Howard the Duck is back by popular demand. Buy balls at the Meadowbrook garage sales

For Meadowbrooker’s in Brighton, it’s that time of the spring:  the annual Meadowbrook neighborhood sale on Saturday the 20th and Sunday the 21st from 9 am to 3 pm.

The Meadowbrook neighborhood sale is rated one of the stronger “first ring” suburban sales in Monroe County. The sale is considered a family outing destination. Families with young children often make a day of the event, strolling and biking through the leafy, sidewalked boulevards with its early to mid twentieth century architecture.

For years, Talker — at 155 Avalon Drive between Winton and Westall — has offered shoppers a virtually inexhaustible supply of orbs, sports equipment and baseball cards. See Talker staff demands royalties! Buy orbs at Sotheby’s in Brighton: the Meadowbrook Garage Sale. And meet the staff

Last year marked the debut of Howard the Duck. In 1976 and 1977, Eugene Kramer collected every single issue, including the United Kingdom #1.  Eugene agreed to sell Howard to an appropriate home.  First, Howard took a promotional tour on the canal at Schoen Place where his feathered fans followed.  See Howard the Duck is not for the birds!

Alas, we couldn’t find a decent nest for Howard. So, he’ll be available this weekend Saturday the 20th and Sunday the 21st from 9 am to 3 pm at 155 Avalon Drive between Westfall and Winton.

This year

This year our specialty will be tennis balls. We collected hundreds over the year. I can’t divulge our sources otherwise you would scavenge yourself. But we have enough to last you the season and beyond. See The Old Guard and New Blood at the Meadowbrook Garage Sale

About The Author

dkramer3@naz.edu

Welcome to Talker of the Town! My name is David Kramer. I have a Ph.D in English and teach at Keuka College. I am a former and still active Fellow at the Nazareth College Center for Public History. Over the years, I have taught at Monroe Community College, the Rochester Institute of Technology and St. John Fisher College. I have published numerous Guest Essays, Letters, Book Reviews and Opinion pieces in The New York Times, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Buffalo News, the Rochester Patriot, the Providence Journal, the Providence Business News, the Brown Alumni Magazine, the New London Day, the Boston Herald, the Messenger Post Newspapers, the Wedge, the Empty Closet, and the CITY.  My poetry appears in The Criterion: An International Journal in English and Rundenalia and my academic writing in War, Literature and the Arts and Twentieth Century Literary Criticism. Starting in February 2013, I wrote for three Democratic and Chronicle  blogs, "Make City Schools Better," "Unite Rochester," and the "Editorial Board." When my tenure at the D & C  ended, I wanted to continue conversations first begun there. And start new ones.  So we created this new space, Talker of the Town, where all are are invited to join. I don’t like to say these posts are “mine.” Very few of them are the sole product of my sometimes overheated imagination. Instead, I call them partnerships and collaborations. Or as they say in education, “peer group work.” Talker of the Town might better be Talkers of the Town. The blog won’t thrive without your leads, text, pictures, ideas, facebook shares, tweets, comments and criticisms.
