What do you look for at garage sales? What do you avoid? Compiled by Tim Jagielo, media editor Aug 13, 2019 0 Facebook Twitter SMS Email 1 of 5 “I always look for power tools. I’m looking for stuff I can get great deals on. I don’t buy cheap-cheap stuff that won’t last.” Lorne Knauft, Hartland Township “I look for toys, or something for the pool and the sand box. I avoid electronics because I don’t know if they’ll work.” Mary Burgner, Deerfield Township “The only thing I ever wanted at a garage sale was a toy. I would avoid something broken or moldy.” James Mesarosh, Fenton “I look for furniture. It sounds bad but I won’t buy clothes at a garage sale.” Tracy Clark, Fenton “I look for good deals. I got an antique rocking chair for $10. It was 80 years old. I try to avoid junky or dirty items.” Danielle Scarberry, Whitmore Lake Facebook Twitter SMS Email Print Save Facebook Twitter SMS Email Print Save × Post a comment as Guest Post As Emoticons [smile] [beam] [wink] [sad] [cool] [innocent] [rolleyes] [whistling] [lol] [huh] [tongue] [love] [sleeping] [yawn] [unsure] [angry] [blink] [crying] [ohmy] [scared] [sleep] [sneaky] [tongue_smile] [thumbdown] [thumbup] [censored] [happybirthday] [ban] [spam] [offtopic] [batman] [ninja] [pirate] [alien] Comment Text Cancel Post comment × Your comment has been submitted.
