What do you think the greatest American pastime is? Baseball, baking pies, reading The Thrifty Nickel? I think that garage sales should be included in the conversation of best pastimes. Opening up your garage door to display your wares and collectables for the world to peruse and hopefully exchange money for is a great thing. Waking up early Saturday morning and hitting all the garage sales in town before your neighbors get all the good stuff is a sport in itself.
Like the mystical voice told Kevin Costner in ‘Field of Dreams’ “If you build it, he will come”. This may apply to Baseball fields, but not garage sales. You can’t just post a few signs on street poles the day before your garage sale and expect Joe Moneybags to waltz up your driveway and buy your vintage record collection.
This is why; the only smart way to host a successful garage sale is to place an ad with The Thrifty Nickel. Every week over 100,000 people across the Permian Basin feast their eyeballs upon the pages of The Thrifty Nickel. So go ahead and place an ad in our paper so that your next garage sale will be a lucrative endeavor for you.
