It's National Garage Sale Day

two purses I purchased at a garage sale

I get a natural high off finding great deals and bargains.  Garage sales are one of my favorite places to find clothes, home decor, books and much more.  I hate paying high prices for anything, so garage sales are my thang!

I cannot imagine paying an exorbitant amount of money on something just for the name. My kids wear brand name clothing, but I always get them on sale, at a yard sale, or even as hand-me-downs from others.

I don't get to browse garage sales as often as I'd like but still go to my fair share.  Another person's junk may be my treasure!

I can't go without mentioning that it's also National Left-Handers Day!  I'm a leftie myself.  Southpaws run pretty prevalent in my family.

Are you a leftie?  Do you enjoy going to garage sales?  What are some interesting or unique things you've purchased at a garage sale?

I absolutely LOVE garage sales! Seriously, once the weekend comes around and you're driving around seeing all those colorful signs on the corners of each street, I just get downright giddy. Plus garage sales, thrift stores, Estate sales and the like are all the places I get inventory for my jewelry stores; nothing like buying a piece for $0.25 and selling it for $50+!

I never knew there was a
It's National Garage Sale Day. When my kids were young we went to a lot of Garage sales and found some fun toys for them.

This makes me miss my Grandma. Going to garage sales was what we did when we visited them.

The purses are cute.

I love going to garage sales, but around here they start on Thursday. By the time Saturday rolls around they have been picked over. It's like I'd have to take off work just to go to garage sales.

Darn, I missed Leftie sister and I are lefties. As far as we know, we are the only ones in our family.
