" Garage Sale here we come..." - 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

"Guest-blogger Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst N.Y. and has worked in the ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years...We take a break from the controversy of GMO's and a Racially based court trial in Hawai'i to guest-blogger Judith Whitehead's take on garage sales! Enjoy Inspiration Sunday! ;D)

Sorry  folks, the garage is not for sale!  ;D)

Garage Sale here we come

It's that time again this year for our neighborhood garage sale; time to sort through our treasures that we never looked at all year, time to get rid of those clothes that last fit in the 1990's, and time to chat with the neighbors.  

We usually have at least 20 homes participating and begin our A.M. at 7AM  with early birds sorting through our tables for the best choices.  It's a great way to empty out the garage, basement and closets with "stuff" that one will never miss and make a few extra bucks.  

The only thing that would put a damper on our fun will be bad weather for which we have been very lucky over the years. Usually August is a safe time to unload things and sprawl over the driveway all the items that need to be removed from the house.

Whatever does not get sold will be bagged up and taken to the Good Will and NOT back into the house; it's the rule ...whatever makes it to the driveway doesn't return. 

So here's to bargain hunters everywhere...let them land in our neighborhood and leave with handfuls of items.

Aloha Judith,
I enjoyed your story. I love garage sales, thrift shops, and the likes. In Australia thrift shops are called Op Shops. And, discount stores are called Reject Stores.

On my Facebook, I have posted some photos of new colleaguess/friends from Life Line Op Shop. Life Line is Australia's suicide and crisis response program.

May every garage sale be a successful one.

When I was a consumer I used to frequent garage sales, now all i want to do is downsize everything... garage sales really are the epitome of bargain shopping.
