Tag Sailors

The Price Is Right TV Theme : The Price Is Right

This last weekend, in hopes of clearing out much of the clutter in the basement, I held a tag sale (otherwise known as a yard sale). All I can say is that I'm sure a proposal could be put forth, and grant money found, for a study of those who peruse tage sales...let's call them Tag Sailors.

Tag Sailors are a unique breed to say the least. Our tag sale was listed in the newspaper to start at 9 AM. There were cars going past at 7. And I'm not talking about rusty 1973 Pintos...the majority of vehicles were cars like Lexuses or big shiny SUV's. Some of the Tag Sailors even recognized each other ... presumably from the last tag sale they were both at up the street. You can tell the seasoned tag sale veterans from the riff-raff, too. They are the ones that bargain over $1 items as if their life depended on it...right before getting back into their 2006 Lexus that is.

Although I can see the benefit of holding a tag sale, I'm not sure what you gain by going to tag sales. I suppose that you might chance upon a super deal on an original Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album with all the accompanying Sgt. Pepper dress-up pop-outs still intact...but you're more likely to find a set of 6 plastic cups that don't match each other, nevermind anything in your kitchen.
