After this weekend, yard sales, garage sales and barn sales will begin here. I’ve been checking out other states at a site were they cover all the big sales, all over the states. There are mega sales, that sometimes the whole town participates in. My daughters and sons are sale pros. I taught them. Actually, until they got into the high teens, they weren’t into these sales at all and would sit in the truck or just stay home if I went anywhere, since they knew I would stop at yard and garage sales if there were any, on the way to were I was going.
It is really cool now that the kids are grown. They jump at the chance to even drive me, since I can’t drive because of a back injury. Or at least I don’t like to, since it is painful. So, I have drivers! The great part is that when we go out of state, we plan on renting a hotel room and stay there while we garage sale. It’s a way to spend time with my kids and have fun at the sales. We actually check out online sites that tell what the certain sales have to offer and try to get there before they are even open, unless stated otherwise. That way we can most all the time, what we are looking for, from checking on the internet sites.
What I love are the actions that we go to. I wish I had a bigger truck on those occasions. Of course we check it out what they have in the ones that are in various states. I’ve gotten some butt kicking antiques that way. Sometimes we find whole bedroom suits that we need to store and get a few trucks together to make the trip back to get what we bought.
I always get really excited when warmer weather comes and then when the kids get out of school, or can get a break, we spend lots of fun and also get all kinds of treasures. I’m glad that they now like sales. Who doesn’t with the economy as it is and money matters being what they are. It really helps out a great deal going to these sales and auctions. It’s like a hobby for the family to do together.
