And we would've gotten away with it too...


 Yes, Monday came as a great shock to us as well. Don't you wish you could have just one more weekend day? To, you know, hang out with your friends....ride around in a van...solve groovy mysteries...eat sandwiches- that type of thing. Well, so do we. And all of that might have happened, except that we don't have a van. Several of us did have sandwiches for lunch but, as it turned out, that was pretty unrelated. Van or no, we still look (stay with me here) cool, and you can too if you check out our May 19th sale where all these and other outfits as well will be available for purchase.



Meet Cody, the newest member of TeamYardSale2012. He rocks an ascot like nobody's business.
Actually Chris, every time there seemed to be a monster, it was just bad guys in masks.
Jinkies!
"Pizza! My favorite hobby!" Shaggy says this. I may have made some pizza promises to the crew this afternoon that have as yet gone unfulfilled. Sorry guys, I guess you can't trust anyone.
Hunting for pizza... or a sandwich.

Scooby Dooby Doo...Where are you?
We got some work to do now....Obviously.



So, from all of us here at TeamYardSale, have a good week. Check out a haunted amusement park. Have that sandwich. Buy a van. See you tomorrow.

The Nightmare Before SpringSale or WeHeartTimBurton

Dear Tim Burton,
You make cool movies. They inspire us. Thanks for being so cool. One day we hope to be as cool as you. Will you read our blog? We promise not to feature your films every day. Unless you want us to. In which case, consider it handled. We should let you know in advance that we have at least two prior blogging commitments: ponies and Calvinism. Actually, we only promised to mention Calvinism so I guess that's handled. You may be surprised how hard it is to work a passing reference to Calvinism into a narrative about a costume yard sale. Maybe not. You are very cool after all. Also, do you like tortilla chips? 
Your Fans,
Erica, Jessica, and Jimmy

"My Dear Penguins...
We stand on a great threshold."



Yep, that's impressive.
We tried making a similar ice sculpture. It turns out that North Hollywood is not the optimum ice-sculpting venue. How about we all just enjoy this dress?
Strange
And unusual.



Hey Baby,
Wanna kill all humans?

Crazy Eyes.
Crazy Pies. .... you know, cause they're made of people.






There's absolutely no organic flowthrough.

I've noticed that too.




I must admit I have not had the occasion to research 'Corpse Bride' quotes before but now that I have, I'll be saying this one all the time:
"There's an eye in me soup"



Don't say Beetlejuice two more times.
Seriously, cut it out.

We may not actually have our own Bat Signal. And we may not have been allowed on the roof. But we do have this short set of stairs, the sun and a Batman t-shirt. Rock on. Have a good weekend!

Upon further consideration, we have determined that it is actually not hard all at to work Calvinism into anything. After all, it's predestined.

Get it?

Quick! Go to Beige Alert!

Dear Readers,
We would like to draw your attention to the too infrequently discussed matter of Beige Appreciation. Beige, eggshell, navajo, off-white, cream, buff, ecru, oatmeal. It goes by many names, each more thrillingly than the last, (especially that oatmeal one). It's neutral, it's elegant, it's timeless. Seriously, we made a concerted effort to represent several periods in today's beige parade. We hope our efforts weren't in vain. So take a minute today, and think about Beige. If you'd like to add more beige to your life, check out our May 19th sale for a veritable beige bounty. Thank you for your time.
In Beige Solidarity,
TeamYardSale2012

What up, homestars?

Ta-dah!

I did not make Jimmy wear a dress. Jimmy graciously volunteered (or possibly was volun-told) to wear this stunning quilted tabard. The pleating and gold trim were just fun bonuses. He's such a sport.


Stay strong, Beige Brethren.
Beige goes with everything, including leopard print socks.

Who doesn't want this outfit? For real. Admit it.

Of the SEVEN BILLION people on planet Earth, it is a documented fact that 4 billion can do a successful "couture" pose. I am not one of them.

Those aren't spirit fingers. THESE are spirit fingers.

No, I'm not up to anything. I promise.

See, Jessica is supervising.
video We thought we'd test out the long term wear-ability of some of our merchandise. You'll be happy to know that they stood up to our rigorous testing. 

And that's our show, we're here all week. Tip your waitress.

MatchyMatchy


We climbed all the way up this ladder and then realized there was a twenty dollar bill on the ground.
Word.
Yeah, we like orange satin embroidered shirts a lot.

These skirts are excellent for CanCan-ing. We can say this with some authority, because we did it. True story. Ask Raul.

Once again and as per usual: OMGRUFFLESLEEVES!!!!!

Riddles got a basketball related injury, we kept him company in the hospital.

 
I'm not sure what we're doing but we look just amazing doing it.
Clearly, the take home lesson from this photo is that we have Marine Corps jackets. 
The stupidest joke, I've ever made on this blog: Yeah, we're fly.
And so is Riddles.
