    I Like Yard Sales

      When I was growing up and lived at home my mom loved going to yard sales, and would stop at them whenever she would get the chance. I was always ashamed to get out, for fear that someone I went to school with would see me. I don’t know why I had always let that...

    Some Of My Best Things

    There is no doubting of the value of a good yard sale buy. I love to go to them, flea markets and auctions. And I'm always proud to point out my buys to visitors. I have a circa-1940s Hoosier cabinet that I paid a whopping $60 for and all it needed was a coat of paint. I bought a...

    You Never Know What You'll Find!

    Yard sales truly are excellent. As the saying goes "One man's trash is another man's treasure." And let me tell you, I love other people's trash. I love looking through stuff, finding just random things, and then buying them really cheap, it's pretty fantastic. =)

    I Love Yard Sales. ...

    I love yard sales. I love finding bargins. Usually you can find great bargins in old antiques etc.... Sometimes you can even turn around and re-sell the item for more to make profit off of it.

    I Live In Yard Sale Heaven.

    I live in a small, relatively poor town. EVERYBODY in our town, no matter how rich or poor, garage sales. It's a big social event and you meet all your friends Saturday mornings.  We find so many great bargains! I always joke that I wouldn't have any furniture at all if...

    No Other Dollar

    It always seems there's some little treasure thrown out as if it had no purpose left in this world that will serve to make me happier than any other dollar ever spent if only for a couple hours.

    The Big Items

    I love yard sales, but I'm not one who buys the small items. Give me the musical instruments, the appliances, game systems, computers, televisions, cameras, weapons, vehicles... I can buy this stuff for a steal, and then resale it for massive profits ! A great way to make some...
