For the novice or the expert, these may come in handy:
As-is: From the latin word “As” which means “garbage” and the latin word “is” which means “with a price tag”.
Sold: Please sit on me. Please put your stuff that you bought on me. Please lean on me and eat that doughnut. You are a regular outlaw.
Fill a bag: A time when all that geometry you took in high school finally pays off.
Estate sale: Criteria must be that people must step INTO a living room area. Two items. Two hundred items. Doesn’t matter. Once the threshold has been crossed….it can be considered an estate sale.
“On Ebay it goes for ______”: I don’t sell on Ebay. But my neighbor does. But he doesn’t want to pay me that much for it either.
Boutique: Any area in a thrift store with silk flowers, a gold lettered sign, and 45+ cocktail dresses from Joan Collin’s closet.
Firm: I dare you to ask me for a lower price. Go ahead. I dare you.
Orange: Also known as the chameleon color because of it’s ability to fool people into picking up other items around it. “No..that’s a red sticker” “Sorry..that’s hot pink.” “No…that’s clearly an apricot colored tag and they are full price today”.
1/2 price day: Remember when the kid would hit the pinata and all the candy would come flying out? It’s like that…only with carts and low blood sugar.
Collectible: My uncle Herman collected dead wasps. Just sayin.
