I keep telling garage sale hosts to stop saying this but they keep doing it. So keep your ears open, as I hear it often, and it’s usually the first thing people say. “There isn’t much left. We were ransacked yesterday!” or any version of. I’m not sure if owners want to brag about their success or they’re embarrassed that there isn’t much left to look at but what they end up doing is saying that all the items that they thought we valuable, are gone. It’s pirate time! Now is your chance to dig and find the treasures buried at the bottom of boxes. It’s worth the time to dig. I have found some of the most amazing items in the darkest of places. And the best part is, I’ve gotten most of them for next to nothing.
If you want to find buried treasure, you have to dig. But the best time to pull out your shovel, is after you hear the magic words, “We’ve been cleaned out already. You should have been here yesterday”. So get out there and dig for treasure you filthy pirate! haha
Have any tips for me? I would love to hear your advice?
