The annual Oak Meadows neighborhood garage sale didn’t start for another five minutes.
But already, cars lined the street. Bargain-
hunters were milling around, scoping out interesting furniture, unique artwork and useful everyday items such as baby clothes, appliances and stereo equipment.
Some even helped homeowners set out their goods, to get a sneak peak at the deals.
“You get the first look at everything. It’s the thrill of the hunt, just to see if you can find the best deals,” Edinburgh resident Art Briddle said.
When it comes to garage and yard sales, the dusty garbage that one person passes by is a rare treasure to someone else. Summertime is prime season for sales, and every weekend shoppers pick through tables of other people’s belongings to get that one special item.
