    A Garage Sale Convert

    My hubby is a garage sale guru.  If you live on the Island like me, one of the best places to go garage sale-ing is out East in the beginning of the summer.  Rich people throw out cool stuff.  I was previously a thrift store maven exclusively until meeting the...

    I Love Garage Sales

    A few years ago I stopped at a garage sale. The woman had passed away and her sister was clearing out the condo.  I was fortunate to find a couple of multipacks of panties.  They were unopened and offered at a good price.  I decided to buy them both and continue to look...

    I was pedaling up to the grocery store

    when I happened to spy a garage sale sign. The sign was spray painted with a black arrow pointing across the street, then re-sprayed with a yellow arrow pointing in the opposite direction down a side street. As I was soon to find out, this confusing sign would prove to be...

    Just Not Today

    Today's "garage sale" run, was like a wild goose chase. The ones that were in our neighborhood had nothing but baby and toddler clothing and toys. Geesh, what a waste of gas. Then the farther out we went the worse it got. There were signs up everywhere and yet when we went to...

    Another odd one today garage sale shopping!

    Maybe I need to stay away from these for a while. I've been looking for a portable cassette player. Old skool, I know, but I have a lot of audio books on tape and I like to listen to them when I'm cycling. I had a good one but it broke mysteriously (I think my wife dropped...

    Treasures

    You have to look close sometimes to find them, but little treasures may be lurking behind every garage sale sign. My parents were antique dealers and because of that i am always on the lookout for old things or collectibles from my era. I have a hard time passing up a good yard...

    Have A Lot Of Relative's Estates To Liquidate

    Since no estate liquidators are interested in what I have (not high-end enough), I'm attempting to sell at a garage sale type venue. I just had a 3-day sale and only 6 people stopped and I made just $35. I don't know what people are looking for, but apparently it's nothing I have...
