Garage Sale Gourmet: Streetwise Shopping for Fun, Profit, and Home Improvement
Garage sales can be a fun, creative, and often a less expensive way for people to redecorate a home while developing a sense of personal style and a feeling of accomplishment from their creations. This handy guide takes readers step by step through the process of creating a nice, stylish dwelling on a garage sale budget. The first section of the guide shows how it's done, covering topics such as taking a home inventory, finding the best sales, planning time-saving shopping days, and negotiating better deals. Describing what it takes to turn dust into gold, experienced garage salers show how to repair and refurbish slightly forlorn treasures and hold a more profitable garage sale themselves. For those interested in the big score, specific tips are provided for finding and researching collectibles. An informative directory provides addresses, URLs, phone numbers, book publishers, and other garage sale resources.
