Become A Garage Sale Millionaire!

Have you ever sat around and thought about the origins of certain things? Some items are simple to explain and we know how and when they started, but others don’t seem to have a clear origin. The origin story of your local Thrifty Nickel started over 30 years ago in the Permian Basin and has grown to be the largest free classified newspaper in the United States.

So when was the first ever garage sale? No you think it was a middle-aged fellow cleaning out his garage 100 years ago, when a passerby offered to buy a dusty goblet that caught his eye. While we can’t say for sure, garage sales can offer you valuable items at a discounted rate.
