Early spring is the best time for a yard sale, which means people will be looking to sell items they don’t want or need. If you enjoy visiting yard sales, here are five items you should purchase if you find them.
If you’re an artist or photographer who enjoys displaying your work, picture frames can be expensive. Keep an eye out for frames at yard sales. You might find the perfect frame for your picture at a price well below online or in store options. This is also a great option if your children enjoy drawing. Framing their work will make them very happy!
You don’t need a complete Lego set to have fun, all you need is a bunch of pieces. These plastic bricks have been popular for years and are often found at yard sales. If you happen to see a big crate full of Legos, buy it. Newer Lego sets are very pricey, while at yard sales you’re paying a lot less for the same amount of fun!
There is usually a table full of baskets at a yard sale. If you spot some, buy a bunch because baskets can be quite versatile. They can organize or decorate a room, carry snacks for a picnic, or hold a great gift. Finding baskets at yard sales is very common, and they are an inexpensive item to give your home a fun new look.
It might be a little early to think about Halloween costumes, but yard sales are the perfect spot to buy some. If the costumes in stores are too expensive, and you know you won’t have time to make any, find used costumes for your children, or yourself. You’ll be spending less and have a perfectly good costume come October.
Yard sales can become a trip back in time if you find a board game you haven’t played since you were a child. They can make great gifts or something fun to bring to a game night. It’s also never a bad thing to give that cell phone game a rest and bring your friends and family together with a board game.
