I have watched shows on television about people making money on second hand items, or bidding furniture in a real estate sale. I really think there is money on other peoples junk specially if you have the artistic mind or creative ideas, you can pretty much transform an old bed frame and refinish it to give it a new face or rustic lamps can turn into something that look antique with little sanding and varnishing. I am fund of fixing stuffs so this ideas really interests me. So during summer, yard sale and garage sale is a frequent weekend task and then go to farmers market after. I have also sold some of our items that is not usable anymore or grown out clothes or even electronics that we just recently upgraded. Next time you have nothing to do for a summer weekend, try going yard sale.
