Have you ever been to a garage sale? A garage sale is a great way to reduce2 clutter3 around your house while making some extra money.

Garage sales are very popular in the U.S. especially in the spring and summer time. A garage sale is when people get items4 that they no longer want and put them out for sale. Most of the time those items are used items, but sometimes theyre new items, too. Sometimes neighbors will get together and have a joint5 garage sale. That way they have a lot more items to offer to the buyers and it makes the sale more attractive6 to buyers. Sometimes whole neighborhoods will get together to have a sale. That way everyone in the neighborhood will have their garage sale on the same day as everyone else and there are more sales so its more attractive to buyers. Usually the items at a garage sale are in the garage and on the driveway. Sometimes theyre displayed just on the yard of a home and in that case the sale is often called a yard sale. Well, lets take a look at this garage sale, see what we can find.

There are books, pet equipment, baskets and dishes. Theres clothing, baby toys, school things, shoes, bedding, and pictures. Here are some items from another garage sale. Theres a chair, a few tables, some dishes, and some lamps. Each garage sale is different, so if you see a sign, stop by. You may see something you really like.

The prices at garage sales are usually really reasonable7. Sometimes you can even bargain8 but not always. The next time you see a garage sale sign, maybe you can stop by and get a great buy.

On the first Thursday in August, there is the worlds longest yard sale. Truly an American event, the Worlds longest yard sale takes place along Highway 127 near Jamestown, Tennessee. Part flea9 market, part fair, the yard sale has thousands of sellers, even more buyers, and lasts for four days.

你去過车库大甩卖吗?车库大甩卖是一个减少你房子里外的杂物,同时赚一些额外的钱的好方法。

车库大甩卖在美国,尤其是在春季和夏季的时候,十分流行。车库大甩卖是指人们把不再需要的东西拿出来出售。大多数情况下,这些东西都是用过的东西,但有时也有新的东西。有时邻居们会聚在一起,合办车库大甩卖。这样,他们就有更多东西可以卖给买家,这会使大甩卖更吸引买家。有时整个街区都会聚在一起卖东西。这样,小区里的每个人都会和其他人在同一天进行车库大甩卖,会有更多的东西出售,因此对买家来说更具吸引力。通常车库大甩卖的物品都摆在车库和车道上。有时,东西仅只摆在一家的院子里,这种情况下的甩卖通常被称为庭院甩卖会。好吧,让我们看看这场车库大甩卖里能找到什么。

有书、宠物用品、篮子、盘子,有服装、婴儿玩具、学校用品、鞋子、床上用品及照片。这是另一个车库大甩卖的一些东西。有一把椅子,几张桌子,一些盘子和一些台灯。每个车库大甩卖都不一样,所以如果你看到一个标志,就过来看看吧。你可能会看到一些你真的喜欢的东西。

车库大甩卖的价格通常很合理。有时你甚至可以讨价还价,但并不总是这样。下次你看到一个车库大甩卖的标牌,也许你就可以顺道买到点好东西。

而在八月的第一个星期四有世界上最长的庭院甩卖会。这是个真正的美国活动,这个世界上最长的庭院甩卖会在127号公路附近的田纳西州詹姆斯敦进行,一部分是跳蚤市场,一部分是集市,有成千上万的卖家,还有更多的买家,活动会持续四天。
