I love going to them! Sometimes you can find pretty unique items and really great bargains! What are your thoughts on this?

I love garage sales but I can never get out of bed earlier enough, all the good stuff is gone by the time I get there although I have been lucky to pick up a few things...

Yup as they always say the early bird catches the worm, I do get irritated with myself if I find out that all the good stuff has been sold in the morning, and I missed them just because I couldnt wake up early.

I certainly do if they have something I am interested in and like. I have gotten movies on dvd for much cheaper than any other place I can think of. There is always garage sales going on around me, no matter what time of the year.

Yeah garage sales almost always have some things that you have always wanted to buy and better still, you can now buy them cheaper than you would have gotten them from the store.

What kind of things do you buy? I buy clothes for me and my kids, books, and some figurines. Welcome to myLot.

Love thrift stores for the same reasons. I used to like flea markets years ago but a lot of them have vendors selling cheap brand new stuff. It's just not as interesting.

I like to look for toys and games at garage sales to use in my classroom. It saves me a lot of money. Buying things for the classroom can get expensive, so this saves a lot of money!

we rarely have garage sales in malaysia. the closest would be flea markets where ppl sells their own products; e.g. clothes, custom jewelery, home deco, antic stuffs...etc...its cool coz u get to buy unique stuffs which u know won't be used by anyone else but you since it is made individually.

I think somethings shouldn't be bought at a garage sale. Sometimes I buy things there, but it has been awhile since I've done that.

I love garage sales, they are fun and you can find some awesome deals there. I will buy almost anything at one, as long as it look clean and in good condition and the price is right.

I love going to garage sales, especially when I'm looking for particular items. I've had great luck when I was looking for a 10-speed when I was a teen. I got a really great one that some people had bought for their son and he never used it. I bought if for like $15 and it was worth $300 or more at the time. My mom has run across some bone china tea cups once for less than a quarter a piece. excellent condition. I think you just need to know what you're looking for.

I love garage sales. Mom and I go all the time. I love to buy the kids clothes. They mostly look new and the kids don't mind. I find alot of things, for the household too. Just have to be careful not to carry home to much to clutter house.

I love going to garage sales. Sometimes you can find really good things cheap. The saying goes "One mans junk is another mans treasure". I get alot of my kids clothes at garage sales too.
