Garage Sales: Just Say No
WC went to a garage sale this past weekend. For the first time in probably twenty years. Most garage sales WC has seen feature recycled dumpster diver trophies. But this garage sale was at Candy Waugaman’s house. Candy is an amazing Alaska historian. She turned out to have a few truly appalling items:
But she also had some pretty amazing stuff for sale, too. Jeannette Nichol’s 1924 History of Alaska, and a first edition of Robert Griggs’ 1922 The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. All the proceeds from her garage sale went to charities. Let’s just say that despite his best intentionsWC made some charitable contributions. And Nichol’s and Griggs’ books live with WC now. But not the lamp.
