Summer garage sale

'Tis the season for garage sales in Eagan. Need some clothes, a lamp, a picture, how about an old stroller? See the cashier under the red umbrella to checkout.

  1. How much for the bench under the tree?

  2. It looks very much like there are 3 IKEA lamps to the right. ;-) ???
    Anyway, it is a good idea to have these sales from time to time.
    I sometimes donate to "Fretex" (Salvation Army), and their shops can have some really valuable and interesting stuff.
    Here it is trendy with retro and vintage both for young and old.

  3. I like going to garage sales. My daughter was supposed to have one last weekend, but ended up selling everything she had on Craig's list so she cancelled the garage sale!

  7. I used to go to car boot sales, in the UK (too wet there for garage sales, I suppose). I found a few good things, but never the BIG thing that every museum would fight for. But yeah, looks like a lot of fun!

  9. Hello Leif,

    Garage sales are fun. You can find many things completely useless things, but also a lot of good stuff. I usually go to the Red Cross sales whenever I need new stuff for the kitchen or albums made by long forgotten music stars. It's great fun!

    Have a good weekend!

    Cheers,
    Asta

  10. I like Garage sales a lot. Here, they are just being introduced, and most of them are announced through word-of-mouth or on Facebook.

  11. We had one of these recently...good chance to clean up and earn some pocket money! There certainly looks like there was plenty to look at here.

  12. We dont do yard sales in Greece, people are too proud, it would be considered very embarassing to sell your thing. They'd better throw them away in garbage, which is such a waste...
    Many times I have thought about it, me and people around me have things that we do not want. It would be so usefull.
    I give clothes and cutlery to charity, and other things to the woman who cleans in my work: she is from Georgia and sends it there.

  13. What lemon says applies perfectly to Italy: too easy and practical for our contorted minds...

  16. We really do not do these over here in England, cannot ever recall seeing one. That said I think it is a really good idea. I am moving house at the moment and I have stuff I do not need but feel it is wrong to just throw it away.
