Pillows and Parties

By Blaise

I Hosted a party/garage sale in a bachelor flat with nowhere to sit except my bed and a couch my friends had already bought, but thankfully had not taken delivery of. I displayed everything I wanted to sell in a large wall unit. The cabinet was conveniently sectioned off in to small square pigeon holes that could fit the following items:

  • 7 Bags of Opened, but rarely used baking flour
  • Sticks of roll on deodorant; bug spray; sunscreen – all used
  • Weights and a soccer ball
  • Miscellaneous books with titles such as “Some of my best friends are white” and “University of Gravel Roads”
  • A blonde wig
  • Cling Wrap, 2 new rolls and 1 used (Subsequently rescinded)
  • Cuban Cigars in a Protein Powder Humidor
  • 3 pairs of Sz 11 shoes and a matching barbeque tray with firelighters to burn the shoes.
  • Sushi set including opened pack of seaweed and soy sauce
  • Box o Knots; tailors tape and a bicycle tube
  • Sony RX100 compact camera and sliding keyboard text phone
  • Cross Country Skis
  • Snowboard/Minivan helmet
  • Spices
  • Expired dry goods


The Outcome

  • I no longer have 7 bags of flour!
  • No one took me up on my award winning blonde wig – It may still be for sale at a Value Village near you!
  • Value Village is owned by Walmart!
  • Thrift stores are good places to buy lightweight bags and handbags
  • Thrift stores are good places to buy Travel Pillows
  • Do not buy a travel pillow from a thrift store the day before you leave, because it is unlikely you will have time to wash it
  • Using a second hand travel pillow with no hair is recommended
  • Cutting your hair off after using a second hand travel pillow is also recommended

    Brilliant! I’m adopting your idea and going to plan a Party/garage sale when I leave France 🙂
    Hope some one took the creepy eye!

        What can I say Scott. I have some very special friends. Don’t loose hope. There should be some great photos and entertaining experiences coming soon.

      No-one bought the Creepy Eye Love. Maybe Value Village will have better luck. If they can sell used pillows they can sell anything!
