I usually don’t do much more than take up space, because I’m too cheap to buy much (I think my highest purchase to date is $20). Seems like there’s always some little thing that we need here at the church or at the rectory that I can get for 10 percent of full price (or less) at those sales.

And yet … one of the things that always strikes me—especially at larger estate sales—is the ephemeral
