I got heaps from garage sales today. I got an electric food steamer, brand new electric can opener, seven cushions with price tags on, a dinosaur egg night light, a bedside lamp, various wall sayings, a pair of mini football boots, a pair of pyjamas with monkeys on with price tags on, and more. Most of these items were only $1.00 each except for the pyjamas. Ohh and a brand new Harry Potter wall picture for my downs syndrome cousin, a tigger for the kids wall, a door closer.

  • I love it when you get something great with the price tag on and it fits perfect and you pay a few dollars!



  • We enjoy browsing at Paddys etc and you are lucky to get those because with garage sales normally they start early and all the good items are gone by afternoon . I don’t buy clothes there as last time I bought a simple shirt and it fell apart within days and skip the toys and electricals at markets because there is no warranty even though they say yes . We have bought plants in the past and all have been good .



  • Gosh, how successful are you at garage sales?! I like to check out local ones and often find some treasures. There’s also so some rubbish, but they’re worth checking out



  • love them! so many bargins. even op shop is good



  • I love garage sales! I have picked up brand new furniture, clothing, gifts ready to go that people didn’t want….just about everything! Social media plays a big part. My local area and surrounds have a facebook group that is a constant garage sale. People upload items and then someone purchases the item and comes and picks it up. It is run by admin with rules and not only have I picked up items but I have sold lots too! Great fun and might be worth looking into to see if there is one set up in your area!



  • What a great haul – well done! I love garage sales, op shops and markets – always on the look out for a bargain – you never know what you’ll find! “One man’s junk, is another man’s treasure” so they say, and they’re right!



  • Yes! I love, love, love them! Garage sales, markets and op shops :) I’ve found some real treasures over the years – though admittedly, my best finds have been in op shops. Antique silver spoons, genuine Chanel and Pucci, you name it – I’ve probably found it. So, yep – I’m definitely a fan.



  • WOW you really did have some wonderful finds. I also love garage sales but hubby is swaying more to swap meets, we have not long come back from Ballarat, two really long days picking at the swap and a week away but fun. Today we went to our local markets, not very much there but I did get some free range eggs for $2 a doz..a real bargain. Hubby collects Coca Cola.



  • ThEre should be more garage sales over the long weekend



  • I love markets and garage sales and holding them myself . I have recently been cleaning out my house and i have given so much to op shops there is heaps of new things that i can sell so I am putting them in a big pile for a market stall. hoping to make some extra needed money !!



  • I love garage sales! I generally get things that I probably don’t need but what a bargain!!



  • I have been to a lot of baby markets. If you have a girl and are looking for clothes up to about a size 2/3 then they are amazing. However if you have a boy they are more difficult to find good stuff. It is as always a hit or a miss as it depends on what the vendors are selling on the day.



  • I don’t go to many as I’m trying to sell lots of things myself and KNOW I’ll just but more LOL but they can be great value! I really need to have one here!



  • I’ve only been to a few. I find they are a hit and miss, but it’s so good when you can pick some stuff up in great condition especially items you can no longer get in stores.



  • It is fun shopping and getting bargains! I love it too!
