Every year, at the end of May, a large (wealthier) area of town puts on a neighbourhood-wide 'garage sale'. And I'm not talking just a few houses here and there, no, we are talking full on selling, every corner, every parking lot, every drive-way within a 10x10 block radius.
This year marks the 25th anniversary, so I'm excited to see what's in store. Speaking of stores, even they participate in the sale, bringing their baked goods outside and offering up freshly brewed coffee. Last year I went for the first time and it was mayhem-but totally worth it. I walked away with a few CD's, a couple clutches, some napkin rings and more... for less than $20. Awesome.
On Saturday, I am meeting my sister at (cringe) 6:45am to get a head start on the day. Since the garage sale starts at 8am, and parking is horrendous, she's ensuring we are there with plenty of time to spare. You know what they say, one person's trash is another person's treasure!
