It’s that time of year – garage sale season! Many people take the time in spring to unburden themselves by selling their accumulated possessions at bargain low prices in order to lighten up their living spaces and wardrobes for the coming year.
Then there are others who enjoy “feathering their nests”. Garage sales, yard sales, tag sales become a most anticipated treasure hunt. Perhaps a list is made to search for specific items at rock bottom prices or maybe the day is left to chance and a gem is discovered that, unbeknownst to the finder, is essential for life and happiness.
I personally love finding the sales with the fresh, homemade, baked goods that are displayed on a card table, next to the person with the cash box. An assortment of cookies packaged in plastic baggies with a twist-tie or delicious bars arrayed on a white paper plate covered with cling wrap. Yum! Sweet nourishment to continue my quest.
So, get the truck or Suburban out of the garage and gassed up. Make space in your trunk and mark your calendars for May 2-5, 2019 to experience the 100-mile Garage Sale “that spans all towns along Lake Pepin” – Minnesota and Wisconsin side. http://www.100milegaragesale.org/
