Garage Sales

I was quite to surprised to see garage sales in our village here in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Normally, Filipinos are pack rats but I guess this is a sign that our culture is westernizing. My fond memories of garage sales were that of cheap power tools, baby clothes, men's clothing and other unsual stuff. I even remember buying my bathroom faucet from one. Like any other enterprise, you need to BARGAIN...BARGAIN...BARGAIN. You also need to be early or others may get the choice items you need. Garage sales are a good practice to let people use what you don't. Its a great way of reducing the usage of unnecessary natural resources.
