Orlando Garage Sales

You met my friends Lauren and Alex a few weeks ago in the Food Truck Bazaar video.  Later this month, they're moving to New York City.  Since they'll be living in a 325 square foot apartment (!) with two dogs (!!!), they need your help getting rid of everything.

Come by their house this Saturday, August 6th, starting at 8:00am for their garage sale.  "Everything must go," including indoor and outdoor furniture, clothes, kitchenware, DVDs, sporting goods, a grill, and a lawnmower.  Also, there will be free giveaways.

General Tips for Successful Yard Saling
  • Plan your visits in advance.  Use sites that show the location of the sale and what will be sold, such as Craigslist Garage & Moving Sales,, or YardSaleSearch.
  • Come early.  Most yard sales start at 7:00 or 8:00am, and the best items go first.
  • Bring cash.  Obviously, most (if not all) garage sellers don't accept cards.  People are also wary of accepting checks.
  • Don't be afraid to haggle.  My strategy is to give a reason for lowering the price.  For example, you could say "This CD has a scratch on it, I'll give you half" or "Can I get these four books for the price of three?"
