Friday Five: Garage Sale!

Welcome to your irregularly scheduled Fifth Friday Five, hosted by will smama and Songbird!
Since will smama is preparing for a joint garage sale with her parents, and Songbird's church had a Yard and Plant Sale last Saturday, we have five enormously important questions we hope you will answer:

1) Are you a garage saler?
2) If so, are you an immediate buyer or a risk taker who comes back later when prices are lower?
3) Seriously, if you're not a garage saler, you are probably not going to want to play this one.
(That wasn't really #3.)
3) This is the real #3: What's the best treasure you've found at a yard or garage sale?
4)If you've done one yourself, at church or at home, was it worth the effort?
5) Can you bring yourself to haggle?
BONUS: For the true aficionado: Please discuss the impact of Ebay, Craig's List, Freecycle, etc... on the church or home yard/garage sale.

Let us know in comments if you play. And for even more visits to your blog, post a direct link in your comment using the following formulation:
<a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>
For a complete how-to, click here.

We'll check in with all who play, as soon as we finish pricing the only slightly chipped malicious moments figurine of Peter on the upside down cross.... 'cause that's worth putting in statuette form, isn't it?

  23. tamyboOur church garage sales have done several things to the good...
    people purge their not wanted anymore
    people get good stuff for good prices
    everyone works together
    it really doesn't take six months to prepare and sort etc.
    your stuff is another's treasure...

    Two quicki stories. During one of the sales near Christmas a man and his young son were walking out and the little boy said, Oh Daddy I am so completely excited about this great gift. Thankyou so much, He says you'll get this at Christmas.... Oh I know I know... thanks dad. One lady working at the sale got up and said we should have given him that train. Oh no I said...he was so proud to have afforded it for his child.

    The first one there was a back lighted black tiger for the top of the TV. You know the kind with the bulb in the middle of the tiger= I thought of buying it as a joke. it was the FIRST thing to be sold.

  24. I sure wish someone would have some garage sales scheduled for 7-10 PM instead of the early morning kind.

    I played here.
