My wife and i started going to yard-sales in the late 70's. We didn't know what they were about.We fell in love with them. Through out the years we have gotten alot of good stuff.We have bought new and used stuff cheap. I have bought cars and trucks at them, cheap. Our kids grew-up going to them and still enjoy them. There has been so many things we've bought . During yard-sale season we hardly ever go to department stores. We all get good clothes and shoes, new sometimes. We get stuff for our trucks and our house. I collect pre-70's car stuff and get it cheap at some sales. My family is always finding something. You never know what you will find. Then there is the free boxes, they're always fun to go through.
