If you’re thinking about going to a garage or estate sale and the weather forecast isn’t looking too good, you should definitely still go. Think about it; if you’re considering not going, chances are pretty good that other buyers are thinking about passing it up as well. Many people prefer to avoid the hassle of traveling in poor weather, so if you tough it out and show up, you won’t have to battle the crowds. This means more treasures for you!
Along the same lines, if you see a garage or estate sale way off the beaten path, you should definitely be going the extra mile to get there. These remote areas are great places to go for wonderful finds. If you’re considering staying at home, remember that the harder it is to get there, the less likely your competition is to show up, and this means you get first (and only) dibs!
