The concept of the garage sale is nothing new, but making them more popular than ever are the “trash to treasure” shows on the Home and Garden Network and Pinterest. Never before have we had so much fun turning somebody’s old row boat into a coffee table or a weathered screen door into a work of art.
Community Yard Sales can be a lot of fun. Please make sure to park in appropriate places and be mindful when driving through these areas on sale days watching for children, shoppers loaded down with purchases and bargain hunters exiting their vehicles.
