Columbia sales are most likely to be on Saturday and early morning is the best time to go before everything is picked over. Be sure to carry cash, preferably in small denominations. Most people cannot accept debit or credit cards, and many will not take personal checks. If you’re going with a friend, share the ride, since parking near sales is often limited. It's always a good idea to bring your own large totes or shopping bags, since they are often not available.

The yard sale season has peaked and will continue to be active through late summer and fall. Listings will continue to appear through the close of the South Carolina State Fair in October. Get out early for the best selection and enjoy the late-summer weekend!

As always, maximize your style and minimize your spending~
