Meredith, NH Community Yard Sale … — May 18, 2013.

On Saturday, at the Meredith yard sale, I came across a plastic bag full of little plastic figures. I asked the lady what they were and she said that they were ALL the U.S. Presidents. She wanted $5 for it. She said that it had been her sons and that he had played with them all the time. I asked her how far it went and she said ‘Regan‘. She also implied that the set was complete. The son, who appeared to be in his early teens, was also around – though immersed playing a video game. I bought the bag, without even opening it, since it looked cute and the price was right.

We didn’t get to unpack any of the stuff from the yard sale till yesterday. I got Devanee to use one of her books on the Presidents to sort them out and line them up.

No, it didn’t go as far as Regan. It stopped with Nixon and Grover was missing! That was a bummer. It is a neat set. I will take a picture and post it.

Complete sets are selling on eBay in the $50 to $75 range. No I don’t want to sell it. I want a complete set. I will build some kind of display for it.

IF you have a figure of Grover for sale let me know. Of course, I will pay. If you have another complete set you want to sell. Let me know. Yes, I contacted the seller on eBay.

      Thank YOU. My 12 year old daughter, who I tasked with doing the tallying, wasn’t paying enough attention. She was working off a list (in a book) that, correctly, showed Grover twice. So, she put a ‘cross’ against the 2nd instance and told us that Grover was missing. Given that I didn’t grow up here, I am not that au fait with the older presidents. If I was I would have realized the errors of her ways, especially given that the lady who sold me the plastic bag full of figures was fairly certain ‘that they were all in there’ — though she did think that they went as far till Carter. ANYWAY, IF you want to sell your figure I will buy it! Let me know what you want, including shipping. That way I can have TWO Grovers — to make my daughter happy. THANKS. All the best. Anura
