365. Find a masterpiece at a garage sale
Updated February 10, 2009
My friend Dare is a master at finding bargains at garage sales, swap meets, and thrift shops. I think it’s one of those talents that either you have or you don’t – the talent to spot a diamond in the rough. I’ve never been much good at it. I get sidetracked and buy things I think are a good deal only to see them as junk a few months later and donate them to a thrift shop all over again.
But maybe if I practice, and spend enough time looking, I’ll get lucky.
