Do you go to yardsales?

I used to when my boys were young, then I would turn around and have them myself when they outgrew the items! I have not had a yardsale in YEARS.......I filled my covered porch with just stuff from our attic! Now I am going room to room, clearing out. While I dont have little clothes or baby gear, I do have lots and lots of other neat stuff that brought back so many memories for me as I went through it. So, do you go to yard sales and what is it you look for when you go?

I love yardsales. I look for clothes, household items. Knick knacks to decorate with. Just about everything.

I love yard sales and am excited that it's getting warm enough here to start seeing some again. I am a mom of 4 and I look for everything from clothing for my whole family to books, household items, toys and sports equipment. Really anything I need that saves me money from having to buy it new.

I do... My bestie has a kids resale store so I go yardsaling with her on weekends to find stuff for the store and spread the word about the store. So mostly kid stuff and kid clothes.

Yea I had a yard sale once it....

Looking at all my shit in my yard was fun at first, until everyone started arriving and jewing me down on my prices...like, really?  A $1.00 is too much for a new electric can opener that is still in the box, you only wanna pay $0.50?  After a while I was irritated with society and having to haggle over chump changeand spray painted a piece of plywood that said, "FREE SHIT" and propped it up against a tree and went inside only to come out and tell people that they couldn't have the tables all my shit was sitting on and then had to spray paint, "tables not included" underneath "FREE SHIT".

I LOVE yard sales :).

I look for anything really.. but vinyl records are my favorite find. Last summer I found a Simon & Garfunkel album, James Taylor, Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy, and a Doobie Brothers album... in a crate marked "All Records 0.50 each"... AWESOME :D.

I have a really pretty wine decanter, and some cool bookends too. I also like to get play clothes for spring/summer/fall for my daughter there.

I'm a bargain hunter..and love to find hidden treasures and what not.. so I loove flea markets, yard sales, and thrift shops :).

We usually have two yard sales a year. We will be having our first ys in a few months. We rarely go to yard sales.
