Los Angeles garage sales not only provide a way to earn extra money in a couple of days, but these pop-up boutiques at people’s homes across town also enable neighbors to catch up as they offer bargains some never dreamed possible.
Since The City of Angels includes a large transient population from the show business arena, shoppers in the Southland often land amazing purchases that include everything from designer shoes worn by models on the move to garments made by high-end designers. Meanwhile, life-long residents often part with cherished antiques, like tools from career carpenters, simply because their collection has become too large to maintain.
1. Research: Be sure you are allowed to hold a garage sale in your neighborhood on the chosen day. Some areas of Los Angeles not only limit the number of times you can sell goods out of your house within one year, but also prohibit selling on certain days of the week.
