Theres no better reason to wake up early on a weekend than the chance to stroll through the neighborhood swap meet/marketplace and hunt for treasures. Knock-off designer sunglasses? Check. Sparkly new cover for your iPhone? Check. Aisle after glorious aisle holds stuff you never knew you needed. Plus, its always amusing to observe the regularsthose sporting sweat pants while dragging crap-filled carts from booth to booth. But people-watching isnt the only delight these giant garage sales have to offerthey also serve beer. So pop on your sweat pants, get your drink on and pick up a few goodies of your own. Perhaps a giant plastic tiki for the front yard?
