A Tag Sale With A Plot Twist

Rural Intelligence Home and GardenOkay, so a lot of the stuff is kinda hideous.  What tag sale isn’t?  On the plus side, there is a certain éclat that accrues to any object that appears as a prop in a major motion picture, particularly one directed by the estimable Ang Lee.  Even if that object is, when looked at with perfect objectivity, kinda hideous. 

Taking Woodstock, the movie the Academy-Award-winning director has been shooting in Columbia County since July, has wrapped, and most of the crew have left town.  All that remains are the props and a couple of people to oversee their dispersal.  Whether there is something there for you depends a lot on how you feel about 1950s/60s furniture of inauspicious provenance and the sort of camping equipment that might have been the dernier cri in 1969.  There are gun racks and the kind of outdated refrigerators that jack up the electric bill.  But there is also a mildly intriguing bench, a few little end tables that might not be bad with a coat of paint, a couple of sinks that could have some potential, if you squint.  Hey, you never know.  Which, of course, is why we go to tag sales.
