Tivoli

BSWAM, took in a town wide garage sale just for us. Tivoli, New York.
BSWAM says,
Greetings! The quaint village of Tivoli, NY, pictured here on the banks of the upper mid-Hudson, has an annual town-wide garage sale every year.

Here we see a happy cross-section of the locals perusing one of the garage sales.

This is not a garage sale.

Many are the treasures you will find at Tivoli’s town-wide garage sale. For example, Santa and some rather shrill-looking helpers.

I think my favorite is the mother and child painting, although all three of these are brilliant.

Or a set of complete dishes minus some broken ones.

    Tivoli is full of river people who have been there since the dawn of time . What goes into their old old houses usually doesn’t ever come out again … Even upon their demise (after which descendents move in rent if not tax free ) . This can go on for centuries .

    At garage sales if one is as sharp eyed as a curator one can pick up some unwanted family-forgotten junk that can be sold on to astute city collectors for a lot of money . That genuine 1940 s Norman Rockwell coca cola Santa for instance .

    Eleanor Roosevelt spent her young girlhood at a house in Tivoli from the first floor balcony of which her mad uncle would pick off approaching houseguests with a rifle .
