Editors Note: Please post your garage sale anecdotes below.
Once when my son was about 5, we were at a garage sale both looking around different areas. Suddenly I heard "hey mom, hey mom come look at this, here is something for 100 dollars at a garage sale!" Cute
Recently we were going to have a yard sale fund raiser. I do caricatures as a hobby. So on 4x4 pieces of plywood I painted a picture of a yard; swing set with child swinging, flowers picket fence. With a for sale sign stabbed into the yard. we placed these signs out by the road as the tables were being set up. Before a single customer looked at our stuff a woman pulled up and bought the signs from my husband. Imagine my face as I watched my husband throw the signs in the back of someones pick up, and them drive away. I was even more shocked to see him put in the collection box from his first sale. More than the sale would make all day!
This isn't garage sale humor, but it's funny.
There is a grocery store in town which would give out free items each week with a $25 purchase. My Mom was working there in early April as a product demo lady. A man she knew approached her and asked her, "Do you know what's Freezer Sweet?" She said she didn't know but would find out. She went and asked a shelf stocker, "What's Freezer Sweet?" He didn't know either. So she went back and told the man that the stocker didn't know what Freezer Sweet was either. The man gave her a strange look and said, "I didn't say, 'What's Freezer Sweet'. I said, "What's free this week?" She was so embarrassed she said, "April Fools."
