Last year I went kind of late and figured the good stuff was gone. This year I went earlier and there was no good stuff. It was like one or two mediocre neighborhood garage sales combined, pretty much just junk and trinkets. I saw nothing worth hauling from home and likely hauling back home when it did not sell. I can't criticize it if people go for the socialization aspect and it was a nice day.

People apparently paid a fee to register a table. They have curbside pick-up in Plymouth, but tags must be purchased and attached to the items to be picked up. So maybe folks thought this would save buying those tags.

Salvation Army, Good Will, Purple Heart-just throwing out idea for the residents of Plymouth.

Yes, this is usually what's left after the family has picked all the meat off the bones.

I went right by this Saturday rather than waste my time. There were so many other garage sales in the area. I just went from sign to sign. I found a ProForm 775s stationary bike for $5 that had barely been used. Now that's a healthy deal. Day before I found a 21" HP 2105F LCD monitor for $20.

These people at the cultural center pay for the privilege of carrying all that stuff there and back home. I suspect it's the flea market socializing aspect that attracts them and the few that attend.
