Yard Sale - nachher

Yard Sale - nachher
Der letzte Rest wurde nachmittags in den Schatten geräumt. Am Ende hatten wir alles verkauft, was wir unbedingt loswerden wollten - es hat sich wieder mal gelohnt!

It's nice that you get a little money - we can't do it here; we give it away. Something really nice can perhaps be sold to someone we know. Otherwise, they won't officially buy anything second-hand unless they're poor. I also have a feeling that one would lose prestige in selling, or it could even be considered unethical; Muslims are supposed to give alms regularly, and giving things away you don't need anymore is one way.
OK, we can sell a used car. :)

Yes, youe eplanation makes sense!

Here, garage sales (or in this case yard sales) are a way of life: People just *love* to shop them, they go look for sales every weekend! And it's always true: One men's trash is another man's treasure! :-)

The leftovers are usually packed in a box and given to charity - except a few items which I keep for the next sale.

I know, I once bought a lovely coat in a garage near Portland, Or for next to no money. It's a good way of saving money.

In Denmark, they sell via a certain kind of newspapers in which the ads are free for non-businesses, or now via the net, I suppose. The only things I've ever sold were books, though, and that was to a store.

In Germany we have once sold many items to a fleamarket vendor, when my parents had to give up a huge house to move into a small apartment. Too bad one cannot have garage sales there, as many people just don't know what to do with their accumulated junk!

Ich staune wie oft ihr so einen Verkauf macht!
Ich kann mich immer nur sehr, sehr schwer trennen…

Zweimal im Jahr, Fruehjahr und Herbst. Oefter ist nicht gut, weil dann die Leute schon immer wissen, was alles da ist - und wenn man nichts Neues hat, kommen sie dann auch gar nicht mehr bis hier rauf.

Trennen kann ich mich auch nicht so leicht, aber wenn das Zeug absolut nicht mehr passt, oder doppelt vorhanden ist, mache ich ganz gerne so eine Yard Sale. Man staunt immer wieder, was die Leute so alles gebrauchen koennen! ;-)
