Have you been caught up in the latest craze?
I know that I have been.
What is it you ask?
Garage sales on-line!
When I was looking to find the grandson a crib for our house someone suggested to me, why not check Facebook.
They have all kinds of garge sale sites.
Sure enough I found a couple of local sites to join.
Within days little man had his own crib!
That went so well I thought I would try my hand at selling something.
When I needed to sell my vintage stove I listed it that morning.
By that night I already had a buyer picking it up!
Since then I have bought a few more things on my favorite garage sale site.
I bought this family tree to sit in the entry way at the new house even before the deal was done.
I knew it would look wonderful there.
A few weeks ago I purchased a lovely, glass topped table for the sun room.
$20.00 dollars, what a deal!
The little mans high chair was also bought on a FB garage sale site.
My latest find was some curtains for the bedroom.
I needed something fast before we moved in.
A few clicks of the mouse and I was off to pick them up.
The lady even through in a brand new donut maker!
Total price, $8.00!
A few of the FB sites have quite a few rules to follow.
But mainly when you see an item you are interested in, you just type interested next to the picture. Then send them a personal message.
Most people message you right back to except your offer and arrange a time to pick up your item.
The first time I went to meet someone, we arranged to meet in the parking lot of a out of business restaurant.
We both laughed because it felt like some kind of shady deal exchanging money for a package.
Its fun to browse the sites even if I am not buying!
Last night I got out my donut maker to give it a try.
We had a bunch of bite sized donuts in no time!
(This is my pinterest site for a variety of great donut recipes!)
I have recently turned a few of my other friends onto these great garage sale sites.
I just hope they don't find the big bargain before I do!
Do you FB garage sale too?
