I really love garage sales, flee markets and rummage sales. Actually, I love it anytime I can find a great deal for under .50$. This year I managed to drag Zoltan to a bunch of garage sales-- although he was reluctant he loved it just as much as I did. It all began for us when our town had a town wide garage sale at the beginning of the summer. We came home with a car load of toys for Zolie and had only spent $12.00.
I think the other thing that's appealing to me is the chance, even if it's slight, of actually finding a real beauty find-- something that is just so unique and special that it could only be found at the back of someone elses closet.
