Sarasota Florida - Annual Garage Sale at Forest Lakes

From Trash to Treasure or "Junk to Jazz up you home", Forest Lakes Country Club residents are out in full force this morning cleaning out their closets and garages.  Furniture, light fixtures, orchids, plants, glassware are among the items I spotted while Snuffy and I strolled the neighborhood early this morning.

Every year I forget or conveniently forget to get my wares on the street.  I always remember on the way to Starbuck's when I see this neighborhood bustling at 6:30 am to make the 8:00 am deadline.  Signs were up everywhere and customers were arriving my 7:00 am.  I opened the trunk of my Jeep Cherokee and filled it to the brim with "trash."  Suddenly I looked inside and thought "my son can use this set of wine glasses, that sauce pan and that fax machine."  Back to the garage went the junk.  I did take some pictures to load on EBAY of some old jewelry.

Then off I went down the street to find a few more treasures.  What can I say -- I love "collecting stuff."

Hi Annette - I used to go to garage sales all the time.  One day I stopped at one, there were no prices on anything.  I asked the young man how much a bunkbed was, he said "I'll go ask my mom".  He came back with "it's not for sale", I asked about another item, same answer.  This went on for a little bit - they really had some nice stuff.  I was getting a little irritated though, and said "why do you have all of this stuff out here if it is not for sale?"  He said "we are just having the carpets cleaned and moved it all out here".
