What I bought at David Cassidy's Garage Sale
Over the last few days I've gotten some nice emails from other David Cassidy fans who have found my blog. I am kicking myself cuz if I knew David Cassidy still had soooooo many devoted fans all over the world I would have bought up all those towels I saw for sale and cut them into 1" squares and sold them for big bucks and now I would now be dictating this blog to my full-time assistant that I could have hired with all the money I made, while my butler feeds me bon bons. But alas, I didn't think about doing that. Crap.
At David Cassidy's garage sale, I did buy one article of clothing. (And I still have not seen what my sister purchased while there). The clothing was all disorganized and they wanted $5 a piece. I didn't feel like digging around in a cardboard box. $5 per piece of clothing is considered highway-robbery in my book. Or maybe I am just too cheap. But then I grabbed a red hat and the seller guy said it was $1. So I bought it. The extra benefit of this particular hat is that I think in some countries, I think I could use it as a Burkha if need be. Will post a pic of me in my David Cassidy hat/Burkha soon. I am calling it my David Cassidy hat, but in reality it is his son's hat Beau. How do I know? Cuz "Beau" is written in marker on the underside of the hat. I had no idea what it meant at the time but I did a"wiki David Cassidy" online search and saw that Beau is his son's name. But I am sure David must have borrowed it from time to time, you know to run out to the mailbox in the cold upstate NY winters. So therefore, it will forever be known as my David Cassidy hat and I will never ever wash it (unless of course it gets really dirty). And I may even request to be buried in it - when the time comes in 60 or 70 years.
And since the DC fans who have contacted me really liked the pictures, I thought I would add the rest of the pics.
This is what I ended up buying - a sheet of Saratoga Box seat tickets (expired of course) with David Cassidy's name on it for $5. This is not the sheet I bought - I bought ones with Aug/Sept dates on it. But there was a stack of them.
This was the lower entry to the house - sliding doors to the unfinished basement. I think that wicker furntiture was for sale. This faces the lake.
Another view of the garage sale sign with the Rodgers Lane street sign. I don't think that for-sale sign was for the rental house (just another house that was for sale on the street) and also don't think it was his garbage can either.
Hanging out on David Cassidy's patio - all the stuff was for sale.
Saratoga racing mementos (several times a racing season, they give out a freebie of some sort).
stayed tuned for me in my David Cassidy hat.
