This past Saturday, I had a chance to make a leisurely walk around the Wills-Ford Community Yard Sale in nearby Dover Township. It's a sprawling sale the takes up a few residential blocks. It even has its own food vendors.
I was pleased when I came across this nice reading copy of We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson.
It had been on my (long) list of books that I wanted to pick up and read some day, so it was pretty cool to snag a copy for 25¢.
I also snagged three other interesting books — all for 25¢ apiece — from a different vendor:
- Gettysburg by MacKinlay Kantor
- Funny Stories: Pennsylvania Dutch Wit and Humor by J.E. Herrera, hexologist1
- Little Known Facts About Bundling in the New World by A. Monroe Aurand, Jr.
And here are a few pictures I snapped at the community yard sale...
1. Here is one of the stories:
A wiseheimer tourist had breakfast on a farm in Pa. and when he saw the farmer eating pigs feet and tongue ridiculed the farmer.
"You'd never catch me eating a tongue from an animal's mouth. What a filthy habit that is! I'll have two eggs, please!!"
