Garage sales, yard sales, rummage sales, whatever you call them, they are now in season here in the Great White North.
Some people love garage sales, and spend every summer weekend cruising the back alleys. Others find the idea of buying strangers’ used items slightly odd, if not outright weird. Me, I’m somewhere in the middle; I love a bargain, but I am not infrequently surprised that people think there is any chance of selling three-decades-old bottle openers, extension cords with two out of three prongs missing, or dolls with one arm, no hair, and marker all over their faces. Still, the fun for me is in the hunt for a bargain.
If you are new to the world of garage sale-ing, here are some tips to keep in mind as you cruise for deals.
