Posts Tagged ‘reasons to go to yard sales’

I am so excited for yard sale season to begin. It is only a few weeks away now, and I am already imagining the bargains I will find.  Yard sales bring the same fun to me that some people get from going to the mall.

Why shop at yard sales (in case you are not a yard sale addict like myself)?

1. You save money. Seriously. You can’t beat beautiful artwork for $2 a picture, a $2 coffee-table book (with gorgeous portraits), lots of name-brand clothing for children for next-to-nothing (see picture below of my daughter in a Lucky shirt and Janie and Jack skirt). I bought this outfit for $1.00  at a yard sale last year!

2. It is a way of “recycling”. If you are big on “reusing, renewing, and recycling”, you ought to be shopping at yard sales. You are purchasing items that many sellers would otherwise throw away!

3. It is fun. . .like treasure hunting. Yes, some yard sales are really only junk, but some have fabulous treasures to be discovered.

Anyway, those are just a few of the reasons you ought to try yard-sale shopping. You just never know what is waiting at the yard sale for you to discover. I will be posting some of my own yard sale finds each week throughout the yard sale season! Hope you join me.
