OK so we have had our second garage sale and once again we were bothered by early starters. Our first garage sale we had had people sitting out side our house waiting for us to open the gates 2 hrs before the advertised time. The last one ..wait for it, we advertised the garage sale for Saturday at 8am. We were pricing and placing items on tables in the carport on the Friday when the front door bell rang, my husband walked down the driveway and around the front to be greeted by a person wanting to ‘take a peak at the garage sale item” (their words). It was 11.30am in the morning and a day before the sale!! My husband told them, in I am sure a rather cranky voice no we are not prepared or ready yet. When he came back to the carport he told me they had a ute and were obviously going around all the garage sales for Saturday hoping to get lucky. I feel this is so very wrong, as well as being very rude. These type of people are getting all the bargains before normal every day folk even have a chance at times. Lastly because our local paper only comes out Monday to Friday we only have this option if we want to put a ad in the garage sale section of the paper and this means it appears in the paper on the Friday morning thus these darn pest early birds. My conclusion some people are just plain rude and inconsiderate.
