  • I do like garage sales but I don't shop too much at them. I dont really have time on the weekends to do that. I get really good deals at the outlet mall that is less than 3 miles from my home so it works out better for me to do that. I get new clothes at name brand stores for yard sale prices sometimes plus I have my coupons. It just works out better for me to shop there during the week.

  • Sometimes.

    I found a cute little wooden chair that was painted gold. I stripped the paint and varnished it. The color of the wood is beautiful.

  • yes, i bought a primitive shelf for a 1.00. I also love the idea that a friend of mine has. She has a furniture consignment store called Second Home. I live in the country now and have downsized and think her idea is great for me. We split 50/50 which is better than nothing.

  • I LOVE yard sales! I will shop and shop and shop! My garage saling buddy lives too far away to go with me anymore, so I'm hoping to find someone really soon to make it more fun...
