This book was a joy to read. The photographs are beautiful and plentiful. The text is interspersed with personal stories of amazing finds and histories of popular garage sale collectibles. Barbie is featured, so is the legend of the person who found an original Declaration of Independance in a frame he bought for a pittance. The author's passion for garage saling is infectious as it shines through the expressive and engaging writing style. He also has a blog, by the way. Check it out.
For the newbie saler or seller, there are sections of tips on what to bring (dolar bills!), how to haggle, when to go in order to catch the great finds (early!) or strike an amazing bargain (late!), how to make your sale attractive (have some big pieces).
I'm not a garage saler myself, although this book made me want to be. I could see decorating and furnishing my house with the things one can only find in someone else's yard. I do love a bargain.
