The idea of trolling the newspaper for yard sales and having to drive around to find what you're looking for seems so archaic these days. Don't get me wrong, I still do it from time to time, but only when I'm in a mood to do the driving and okay with coming home empty handed. I remember the days of circling the listings in the paper and figuring out the best ways to get from house to house, or better yet, driving around looking for signs like this.

Of course it helps that I have one of these now.
Still, I stopped by 3 sales this weekend and there was nothing but JUNK masquerading as "antiques". The thrill of a yard sale can be great, but nothing can beat searching for what you specifically need (and find it). Thank God I found these on Craigslist last week.
