Do you go to a lot of garage sales?
Is there anything specific you look for at garage sales?
Have you ever held a garage sale of your own?
If so, do you have a hard time pricing things?

Do you go to a lot of garage sales? Not really. I'm a little weirded out sometimes by looking at other peoples' stuff. (I'm weird).
Is there anything specific you look for at garage sales? Typically if I am out garage sale-ing, I'll have something specific in mind...usually something for my DS (big outdoor toys, etc)
Have you ever held a garage sale of your own? Yes.
If so, do you have a hard time pricing things? Kind of. Sometimes I just want to get rid of things and price it low in hopes it will go...other times I'm sentimental about certain items and it's harder!

Do you go to a lot of garage sales? Not many. The local ones aren't that good and it's too much of a drive to go to other towns. One of the downfalls of living in the boone docks I guess.
Is there anything specific you look for at garage sales? I look for lightly worn and well taken care of (if not new) children's clothes. We use a lot of the clothes from garage sales and consignment shops for play clothes here on the farm and use the stuff bought from the store more for school and town clothes. I am also keeping an eye out for 2 twin headboards, a desk, a nightstand, a queen size headboard and a stereo stand this summer.
Have you ever held a garage sale of your own? My mom, aunt, and I all went in and had a garage sale a couple years ago. I would say I did pretty good....before paying for gas to get it all back to where my parents live 3 hours away. I NEED to have a garage sale to get rid of a bunch of baby clothes.
If so, do you have a hard time pricing things? I have a terrible time pricing things! I don't want to price things so cheap that I leave feeling like I could have gotten more out of the stuff, but don't want to price it so high that no one wants it.
