Garage saling is in my genes! My mom is an expert saler and so are my aunties. I went out to a few neighborhood sales every saturday morning while I was in Alaska. Only for an hour or so each week but after 3 weekends I found the perfect vintage espresso maker. This shiny thing cost me only a 1.50$ and now we don't have to lug our Bialetti with us when we visit.
I passed up the old trunk below because I was too lazy to ask the price. I regret that now because it would have been the perfect dress-up trunk for the stash of 0.25$ princess dresses I snagged for my niece the following weekend.Garage sales are the best right when they open. The good stuff goes fast. I am not an experienced garage saler in San Diego but my guess that La Jolla (my own neighborhood) is a great place to start. See this weekend's craigslist for your closest treasure trove.
