Garage sales and finding good deals are in my blood – my grandpa was an auctioneer, my parents are rabid when it comes to garage sales and I’ve always enjoyed finding nifty things for less than I would buy them in a store.
One of the unfortunate things about working on weekend mornings is that I’ve lost about two years worth of Saturday morning garage sales, but I’m still remembering the good times – the wooden quilt rack that I bought for $2, the purple juice glasses that I found at a garage sale in my old college town, the huge painting that I found for $1 that looked like a Tuscan landscape and made it through three moves with me until it was retired.
Not that everything I have found has been useless “stuff.” I’ve been lucky a few times for clothing and cooking stuff. I also like buying books when I’m at garage sales.
So what about the rest of you? What’s your best garage sale finds?
