The 10 Most Interesting Items Found At The Ultimate Yard Sale
CONCORD - Sellers and buyers of all kinds put the ultimate in Ultimate Yard Sale Saturday.
Concord's Ultimate Yard Sale took place this weekend at the Everett Arena.
You never know what you're going to find at a yard sale, let alone a yard sale described as the "ultimate" one.
Though if you looked around closely enough, you may have seen some items being sold that made the yard sale deserving of the title.
Below are the most interesting items found at the Ultimate Yard Sale.
10. Bulldozer lamp
This homemade working lamp embodies the reduce, reuse, recycle, mentality.
Made from a broken remote control bulldozer, Gary Lavallee of Pembroke said he was inspired to make the piece because he didn't want to throw it away.
The piece was going for $45.
As for why Lavalle was at the Ultimate Yard Sale, "to pay the rent," he said.
9. Racecar phone
Forget your racecar bed, answer some important phone calls on this bad boy and you'll be the talk of the town.
8. Charlie Chaplin doll
The vendor said he thought this doll was from the 30s.
The fact that a Charlie Chaplin doll from the 30s is still in existence and being sold for $5 no less, is amazing.
What a bargain!
7. Portable keyboard
This item is more humorous than cool.
Can you imagine an instance where someone's like, "what happened to our keyboard?! We need one stat!" and then you save the day and just whip out your collapsible portable keyboard.
That actually happens, you know.
6. Leather coat for your cat
Does this item need an explanation and how has it not sold yet?
5. Lady pipe
This is for all the ladies in the house!
Feel classy and elegant with this feminine glass pipe.
Eleanor Poirier of Concord offered a wide range for her customers. She described her store as, "A whimsical mish-mosh of Japanese anime and manga fandom, glittery victorian romance paraphernalia, vintage clothing, books and some beanie babies."
Poirier is at the yard sale because"It seemed like a dream opportunity."
She said that most yard sales are unpredictable but to sell her items at the Ultimate Yard Sale offered more "concentrated attention."
"It seemed like a golden opportunity," she said.
4. Roach headdress
While this item wasn't for sale, it was still interesting enough to include in the list.
Artist Bud Thibault of the Lakota tribe said that the headdress is from his tribe, made by a late friend, and is the equivalent to a top hat when going to a pow wow.
The headdress is made from the porcupine, deer tail, and wool.
This piece, in particular, is priceless to Thibault but he has made a smaller one selling for $120.
3. Graflex camera
Where do you plug it in? What size memory card does it take?
2. Lego figurines
"Do you have a Luke Skywalker?" asked a customer. "Yes, I have him in his Stormtrooper outfit and classic Luke Skywalker," said the merchant.
The vendor said he didn't know how many miniature figures he had displayed but it sure was a lot.
Complete any lego collection or childhood dream at this station for $4 a figure or 3 for $10.
1. Creepy marionette puppet
Its a doll head painted black with two horns, doll arms, and wooden feet. What is it?
"Some kind of marionette puppet," said seller Bob Parent of Concord.
Parent thinks the puppet is from the 30s or 40s.
"A lot of people have picked it up today and nobody's bought it."
Who knows why is hasn't sold?
