This is the season of “yard sales” and so many of us enjoy just looking and seeing what’s out there. Maybe you collect certain items or maybe you just look for great bargains or nostalgic items of yesterday. Some people find home decor and some look for entertainment items or sporting goods.

I wanted to put together my list of the most popular items, in my opinion, are usually available here in Ocean County when you are out and about checking out yard sales. The things we look for when we pull up to a good yard sale in our neighborhoods. Something to keep in mind is, someone else’s item they do not want, may just be what YOU were looking for and at a fraction of the cost of going to a new retail store.

Here are a few of the items I think are big sellers at yard sales……

  • Household Items (decor,kitchen,furniture)
  • Clothes
  • Tools
  • Sporting Goods
  • Collectibles
  • Holiday Items

One thing I always look at are golf clubs lol when I see a yard sale with golf clubs out….I’ll take a look. You never know what you might find, more often then not I won’t make a find, but I have and that’s always fun ⛳️

Tools are another popular item, they are expensive and when you find a tool you need and like, you can save a bunch. Once again I won’t always find a tool at a yard sale, but when you do it’s usually a score!

I will say that when I go to a yard sale I won’t always buy something. I won’t buy just to buy, if I don’t need it ….. I won’t but it. To me buying stuff you do not need just because it’s cheap is “junk collecting” so I stay away from that. So each trip out it’s “let’s see what’s out there” and some days you see stuff and other times I’ll come home empty handed. Last trip out this past weekend it was a “no find” weekend for me, we’ll see what happens next time.
