Yeah this sounds like a dare or challenge for something you already found.  Were a rich FLA couple selling their illegal Russian maid that only knows the english phrase "sucky sucky"?  You would win.

We're gonna have some stuff to sell...Honestly I'd love to have an electronics garage sale right here!  We went through a lot of stuff last night (There is so much more to be gone through) as we were getting yet another Expedit for records placed.

If we were to do such a thing, would any of you be willing to offer a hand?  Anders is kinda on his own around here as far as lifting and moving stuff around.  Our first thought was to bring some stuff to the shop, but it's getting a little full there.

How about a garage sale at the shop???????.  Anything anyone brings and does not sell, goes back home.  Seller must be present, no prior drop-offs, etc.

That's a good idea too...but again, hauling stuff out of here isn't so easy.  You haven't seen the amount of stuff lol.

I don't know anything about the tennis racket market but that sure sounds like a score.

The racquet new a couple of years ago was in the $100-$150 range new. It looks like it saw very little usage.

I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

Maybe the sale holders will have to start charging admission to off set the fees.

That article shows a line of clothes washers on someone's lawn.   That is not a yard sale, that is a small business.
