    Haven't been finding much of anything the last few days. So I was on my way to the Goodwill in North Olmsted (Cleveland area) and saw signs for a huge yard sale sponsored by the "Westlake Historical Society" They were still unpacking so I decide to stop on my way back home. Not really my thing as there is always way too much commotion and limited parking for these types of things. Still I found a spot to park and walked around the maze of boxes. Everything was still wrapped in newspaper and people were rummaging through the boxes. Some things were on tables but a lot was just strewn on plastic tarps on the grass. They had pictures in the middle and this caught my eye. It's painted on a heavy brown paper. The paint is thick like a gouache or tempra and applied heavily probably with a large stiff brush. It is signed but I'm not really sure what it says. The frame is black with a black mat and was framed by an art store in Lakewood Ohio that's no longer in business. Just thought it was interesting and I liked the style and technique. I think it has a Roman gladiator look to it.
    One of the ladies came up and informed me that it was a donation sale. Forget the prices grab a box fill it up and then donate what you feel your selections are worth ! She also said there was a lot more coming tomorrow and if you don't see anything today make sure and stop back 9 -5 tomorrow. I'm definitely going back tomorrow ! -Mike-

      I Can't wait to see what's there tomorrow. They need to unpack and unwrap a ton of stuff and then put it away at night. What a job ! Hope it's not as windy tomorrow it was a bit chilly today, at least it wasn't raining.

      Depends on how good it is. I found some very strange tasting things passing as baked goods in the past. I let the cat smell it if she walks I don't eat
