This Saturday my sister and I went to a tag sale not far from my house. The owner had the most amazing hat collection: fedoras in every color, floppy beach hats, pillbox hats. Unfortunately my big head only fit into one. But I bought it and it’s super cute. I also snagged two really cool purses. One is brown leather with a western detail and the other is a burgundy suede clutch. Both are perfect for fall.
But it was my sister that made the best score. I was looking at 30-year-old sheets still in their original packaging when she ran over whispering, “I found something good.” I followed her into a back room and under an old patio set was a box. Inside I saw bright orange pieces of metal. “It’s a grill, never used,” she told me. It was marked $20 so my sister bought it.
We took the Ball BQ home and investigated. It’s a Canadian-made grill, produced in about 1970. One of these was actually used on the set of That ’70’s Show. It is perhaps the coolest grill I have ever seen. And if it weren’t worth about $750 I might just buy it myself! We listed the grill on Ebay and she’s already tripled her money, but we are hoping it will go much higher. Now that’s a good tag sale find!
