Teenage Garage Sale with Kristen Tracy!

imageToday I have with me Kristen Tracy; author of Sharks and Boys talking about what she would have at a garage sale from her childhood! 

If you were to have a garage sale of my teenage years you would find a bunch of VHS tapes from TV shows that I didn’t want to miss. Or that I wanted to watch over and over. I suspect that ALF would appear frequently and consistently. Also, lots of Johnny Carson monologues. Moving on. My parakeet died when I was a teenager. So I would probably sell off all my parakeet paraphernalia. (My grandmother accidentally killed my parakeet by burning something in a Teflon pan. My mother told me that I was not allowed to tell my grandma that she killed my parakeet. So I never did.) What else? Ooh. I’d sell glass candy as a food item at my garage sale. I ran a glass candy business in 6th grade and made a ton of money until my principal pulled me aside and told me that I had to stop selling glass candy to my classmates. What else? I should have sold off some of my dollhouse items. But I really liked my dollhouse. It was seven feet tall and had multiple levels and electricity. So maybe I would have kept all that. I never outgrew my dollhouse. Ooh. Also, at the last minute, I would add all my belts that I never wore to this garage sale.

Thanks Kristen! The glass candy idea is really cool!
