Holiday Shopping Made Easy

Posted on August 17, 2016 at 10:27 AM by Shelly Richardson

This is a great time of year to host your own garage sale – or head out to attend others’. It’s finally cooling off, and so it’s much more comfortable to be outdoors shopping. With the holidays coming, garage sales are a good place to look for gifts for family and friends. There are items for all ages from babies to seniors. I have found the most unique gifts for people that I would never find in a store.

Some are funny and others are useful. I concentrate on what the person likes and might find interesting – whether it is sports, hobbies, or just a surprise gift! "Where did you find that," they ask. Should I tell them, Macy's or I got that at a garage sale? A nice thing about going to garage sales when I travel to other states and countries is the number of amazing gifts I find that I simply wouldn't find anywhere else, and the items are a fraction of the cost compared with tourist gift shops or department stores. Everybody wins! Happy shopping and happy Thanksgiving!
