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?
Occassionally. It’s harder now without a car.
2) If so, are you an immediate buyer or a risk taker who comes back later when prices are lower?
I usually buy immediately. I don’t like taking the chance it won’t be there later.
3) What’s the best treasure you’ve found at a yard or garage sale?
End tables: I really needed them at the time.
4)If you’ve done one yourself, at church or at home, was it worth the effort?
Yes, I’ve done one, and no it was not worth the effort.
5) Can you bring yourself to haggle?
If I like the item enough.
BONUS: For the true aficionado: Please discuss the impact of Ebay, Craig’s List, Freecycle, etc… on the church or home yard/garage sale.
I love Craig’s List. When I moved from Kansas City, I listed the furniture I wanted to sell, and it was gone in short order.
