Friday Fictioneers 7 February 2014 Meets the Daily Prompt: Yard Sale

Virginia stood and her fanny pack sagged with the weight of the change and single dollar bills she had tucked in. It was yard sale day and she had gone carefully through the boxes in her garage, the ones in her mother's pantry, and the ones she had almost forgotten from her sister's storage shed.
