Are they an endangered species? Maybe it's demographics in my area, heavily senior and immigrant, but it seems garage/yard sales are few and far between. And those are mostly kids clothes and toys. My town has its annual village wide sale this weekend but the list of participants is pretty short. Has anyone else noticed this? We also had several thrift stores including Savers but they're all gone. Has all the good junque gone to eBay?

 I guess some folks may be going the online route but I also think it's demographics. We have lots of seniors who are probably done with sales, then when they pass or move away the kids hold an estate or moving sale. I am seeing more of those. The hispanics shop in droves and are the ones buying the kid stuff but they don't hold sales. The newest kids on the block are eastern European and I don't think they have caught on to the concept. Like Lab said, the few I've gone to are full of stuff that belongs in a dumpster. I sure don't need any more junque but I'll have to check Goodwill occasionally for fun stuff. And congrats Lab on that great sale. I don't think our church has made that much on a weekend rummage sale. And those are disappearing too.

 Check facebook search for online yardsales in your area.  You can get some great deals on them!

 I think around here a lot of folks wait for the townwide sales and put their stuff out.  Problem for is is noone came to our side of town the first year and we did next to nothing....This year we did a sale 2 weeks before our townwide sale and took in almost 1800 for the weekend 

Way too much kiddie stuff out there. As well as just plain junk or broken stuff....  More and more folks are saying they are an "estate" sale to get "top dollar" for crapo

We usually check craigslist for sales
Thursdays paper (found out neighbors were having a sale that way they dont use the computer)
estatesales.net
and im not sure if its yardsales or garagesales.com or net (once in a while use it)

If its not someone having to get rid of a family members stuff i think they are looking to ebay to sell it there first if they think they have something

Havent heard of the "online" yardsale

 Around here we have several online garage sales.  Maybe they are taking over.
