Trash to Treasure

There's this unique thrill that happens when you find a really good deal. Or when you find something you've been searching for ages. Maybe it's not something sold in stores anymore. Maybe a collectible, or something that reminds you of simpler times. Yard sales are amazing treasure hunting excursions that often result in those very finds.

Everyone knows someone who is a dedicated "yard sailor" that takes weekend mornings throughout the summer to tour yard sales. They'll make a list of addresses out of the newspaper or Facebook groups and come home with arms full of goodies. That takes a lot of time. And kudos for those people, but if you're like me and less ambitious, there's something incredibly intriguing about a one-stop (-ish) treasure hunt.
