My garage sale has been and gone and it was a great success. I've now got room in my cupboars LOL.
We seem to have quite a few sales in our area so we'll be out and about as summer progresses.

Free sofa wrong color

I love garage sales too! and Freecycle. We were blessed with very nice free sofa from a Freecycler, but the flowers in the print clash with everything. I saw some spray paint for upholstery at the big box home store and got to wondering if I could just paint the flowers the color I want. Has anyone tried this?

ajrsmom, it was easier to gs alone when my kids were young, but it was a great teaching time! They still get sticker shock at the mall. I gave them each a small amount of money on gs day, and after buying a few pieces of junk that broke or that they didn't really enjoy, they learned to discern play value and quality construction. Really valuable lessons many adults haven't learned, no?

Yard saling is one of my favorite pastimes. So is going to thrift stores. I have found most of my craft supplies at these kind of places. I am on a monthly income so I keep out $20 and that is all I get to spend a month. I call it my sanity money.

I love yard/garage selling, thrift store, goodwil store, etc....
the othe day I found a darling black pair of cyree with beads at the bottom. When I showed them to my daughter she really did like them.. I've wore them twice and everyone has made remarks on how much they like them.
When I tell them where I got them, they are just shocked. Only paid $4. for them.

My gd's loves going to them too, Fri on the way home taking my oldest gd home she asked can we go garage selling looking. She got 4 cute stuff animals and 1 free doll, she was so happy.

I love yard sales, thrift stores never know what you will find.
