How to shop garage sales like a pro

It’s our thriftversary! We take a walk down thrifty lane in honor of our 10th thriftisode and share lessons learned, the meaning behind our podcast name, and which host basically thinks she’s Beyonce.

Also, ‘tis the season for outdoor sales and we’ve got bargain fever. We kick off garage sale season with a round of Bargain Glossary 101 and school each other on the basic terms every beginner and seasoned treasure hunter should know. Then, Shannon shares her best tips from parking to haggling to help us navigate garage and yard sales like pros.
