We love garage/yard sales. I like to get books and anything interesting that I see. We also like to buy to sell later on ebay. Around here the sales aren't really very good, but once in awhile we find something good. A few years ago James bought a bronze box at a sale here in town for about 50 cents. We sold it on ebay for around $80. I bought some wood pictures (it was pieces of wood fitted together mosaic style to make pictures of an island scene) for $7 and we sold them for $14. The best yard sales we found were on a trip to Iowa a few years ago. On our way there we found some great ones in Illinois and on the way home we found some in West Virginia.

I love to go to Estate sales - you can pick up some real finds at a very small price.
