Yard Sale Adventures #002

I managed to hit a few sales this morning. It was cool out, overcast and looking like rain. One of them was a full-house Estate Sale that I think got hit pretty hard on Friday. There was still a lot of stuff left and they were in 50% off mode. I got through a few more and stopped a local produce stand in Tucker to get some goober peas. Once it started to rain I dropped by my local Goodwill and called it a day.

Today's damage from the estate sale:
  • Hawaii, Gem of the Pacific by Oscar Lewis (1954)
  • Holland House Cocktail Mix measuring jigger (these are awesome)
  • Texas Instruments TI-2500 Datamath Version 3 calculator (it has some corrosion from the original batteries that were left in it but who knows.... it may work)
Damage from yard sale:
  • One blue Coleman cooler that fits in the boot of my car (great for transporting goober peas)
And from Goodwill:
  • Two Trader Vic's Plain Coconut Mugs that seem to be in great shape. They seem like they must be a little more recent that some of the ones I've found references for on the web and in my books. The bottom reads "MADE ONLY FOR TRADER VIC" in a circle and then "USA" in the center.

Altogether I spent about $4 for everything except the goober peas.
Peas, peas, peas, peas
Eating goober peas
Goodness, how delicious,
Eating goober peas.
(yes, I grew up singing this song about them.)
