How to train a husband in the art of garage sales...

...and what happens if you do it right!

Teach him right from the start that all garage sale signs contain immense possibilities. That rusted metal is cool. That clutter is really a subjective word. That form is often preferable over function.

If you do these things with serious intent this is what COULD happen.

Your sweet husband could potentially come home after a trip to the lovely coffee shop on the corner (where he remembers that you take a decaf medium, soy, sugar-free milky way latte) and say...

"Quick, get your shoes on! There is a big garage sale up the street and they are selling antiques!"

AND

You could then buy a cool rusted metal object like a big, rusty cultivator wheel to turn into a rose trellis. I'm not promising that this will happen to you...

But it might...if you train him well!

Start training today!

Rusty objects are a horrible thing to waste.

Sigh.
