What is the best deal you've ever found at a garage sale?
Two weekends ago I got a free lamp! I love it. It is gorgeous and goes right on my table so I can read in the evenings!
I was driving with my G-children one friday morning( 5 years ago) when they ask if we could stop at a yard sale. My G-son saw a really cool rain jacket..for $ .75 he bought it. The lady said someone had given it to her son ( now 32 yrs ) and he NEVER wore it....we got home and went to put it in the washer,when my G-son found a nickel in the pocket..it looked different, so he called a neighbor who collects old coins...the value was $ 2700.00..that started his savings account..since then one of his favorite past times is going through pockets, at goodwill/second hand stores...and garage sales...and the raincoat was passed on to his little sister...
Oh my gosh! That is an amazing story! I love hearing things like that! Good for him.
Did the G-son thank his G-ma properly for stopping lol?
Yes Alastar Packer..he was and still is very appreciative of our relationship..I am extremely close to my G-children..We all live on the same property..and many times are also on the same page !
thanks for asking...

Is it more benefit to have a garage sale or take a tax deduction?I've wondered this. In the past, when in need of cash, I've held garage/yard sales, but donating and taking a tax deduction always helps at tax time. Which do you think is more beneficial?
