I'd say they have moved their good stuff to places where they
can get the most money.Peddlers Malls are usually good places to move those kinds of things. People from all over come to scavenge for real deals, in hopes of making a few more bucks, on down the road.Who can blame them. But then there are the folks who know what things are worth, and are tickled to make a real find to add to their collection. Then there are other folks don't have a clue as to what things are worth, but then again,they may not care. They may just want to move some of their
older stuff to make room for some newer stuff. But back to the old pots and pans. I keep "hens and chickens", and they sell good at yard sales and flea markets, and sometimes they sell better if they are in some type of quaint container.This is where I use a lot of the granite pots and pans like Grandma used. I love working with plants, so I am constantly thinking of what I can put a plant in to help it sell better. I collect lots of pretty cups. Many times,I'll buy a cup for 25 or 50 cents, only to get it home and find a chip or a crack that I had not originally seen. Oh well, no matter. It will do fine for a starter plant of some kind.Good starter plants are usually
anything that will live in a small container,sometimes even in water alone,like philodendrons.Some times you can start herbs in small cute containers, then when the buyer gets it home they can transfer it to whatever they choose.I like to give folks starts of my Christmas cactus on occasion, and a pretty container is always nice.The things you can grow in small containers is endless.Take this old four wheeler tire for instance, not really that small,but it works great for a planter. I declare,I really must get started on myself a greenhouse. I've got my mind a reeling now on the endless projects I want to work on.Gardening and working with dirt has always been my real passion,but the weather makes it so unbearable most of the time, I don't get much of an opportunity to enjoy it.Either it is too hot or too cold,but now if I had a green house, I think I might be able to keep it at a comfortable temperature year round.I need to do a little more research on that,too,while I'm at it.These are just a few of the kinds of projects you might find me working with at any given moment of any given day.No rhyme nor reason to my daily schedule. It's just whatever I choose to get into that day.Ain't life grand!
And,oh yes,Leo Reams,if you're leading just a so-so life,you ain't doing something right.
