garden closeout

today before leaving work i decided to drop by the lexington gardens to see if there were any cheap pots/soil that i could buy. after driving around lexington for about 15 minutes and being lost, i finally found it, but it was completely abandoned and deserted. there was a sign on the door that said "closed" and some notices, probably foreclosures or whatever.

then i'm searching on craigslist for a posting i saw earlier in the day for free soil. i find the posting, and right under it was another posting that said:

Public Sale of Greenhouse/Garden Center Structures, equipment, & Items

Looks like the garden went out of business and was put on sale ON CRAIGSLIST yesterday. :( and here i drove all that way expecting to buy some stuff. maybe i can get some cheap things, including:

Greenhouse $1000 each (they're pretty huge)
* The Historic John Millican Barn. Approx. This is a large two-story, hip roofed barn with a center gable and a huge off-center brick chimney. It is clad with siding, roofed with asphalt shingles, and has a 2½ story gambrel-roofed rear addition. Approximate Year Built: 1940. Note: additions and changes to the barn exterior have obscured the original structure . Best Offer.
what do they expect, me to cart it away?
* Bathroom sinks. Best offer.
* Toilets. Best offer.
* Fencing (wood) along store front. Best offer.

What has this economy done to our society? how many innocents must suffer?
