When you live in New York City, as I do, it is very rare that you find a genuine bargain. Sure, there are “Stoop Sales,” whereby apartment dwellers shed their excess belongings to passerbys. Sometimes you can find great deals at these cement based sales. But it is hard to top what is known in the suburbs as the “Yard Sale.”
The Yard Sale (or Garage Sale as some like to call it, as the seller is selling the virtually the entire contents of their garage) is a place to find childhood treasures and maybe a little something nice for yourself.
Check out my finds at these Texas suburb based Yard Sales:
3. Mother Goose Board Books
Price: 25 cents a piece- $1.00 for the set.
Reason For Purchase: I noticed a smaller sale that wasn’t getting as much attention. The seller- little boy- looked disheartened about the lack of customer traffic coming his way. So I bought something to make him feel better.
Why pay full price at a retail store when you uncover treasures at a Yard Sale!
