thats a good find.

i cant do yard sales anymore. people around here are getting too proud of there stuff and want almost full price for stuff that they used the crap out of. i was walking away from too many people so i had to stop. it was a waste of my time.

Unfortunately it's the next one after that point where you will find the reasonable person and the goldmine... ;) Ebay has changed a lot of garage sales into retail outlets..giving people an inflated value of what things go for.Most people look for the mint item on ebay to price their second hand junk for.. :evil:
Craigs sales have gone really flat...I get a lot of emails from "I want it" people that don't respond with a phone call after I email them back.Some items as many as ten people have responded..no return calls.The "I want it"s seem to be "I do but really can't afford it"s. :mrgreen:
