Bruce Scapecchi, of Des Moines, is a regular shopper at garage sales. He especially likes to look for items on sale during the warmer months. “I go, in the summer, anywhere to 2 and 5,000 garage sales,” he told KCCI.
One day in 2013, Scapecchi went looking for garage sales again and noticed that there was one organized by Sue McEntee. When Scapecchi reached McEntee’s home driveway, he laid his eyes on the items underneath a table on the floor.
“I saw a bunch of baseball bats under the table, mostly metal,” he recalled.
