Do you have/shop yard sales?

  • I love looking at yard sales for books. I've found some great old books and lots of good movies too. My mother, sisters, and I all had a huge yard sale at my mother's house and we sold a bunch of stuff and I made a couple hundred bucks from some of my old books, clothes, horse supplies, and various other crap. I even made some homemade jewelry and baked goods...any excuse to bake.

  • I have not shopped at one for a long time. Not that I don't want to but we usually sleep late on weekends lol. We are changing that though so we may go back to doing that again! I need a new mixer so maybe I will have luck finding one that was barely used!

  • I prefer to go to them. But when you go to too many you have to have one.

  • Yes. I absolutely love them--- shopping, I mean. I hate having one myself though. In our area, we have a 100 mile yard sale over Memorial Day Weekend. Last year I was on the route. I set up in my garage, which was located just off the route in a neighborhood. It went over so well because everyone liked stopping and parking off the main route! I made over $400.00 that weekend. All I had was some left over stuff from my husband's business.

  • I love to shop at them, that is when I feel like getting up early enough to do so! I have had 3 at my house the last couple of years, and hopefully will have one this fall when it cools down some. I have done ok, I use the money for Christmas, so that keeps me motivated to sell more. It is a lot of work, but it is worth it in the end!! Good luck with yours!!
