Garage sales way down this year
I found this year was very dismal for my garage sale. I made half as much as last year. My neighbor has sales also and I was talking to him and he said that it wasn't that they were stopping and not buying - they just aren't stopping. And it isn't for lack of traffic by our homes. Also, the ones that do stop seem to be very fussy - they want thing to be in "like new" condition and for prices that you practically have to pay them to take it. Some people might believe the economy has a lot to do with it, but you'd think if that were the case, people would be even more likely to be looking for bargains at garage sales. Yet the Wal-Mart parking lot is full of cars of people shopping at retail prices. I wanted to get some feedback from others as to why suddenly people have stopped going to tag sales.
