Garage Sale Awesomeness

Moms and Dads dropped $1500 on Tickle Me Elmo in Christmas of 1996, but now people don't even want it for a quarter.

For more on Tickle Me Elmo madness, check out this article from People magazine.

It’s an interesting and adorable thing to find at a garage sale, although he looks a little sad sitting there amongst all this random stuff. Assumably the owner eventually grew up, so it’ll find another home.

There’s all sorts of weird stuff at these sales, and you’re likely to find everything from a Party Poker tips and tricks manual to a mug shaped like a moose. Nothing is impossible, and people’s houses seem to be full of the weirdest items you’ll ever see on sale.

If you're done tickling Elmo, you can use this guide to tickle your lady friend(s).

This would look excellent above the mantle.

 


Some people like their exotic dancers dangerous, but for those who don't ...


I'm not sure that learning to paint rocks and learning to surf are related, but what do I know?

This is one sexy shot glass that had me reaching for my Dammit Doll, but I am a bit curious why the nipples are hairy.


Why, in God's name, do the French call Waldo Charlie? This irks me to the nth degree.


The "Salty" tag is protruding from his balls. Salty balls. Get it? Nevermind.


Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini...I-Roc? I can't believe this didn't sell.


Two of my friends insisted I take this picture. Later, another friend said, "Hey, did you get a picture of the Nut Vendor jar?" We're a real mature group.

What’s the best/funniest thing you’ve ever found at a garage sale?

P.S. Commenting helps increase world awesomeness.

  • That's a load of awesomeness. But I'm seriously bothered by the French Waldo. Is it any wonder they never found him? Couldn't even get his name right.
