[quote]Travel down US Highway 127 from Michigan to Alabama and meet the people at the world’s longest yard sale [/quote] One thing I have heard about this sale, it is now mostly professional antique dealers, and very few true garage sales. Dealers come from all over the country to set up shop fo...

This is my diamond in the rough find today. I paid $5, it is worth about $150. [img]http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r198/theantiquetiger/75208E41-E8B6-454A-9AA4-267CBD3CFFFC.jpg[/img]...

re: Garage Sale Strategy - theantiquetiger
As a major garage/estate sale customer, I do not negotiate at all unless I am buying bulk (how much for everything?). I am treasure hunting, so most of the things I buy less then $10 (worth $100+). Unlike what some have said here, Baton Rouge has some GREAT garage sales, just know where to go. ...

[quote]I would do this if i knew anything about the value of what I'm looking at. However, I'm not a junk expert. [/quote] Start out like I did 12 years ago, pick a couple areas (mine were toys, LSU, and strange items). Stick to these, bring $20 with you and never pay more than $5 for an item....

re: Garage sale junkies - what was your haul today? - theantiquetiger
Going back to middle class and poor neighborhoods, I have been to a few. I cannot stand when someone looks up and prints an Ebay page and tapes it to an item, trying to show what they are worth. It is usually an active item, not a closed auction, and they grab the highest auction they can find. ...

[quote]I'm not criticizing you. I despise ignorance. It's just that I find it hard to believe they didn't know what it was. In fact, with all of the antiques and collectible shows on tv I'm surprised you'd find anything of value underpriced. Those who would be stupid and underprice it don't seem lik...

re: Garage sale junkies - what was your haul today? - theantiquetiger
One of my main basic rules for garage selling: I only go to rich and/or old neighborhoods. Rich people buy good stuff and sell it cheap when they have a garage sale, just wanting to get rid of it. Middle class and the poor people have junk and think its worth more then it actually is worth. The...

re: Garage sale junkies - what was your haul today? - theantiquetiger
I sell my stuff on ebay. I've been doing it for over 10 years now. I am 46 years old. Estate sales are better than garage sales (which I do go to), but garage sales are a little more fun. I am guessing the people didn't know it was gold or they wouldn't haveput a $1 tag on it. The r...

[quote]eah, the people desecrating the flag are definitely douche bags, but they have every right to be douche bags so long as it doesn't interfere with other peoples' rights to be douche bags. [/quote] You need a permit to desecrate the flag, so what the natives were doing was illegal as well....

Garage sale junkies - what was your haul today? - theantiquetiger
I did quite well. For $10 total, I got a 14k gold necklace (4 grams), mohagany glass top jewelry box from Bombay Co, very old Coca-Cola tin bottle thermometer (sans the thermometer), and an old cast iron horse head hitching post topper from New Orleans. Yesterday, I got a near mint Vanson le...

re: "Fast Food Workers: You Don’t Deserve $15 an Hour to Flip Burgers and That’s OK" - theantiquetiger
Fast food workers should get $15-$20 an hour!!! But... Get rid of the waste! Make the counter user friendly, with touch screen service the customer can use. Automate many of the things in the back, getting rid of many positions. A McD's could be run by three people, drive thru, cook, an...
