For $23 at an Estate Sale on North Virginia Avenue

You can buy…

1) Two folding chairs in bad condition but solid construction

unnamed-192) A vintage china serving plate

3) The VHS trilogy of Star Wars and Indiana Jones

4) An N Sync Justin Timberlake doll in original box

5) A Darth Maul action figure with hover craft

These are the things I get to discover when I take a one hour bus ride home instead of driving on the expressway or LSD. Perhaps I should thank POTUS for making me not drive the car home today? I love my new neighborhood! Random thoughts from Jim…



About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!

    Best thing about taking the bus is you can read, one never has enough time for reading.
    My advice for estate sales is to buy only if you will use it or really will enjoy having and looking at it.
