  • In my area, they have them Fri and Sat. When I lived in PA, they started on Thursdays! I never really look for anything specific, but I will have an idea of what I want (clothes or toys for DS, stuff for the house)

  • We have the most fantastic yard sales. Virginia Beac. Some Friday, but mostly Saturday morning. I have ideas what I am looking for, but I am afraid I am open to a good deal.

  • OMG yes!! I just went yesterday and found a 1920s bed, bicycle trailer, shelving for my DDs room, shelf liners, toys, books....this particular sale is an annual subdivision sale. My girlfriend and I take off work to go to this!!!!! The main days out here are usually Thursday (I don't understand why that is...). Saturdays would seem more logical because most people are off work on the weekends.

  • I think they're fun....never really go looking for anything in particular---usually just a time killer for me, but I enjoy it nevertheless!

  • I will occasionally go to a yard sale. I've learned to be extremely careful and picky with whatever I buy. And I have to be looking for specific items before I even stop.

  • I love yard sales. Which reminds me, the library is having one today, thanks for posting this. And I remember PA when they were on Sundays too. I'm in FL now and Friday and Saturday are the days, but you better get there before 10 or their closed, you're lucky if they are still open later.

  • I wouldn't say I love them, but I do like them. Usually I'm looking for clothes for my kids, but I'll look at other stuff to see if there's anything to add to my collection (glass stuff) or kitchen gadgets, or whatever. There are no set days here, people can have them when they want.
