Do you like to go to garage sales or flea markets?

This weekend is the big community garage sale and it is one of the biggest in the state. People start roaming town at day break looking for that bargain. They come from all over lower Michigan.

  • Yes, actually just got back from 17 GoldenBooks for 5$, stuff a bag of clothes for 5$, cherub picture with beautiful frame 3$, and 3 gorgeous dresses (fancy) for $1.50. There's also the "World's Longest Yard Sale"(google it) that starts near Cincinnati, and goes south for about 5-600 miles into Georgia. It's usually in August. First saw it on the Travel Channel, then did it the next year. Got some AWESOME deals!!

  • Every year in a town near mine, they have a city wide yard sale. there are tons of them all over the place. We go every year. It's fun and you find lots of neat stuff.

  • I love the flea market. We have a large one about 45 minutes away, located in Hartville, Ohio - is just awesome. Besides being out in the country, the farmer's market section is fabulous, can't get much fresher! They have permanent shoppes indoors and acres of outdoor spaces. The quality of the stuff is fantastic. This coming weekend it is huge and I so wish I could go!
