    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...

    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...

    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...
