:
a) Too big or WAY too fragile to ship.
b) Just don't warrant eBay charges.
Some things are obviously garage sale, albeit some very COOL garage sale items. And when we get that garage "sale friendly" (i.e., there is room to PUT things in the garage), you're all invited. Camping in the backyard is possible for roadtrippers. Less adventurous roadtrippers could make a weekend of it in one of lovely Chicago B&B's or hotels. You may fulfill your garage sale dreams here. Or you may just enjoy all the bungalow and Frank Lloyd Wright sightseeing that our fair city has to offer. :)
Slidetrays and storage boxes. Four cardboard boxes of them. < Two boxes full of slide trays are adopted
A lovely pleather carry-on bag:
More luggage. A set of "That 70's Show" Samsonite:
More Samsonite. This a little newer...in the box. (Took out for photos) Oh yes. And all baggage has keys for locks. Nifty eh?
This is a set of audiocassette and VHS tape holders that I know you are wanting...NEEDING...sorry. Couldn't find the 8-track tape holder.
Actually, these next three are kind of cool. Just two big for shipping. Both of these bags are from before W and L were married. So, I believe they are pre-1934 or so...
And I just really dig this one because it is an "Amelia Earhart" suitcase. Celebrities were used for brand identity pretty early it seems. My guess, just out of respect, would be that this is from between 1928 and 1937...
And would it be a garage sale without vintage appliances? In this case, we have many typewriters. And adding machines. And lawyer's files, steel file cabinets, wooden file trays and other office items galore. They were lawyers and many of their office things wound up here. Here's just a typewriter (of a few of them):
