Estate sale, yard sale, garage sale

Recommended Posts

Anyone else fuck with these?

 

Hit up a couple estate sales in the last few months. Only thing I've picked up is a some super dope glazed wine glasses for this chick I'm seeing.

 

Seen a bunch of rad furniture but theyve been asking way too much.

 

Haven't done a yard or garage sale in a bit. Usually a good spot to grab some decent tools on the cheap tho.

 

 

I tend to look for art, tools, knives, fishing shit, random weird shit, and ALWAYS go thru all the vinyl just in case....

The past couple summers I've worked on the weekends so I haven't had the chance in a long time.

 

 

This summer I have Sundays off so I am definitely going to some farm/barn sales.

I dig em. Check the estatesales.net site and then when you go to sales get on the email list. Everything goes to fifty percent off after noon the last day of the sale so if you see something you want that you think no one else will snap up then hold out and come back.

 

The very beginning and the very end are the most interesting times, funny to see the pros doing there thing like resellers and all that. Funny to think of people making a living being like music resellers.

 

Garage sales are totally different than estate sales but are worth while as well.

 

I am super picky about what I will get, do not want to end up with too much crap.

I've been meaning to go to some sales on the weekends, but I always end up spending it sleeping off Friday night.

Getting into auctions is some other shit, I have known some people that have made serious money doing that. As in that is all they do and they have families and house payments and shit type money.

 

I dropped by a estate sale today but the poster of a rabbi blessing a bunch of rockets for some act of military aggression by the Israeli state was enough to make me walk out the door.

Jorts! Hahaha

 

$26.00 for sellers

$1.50 for buyers

 

Usually make the $26 back in like the first 30 mins. It's at a drive-in theatre so you just kinda find a spot an lay your shit out. Some people bring tables.

where i live in the city it gets poppin around later spring time with garage sales, i try to hit up as many as possible. going through junk is cool. estate sales are good too because you can occasionally find old rifles or ammo.
