|Your very own Margaritaville|
paying only five bucks. If it looks familiar, you may have seen one just like it at your local liquor store. It's not hard to figure out that these big vinyl signs were probably an in-store display for Corona Beer. Personally, I never got into Jimmy Buffett's music, but I know plenty of "Parrotheads" who do. These Parrotheads love all things Jimmy Buffett, including tailgating at his annual summer concerts. In fact, I understand there's always a little bit of drinking at these concerts! (wink-wink) With that kind of devoted fan base, I knew I'd have no problem finding an eager Parrothead willing to pay nice money for this awesome banner. I posted the sign on Craigslist and before I knew it, I was meeting a buyer in a local parking lot. This guy was a player! An older gentleman with distinguished grey hair and a single gold chain around his neck, he pulled up next to me in a shiny, new Mercedes-Benz. He then forked over thirty bucks while telling me the sign was going to hang by the pool of his Florida vacation home....his personal Margaritaville!

Not a bad handful of sales for the dog days of summer. Now if only I could extrapolate that tenfold, then we'd be talking some real money! But fear not.... before you know it, fall will be here and Saturday mornings will be filled with an abundance of garage sales. In the meantime, the house painting and long postponed home repairs will continue. Not a bad thing, but not nearly as fun as flipping stuff on eBay and Craigslist!
