Thoughts On Garage Sales

I am in search of a nice but cheap white wood toddler bed for Hannah, and a nice but cheap pack and play to leave in our car for outings now that Hannah sleeps in her nice pack and play at home. So I decided to hit garage sales this weekend. Friday Hannah and I took our walk in my in-laws’ neighborhood where there was supposedly a “neighborhood” sale – of course we only found three actual garage sales. Then this morning I went to a much better neighborhood sale at Crystal Pointe. Crystal from Biblical Womanhood has pointed out some good thoughts on garage-sales and I concur with her assessments, especially on pricing. The piddly three sales in my in-laws’ neighborhood were all monstrously overpriced for what was really just dirty junk. I’m not trying to pay $15 for your stained nasty canvas child-sized Purdue chair, you know what I mean?

Anyway, I only have one other point to add:

Catherine’s Tip About Garage Sales:

Whatever you do, please please PLEASE do not try to sell your skeezy used lingerie at your garage sale!!!!!! I really saw this at one of the sales, y’all, I’m not kidding. Everyone join me for a collective shiver of disgust, and then, on the count of three – one, two three:

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

And that is all I have to say about that.
