  1. Awesome! You certainly come away from your yard sales with so many treasures! How do you find these yard sales? Do you just happen to come across them, or do you look for ads in the paper or what?

  2. Seriously, I just drive around looking for signs. I never check the paper, or even Craigslist- just look for signs and follow the arrows. There are a few church sales in the summer that I look forward to each year; church sales are almost always fabulous. But by and large, I just look for signs.
