Neighborhood Yard Sales
My favorite type of yard-sales are Neighborhood Yard Sales! What is better than going from one yard to the next without having to get in your car? Nothing. If there is one in my area, you better believe I am going to do everything I can to get to it.
I do not recommend taking a back pack, large bag or two-wheel cart like you sometimes see people do at flea markets, because as soon as someone see you with that at their yard sale, they are going to “assume’ you are purchasing items to resell, and what does that mean? Well, when you ask them the price, they make it more expensive because they typically do not want to sell their items to you for cheap because they know you are going to make money off of it elsewhere. I know that sounds bad, but it is the truth and that is how most people seem to work, based off my experience. .
If you are in the “zone” going from one yard-sale to the next and you see a piece of furniture or a large item that you aren’t able to carry, but you want to purchase it, go ahead and pay the sellers (if they seem trustworthy) and then go back and get the piece once you’re done yard-sale’ing. Of course, make sure this is okay with the seller’s before you purchase. This way you can continue shopping without having to stop, go back and get your car, load up the piece and then re-park your car. You have lost valuable time doing this!
