Happy almost weekend! What are you up to? This Saturday, October 24th in Australia the Garage Sale Trail is on. Which means that there are heaps of Garage Sales on at the same time around the country. I love a good garage sale as you never know what treasures and pre-loved goods you could find. On this day I’m always tied between either hosting a garage sale myself or to do a garage sale crawl. This year I’m hunting and going on the trail and I’ve also made a little something for you to use on the day – a interactive Garage Sale: Hunt, Find, Record zine.
This zine is FREE to download HERE and can be used for any day you decide to go on a garage sale crawl. I always love to note down places to visit be it a op shop or particular cafe on holidays as well as record my findings so I thought this would be helpful to record your day with.
How to make and use the Garage Sale: Hunt, Find, Record Zine
This interactive Garage Sale: Hunt, Find, Record Zine is for jotting down the addresses of garage sales (don’t forget to tick the little box after visiting) and includes space for your to draw or write about your findings.
I was first introduced to garage sales by my dad at a very young age. On weekend mornings I would watch my dad go through the weekly local paper and tick of the Garage Sales that sounded interesting that were listed in the paper. Then dad and I would be off hunting for treasure together. I was always amazed at all the wonderful things that could be found – most of my book collection was from garage sales. I thought they were the best because everything was affordable and you could find many discontinued toys and collectibles. Some of these childhood finds included Goosebumps and pick-a-path books, art & craft supplies, stationery, figurines, Sega and Nintendo games, polly pockets, collector cards, little figurines, VHS movies and music cassette tapes. Even on the days when I didn’t go looking at garage sales with dad he would always bring a surprise home. At Christmas time I also discovered that even Santa liked getting his presents from Garage Sales!
So in celebration and my love for garage sales I hope you enjoy this zine.
