Like how much people are willing to spend on old knickknacks.
Or how much old knickknacks can actually be worth.
You can also learn to repel insects by rubbing a bounce dryer sheet on yourself.
Okay you cannot learn that at every garage sale, but I did at Amelia's today. I was helping out for the day, using my slimy car salesmen-like tricks to strike up bargains and interest. All the while mosquitos were brunching away on my A+ blood type, and any other blood type present. Bugs just adore a good garage sale.
|can you imagine people have to pose for this shot and let the little vampire do his thing?|
Instead of quarters, I got some invaluable advice.
I learned from a customer that dryer sheets are the best/cheapest way to protect yourself from flies! 'They are better than any bug spray product out there!' he insisted. Just give a little rub-a-dub-dub, and 'bounce' your skin scrub!
And.....the test worked! No bites!
And i sure smelled nice. And I still do - it has been hours since that test above and my arms are still laundry fresh.
A bounce sheet will now have to join the jungle collection of teabags, candy, lipbalms, plastic cutlery and receipts that reside in my purse. You never know when a mosquito herd could strike.
