Yard Sales

I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July, filled with fireworks and food. Since we're all still in a vacation sort of mood (especially with today being a federal holiday) let's talk about one of the key parts of summer: yard sales.

During the summer, yard sales are a great way to kill some time in a creative way, and to stock up on all that stuff you never knew you needed. You can get some simple decorations for your dorm, vintage clothing (wash it before you wear it), especially dishes, all for cheap. Here is an article about what you should and should not get at garage sales.

What awesome finds have you gotten from yard sales? What's the craziest thing you've ever seen for sale at one? And what do you refer to them as anyways? Rumage sales? Garage sales? Post your answers in the comments section.

  1. Like your blog! I call them either yard or garage sales. And I don't normally visit them but a friend and I decided to check a few out a couple months ago and I got surprisingly lucky. I got a box of ipod socks and an ipod arm band, (both apple brand) for $1 each. I had just bought an ipod so it was awesome to get some accessories for so cheap!
