Will you attend the garage sale of P & S? What happens at your table?

I have broken phones. Oops, I mean, renovated. Lots of books, vases and lamps, shoes and 2 huge Cerwin Vega speakers. I have a flute of Rusty (ANTIGUA yeah ...), is a guitar with a small hole in the back. Oh, yes, many polyester jerseys, some Happy Meal toys, a sculpture by Lenny Kravitz, a group of agitators Julia Child of salt and soda for all!

More than 2,000 comics that I collected during the years I thought it be of some value down the road. You know what? No 🙁
