Publisher Comments:

Garage Sale, Yard Sale, Tag Sale, Rummage Sale, Estate Sale, Barn Sale... they all mean one thing––BARGAINS––and America loves them. It's estimated that on any given Saturday, hundreds of thousands nationwide attend garage sales and flea markets to pick through other people's stuff.

Garage Sale America explores this cultural phenomenon of grass roots retailing, showcasing the people, places, and things of this modern– day gold rush, and reveals to readers the secrets to incorporating cheap but chic decorating into their lives. It's filled with funny and poignant stories of buyers and sellers, as well as a wealth of detailed photographs pf sales across America. Pull quotes, sidebars filled with anecdotes and fun facts, tips on bargaining and decorating tips make this an instant American treasure.

About the Author

Bruce Littlefield is a New York-based designer, writer, and restaurateur. Hailed as a "design and lifestyle guru" by Publisher's Weekly, he is the author of the recently published Garage Sale America and Airstream Living, and co-writer of the best-selling Use What You've Got and Other Business Lessons I learned from My Mom with real-estate magnate Barbara Corcoran. Originally from the south, decorating for Christmas is as natural as breathing to Bruce, and each December finds him attempting over-the-top mischief. His personal collection of Christmas treasures can be found displayed proudly every hol iday season in a 1940s Catskills' farmhouse, which he renovated and decorated himself.
