What is a tag sale you might ask!
People in the States do that usually on Saturdays and Sundays. As most live in houses they take out into their gardens items they don't need and sell them very very cheap.Sometimes whole neighbourhoos organize tag sales..And they advertise them in the local newspapers.
Other names for tag sales are : yard sales, garage sales, estate sales, car boot sales although each is a bit different. I would say what I went to were tag sales and/or yard sales.
Using second hand things is very popular in the States. People buy clothes, appliances, books, toys, everything second hand! I adore that!
Reduce, reuse, recycle!
So we started from a nearby house. The owner's grandmother had died and what he had inherited from her was the contents of her little beach shop. So he was selling new things but very cheap.
Anyway at this tag sale we bought a snorkeling mask (one for hubby and one for me for 10 dollars, that's about 7.50 euros for both).
There were so many beach related things but as I said before they weren't things I couldn't find in Greece.
What I did buy was this set of fishermen's glass floats. These are very popular among sea glassers especially if you find them at a beach but I loved those. And they were only three dollars.But it was one big heavy thing that I was afraid might break during the trip back to Greece. It arrived safely though!
They didn't have too many things out.
And some children's readers for school.
