Do you know what this is in the back of our car? Notice how it's folded up and fits so well in our tiny space.
Did you guess right?
It's a jin-u-wine Radio Flyer All Terrain Wagon (ATW).
Look at those wheels. You can just tell this wagon really will go on any terrain, right?
The wooden base is in excellent shape.
When my husband and I saw it at a yard sale, we
There was another woman standing near it so I was a little worried. I exclaimed, "Wow! Look at this wagon." I couldn't help myself. I felt like I had to give her a chance to say she had seen it first.
The following dialog from her had my husband and me laughing so hard. She said, "I had a wagon like that when I was a little girl. (Uh, oh. She has a sentimental attachment to it.) I hate that wagon. (WHAT?) There were 3 of us girls and my mom would load us up in it and pull us to the A&P. "
She pulled off the front of it. She said she had to sit in front with her legs hanging over. She felt every bump. Then she and her sisters had to hold all the grocery bags on the trip back. I wish I had a tape recorder because there is no way I can tell you how funny she was. She kept repeating how much she hated that wagon. We were just rolling. (No pun intended.)
I texted my daughter to see if she wanted the wagon and she said--------no. Well, we weren't leaving without that wagon. We had to scrounge and pool our money (I'm setting the scene here for another post.) to pay the $20, which we thought was a very fair price.
I thought you might like to see how all the sides come off for easy loading in the car or for another use. We decided if she didn't need it to haul our grandkids
We thought it was a great deal and a great start to our day of yard saling. Little did we know what else was in store. (Setting the scene again ~ foreshadowing.)
What was in your big yard sale haul?
