Ring in the Bargains

I had shown more than an interest in my yard sale find. I got down on my knees for crying out loud! My brother-in-law and I went through all three boxes of her Christmas bulbs. We hovered over her collection for at least ten minutes, carefully picking through the broken glass. We pulled out all the vintage Christmas bells and mercury glass ornaments. I even made the small pile not knowing the selling price.

After making my selections, I had to ask, “How much?”

“Two dollars.” said the woman with her white sofa now in the middle of her driveway.

“Each or for the pile?” I hesitated.

She didn’t at all. “Take the pile you made. I’m moving to Florida.”

I thought the Sunshine state still had an interest in Christmas?
