Massive Garage Sales Spark Arbitrage Opportunitites

Reporting directly from Hog City Garage Sales today, the bargains are trading fast. I have hatched a scheme with the assistance of several local financiers to buy low priced items at discount garage sales and resell the items at higher prices at my own garage sale, only to be thwarted by a man who looks like Alf who was aggregating all the items from all the garage sales to sell at his own shop. I was down $35 at the time that the Alien Life Form overtook me. He mentioned that he was down over $400 but was sure that business would pick up as his monopoly was established. In the meanwhile, here The Jam smashing it up with "In The City", perhaps an ode to the thousand bargains trading in Hog City today.

In Hog city there's a thousand things I want to sell to you

But whenever I approach you, you make me wanna buy too

I wanna say, I wanna sell you

How about some baby dolls clothes
And some moldy garden hose

Old Cousin,

I suggest you take the lead here. The Toohills are massive in number and substantial players in Central Illinois festival-going.

If you set the time, I can guarantee you a crowd.

Outside of the vaunted CB&B fest, what are Central Illinois' finest fests?
