Whether you call it a garage sale, yard sale or tag sale, the vending of goods in front of one’s home is a summer tradition for many people.
Periodically, people ask what I think about yard sales. The short answer is I think they’re a lot of investment for not a lot of return.
The longer answer is in a previous blog post.
The second Saturday in August is National Garage Sale Day. As the summer comes to an end and garage-sale season wraps up, you might celebrate this Saturday by visiting a few sales. If you do, think before you buy so the stuff doesn’t end up in a pile waiting to be sold at next year’s garage sale.
