Do you, in fact, need a yard for a yard sale?

This might seem like a odd concept, but it seems the new fad here in this little corner of the US is to set up your old junk on the side of the road. No yard or garage needed. This self-service yard sale is an interesting concept. The most interesting thing about it, from my perspective, is that the stuff they have out isn't even interesting useful stuff, it's truly just junk.

A friend who moved up here from Louisiana apparently has noticed the same strange thing. They even saw one of these roving yard sales set up on a median in the middle of the road with such exciting items as broken lawn chairs. So, is this enterprising business ot just some folks who don't have enough excitement in their lives?

Happy yard saling!

Indeed, well we had many discussion in my youth about the fact that there were yard sales and garage sales, but no car port sales. Hmmm...
