My daughter talked me into having a garage sale this Fall. Or course, it has rained every weekend since I've been ready. The exquisite items for sale are accumulating on my front porch, waiting for a sunny Saturday.
I usually hit a couple sales every Friday or Saturday in my area which is often a waste of gas more than anything. Here is my haul for 45 minutes worth of driving yesterday. A bag of ribbon for crafting and package wrapping. A dog book for my daughter, and a Hollywood issue of AD that I didn't already own. That's it. I think when advertising garage sales, sellers should be required to label them truthfully such as:
The Nowhere To Park Sale
The Baby Sale
The Nothing Here Made Before 1992 Sale
The I Didn't Bother To Clean Anything Sale
The I Didn't Bother To Price Anything Sale
The I Have Less Stuff Than You Just Donated To Amvets Sale
The Overpriced Clothing Sale
Hmm.. did I miss any? Feel free to add to my list.
I have found some nice things at sales over the years. Here are garage sale purchases from Summer's past that I currently use as decor. The bottom leather looking thing is an old horse bridle.
Have a nice day and here's to no rain next Saturday!
