Saturday Snapshot – Good for a Giggle

For years, every summer we would spend the better part of a week on Kelley’s Island with my parents.  One house that we walked past a few years ago seemed to have one of those summer long yard sales so my mom and I took pity and stopped in.  I actually did buy some beautiful Japanese tea cups, but it was this that gave me a giggle.  And inspired me to take a picture.

I just love that this man was trying to sell his old relatives for $2 🙂  I’d ask a few dollars more for my own, what about you?

    Oh, funny. And I bet he doesn’t know who they are! We found a box of old pictures in my great aunt’s house and sadly, whoever they were will remain a mystery. No one thought to put names and dates on them.

    I’d love to see who was from Oneonta, NY (third picture down in the pile), as that’s where many of my relatives settled around the time of the Revolutionary War. They stayed in the area right up through the 1950’s. I collect old photos like these and frame them and put them on the wall in the upstairs hallway … we call them ‘instant relatives’ …

    I don’t know why anyone would sell them, or anyone else would buy them! I was given an old photo of my grandfather on the weekend- and I just love it, these pictures are invaluable.

    How funny! My mom is still going through my grandmother’s old photos. Every now and then she sends me some. There are quite a few she’s thrown out because she had no idea who was in them. I should tell her she should sell them instead!
