What do you usually buy at yard sales?
Are you looking for specific items, decoration items for home/yard, children clothes toys, just looking to see what is for sale?
When I go to yard sales, I go seeking a profit. I want to find an item I can purchase and then immediately sell in some other market like eBay or Craigslist for a hefty profit. At yard sales, homeowners often do not realize what treasures they may have or how much they are worth. Some key items to look for are old items that have notable brand names on them. For instance, an old singer sewing machine might return you $200-$300 on eBay and could easily be sold for $20 at a yard sale. As you research items over time, you will develop a knack for finding items that can easily be resold for higher profits. Hope this helps.
Love this question--love yard sales! I'm always scouting around for craft supplies, but I love finding some unexpected treasure, too.
Before I had my complete collection (1981-2011--yay!), my favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning was to seek out old volumes of Christmas With Southern Living. Every time I would find a volume I didn't have, I would jump up and down and whoop it up. I know they thought I was crazy, but I didn't care!
I love yard sale and I pretty much buy anything I can use, that's really cheap. I have bought fifty cent jeans, dishes but my favorite items to buy from yard sales, thrift stores etc. is books. I love to read and am usually reading several books at any given time so when I find them cheap, I load up. After I read them I pass them along to others.
