The yard sale scene, or where do you go to get your sale items?

Do you hit the yard sales in search of items to put up for sale on ebay? Do you buy things online that you find when it's a good deal to resell? Do you just sell things from around the house??

I can't stand looking through yard sales for one or two good items amid a mound of junk. I need some ideas, too, so maybe some of your experiences will help me out.

I dont usually do yard sales. I have them and all but not for stuff for ebay. I haven't sold much other than goofy auctions so far anyhow. Everything else was clothes and baby stuff I had.

Thrift stores are a great place to find some good older items. I get alot of my stuff from Godwill which usually has saturdays at 50% off

Well, right know I have about 10 extra books that I have, I get them from the Library for about 25 cents. I know I can get more out of them.

By now everyone on here knows IM WEIRD! BUt I like looking through junk at yard sales! SOmetimes that is where i get my things. Once i bought a tommy hifiguer sp? shirt at a yard sale for 3 bucks and resold it on ebay for 17! The lady LOVED it!

We have a discount (junk) store here called Walls. Sometimes I find stuff there marked down good and still have tags on it and i can resell. Last thing i resold from there were some boys wrangler jeans.......nwt........

I love yard sales, especially on the last day they are going to be open, by that time people are ready to give the stuff away. I usually buy furniture and add my own creative touch and turn around and resell it for 2 or 3x what I paid for it!
