Garage Sales

It’s funny that no one here does garage sales, so popular in the States. Where do poor people buy stuff for their homes?–c’mon, IKEA isn’t that cheap. My wife is doing an apartment sale over the next couple of days (Wienbergersiedlung) and so many people have stopped by to ask what she’s doing. It is a strange concept to our neighbors: putting stuff that you don’t want outside your house and having people come by and give you money to take it away. But it works; we made 67 Euros today.

Where do people go for used bikes, lawn mowers, tools, clothes, furniture in Graz?

    Maybe you should get a space at the flohmarket (Flea Market).. haven’t been but here’s the info:

    Also, if there is something you would like to give away.. I noticed that in Graz, they place the items on top or next to the Recycle Bins. That’s what we did with the 1980’s microwave and 1970’s rotisserie that we found in our home and they were gone in less than a day!

    I hope this helps!
