Boy Garage Sale

Big news: Stella the vintage bike sold!
A foxy Spinster bought her and I hope their first few weeks together have been magical.

However, after selling Stella I realized I went about selling her all the wrong way.

I was reading an article in the newspaper about how a girl sold her bike on Craigslist and an eligible young bachelor came to check it out. Turns out he was checking out a lot more than the bike because the two got married.


Here I had an excellent chance of finding a husband and I totally blew it. But I’m not sure I would want to date a guy who wanted to buy my red cruiser bike.

This whole sell-your-stuff-to-get-married thing has got me thinking though.

I need to start holding male focused garage sales.

I think I’ll start by selling:

P90X dvds...

How to: Duct Tape Origami booklets....

A portable ping pong set...

Fork/knife chopsticks...


Penny cufflinks with personalized year...


This freaky bird made out of power tools...

A tie made out of wood...

A geek clock (this will reel in the engineers baby!)

A skateboard stool...


A face mug...


Recycled record bookends...


Only one problem. I don’t own a single manly thing. Which means I will have to buy them. And then re-sell them.

This is starting to seem like a lot of work. Maybe I’ll just try flat ironing my hair instead.

Stay classy,

p.s. If you really do want to buy these things just click the (*) next to every pic and it will take you to the mother ship of weird gifts. :)


  1. I would buy 75% of that stuff. Does that make me manly?
    ah well. I'll own it. :)

  2. haha this is so true. I think you should invest in a nice sexy audi, throw in some nice skis, a giftcard for textbook rental and some nice jcrew slacks and I think your ideal man just might give you a ring and show up on your porch.


  3. WOODEN TIE!!! hahahaha I'm dying

  4. OH WOAH, that wooden tie is gonna get all the men, ;) Hahahahah.

  5. Lol. Dude, I think you're on to something. Every guy I know is looking for a tie made out of a nice sanded cedar.

    Your blog makes me laugh. I. love. it.

    The end.
