    have only been to maybe 3 or 4 yard/garage sales in my life but have had 3 of them in the last 3 years, last one in April. NEVER again will I do that……..didn’t make all that much money and was a HUGE hassle. Good luck Ellie.

    There are those that are born with the rummage gene, it can also be cultivated. Most of it is location, sales in better neighborhoods do better thus why my sister, me, and mom all take our stuff to my aunts and help there. Many hands make it easier plus you just sit around all day joking. About 2 hrs from the end it becomes a bag sale and wala it’s gone.

    yard sales can be expensive…. you have to buy them 3 feet at a time…

    I agree with you. If I can’t sell it, I’d rather donate it. Having to deal with people who want to haggle over 75 cents is not worth my time.
    I know there are people who love them and find good deals, but I just don’t have the time or energy to drive all over the place to pore over people’s stuff.

    I agree with you. i’d whack the item I’m selling with a hammer and toss it in the trash can at my table if someone wants to be a ‘Haggle Pest’!

    A, now deceased, friend of mine and I would troll the yard sales on Friday and resell the stuff on Saturday at the Flea Market. She learned her stuff in Atlanta and we hardly ever had leftover stuff that had to be carted back home.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    The great Johnston yard sale was an epic event. Everyone in Lynn Lake knew that Ruth had squirreled away some fine stuff and looked forward to seeing what would be up for grabs. Tables had to be borrowed from the church next door. It took us two days to price everything and set it out on display. As luck would have it, the event took place on the day of the high school graduation. Students in their best duds crowded around the tables, trying to score a deal ahead of the old guys.

    My mother, now deceased, would do that with a good friend and on her own. Fix it up then sell the items for a profit.

    My daughter used to bond with her oldest daughter (who was, like, eight or nine) by driving around to yard sales on Fridays. Now the whole house looks like a yard sale . . .
