Why is it that everytime a garage sale/yard sale is posted it's always on the same day they are having it. Why dont anyone post like a week in advance to give us a heads up. I think Ive only seen a few that posted in advance. Just thought I would throw that out there for the ones that are like me that have to plan for it.  :-)

The only reason I said this is because I love going to them but everytime I see one on here I want to go to, it's the same day or the day before. lol .....

Have you checked out http://www.kingwoodyardsales.com/m_search.

I think the reason that most people don't put signs up is because of HOA rules.

Yes, If you put your signs up in advance they will be taken down....  I actually like that rule..   If I see a sign that looks old I assume someone didnt take it down from a prev garage sale.
 
However when the neighborhoods have the neighborhood wide garage sign they will post signs at the entrances a weeek in advance so watch for those..

@brearae, it is a huge sale they do every year.  People get up and are waiting in line to get in.

We use to have a big one like this back in NC every Fall.  It was at the state fair grounds, and it was a true arts and crafts, as well as a yard sale, antique sale they put on every Sat in the Fall.  It was a blast and we got the best deals there.  

@silly123, in VA I use to hit the yard sales every Friday and Sat.  They Tuesday paper would advertise the upcoming garage sales.  I'd map out my route, and get up and head out on Friday am.   I got my son the big Tonka trucks, metal ones, for $2 each.  They looked brand new.

I got a solid maple dresser for $35.00.  I got stuff all the time.  The Julia Child cookbook that retails for $50.00 I paid a  quarter for.  It was brand new.

I love yard sales.  It seems here that some folks are bit unrealistic about what they can get for their stuff.  Just because you put the word vintage in the description doesn't make that  old  used and not well cared for object worth more money.  And it is  a yard sale, you want top dollar don't put it out at a yard sale.

@WJo:

They advertised on the other chat forum. It was also way over priced supposedly.
