What is it?
A garage sale is typically the sale of someone’s unwanted household items. Usually held in the garage or a driveway, a garage sale is a way for homeowner’s to purge items they no longer need. A slight variation on the garage sale is a yard sale… where someone has so much stuff to sell, it spills over into their yards and front lawns.
What should I expect?
Expect to find unwanted kitchen utensils, children’s clothing, toys, sports gear, and kitchen goods. Sometimes homeowners get rid of furniture, but don’t expect to find a ton at a garage sale. Garage sales can be very unpredictable, and you can find some really great treasures if you dig deep and sort through everything.
How do I get the best deals?
Most garage sales are held on the weekends, and you’ll often see neighborhood signs directing you where to go. One of the best parts about thrifting is the negotiating. More than likely the homeowner just wants to get rid of anything you’re interested in…so make an offer and see what happens! It never hurts to ask “is that the best you can do?” Put your negotiation skills to the test and try to get the best deal possible!
