Today is Yard Sale Day. By which I mean we’re the ones having a yard sale — not the ones making the rounds. We have all sorts of stuff for sale: old pots, dishes, toys, vases, a rug — you get the picture. All the things we don’t need anymore, but that are still in good shape, still useful — a great value for someone else.
It reminded me of what terrific deals you can get on ski gear at this sort of thing — especially for kids, who outgrow stuff in nothing flat. Even though it’s not this year’s equipment, does it really matter if they’re just learning? And once in a while, you may even run into an adult who’s getting rid of perfectly good equipment (God only knows why). That’s great for you, too.
Anyway, yard sales can be a fabulous way to get ski stuff for cheap. Check ’em out!
Reminder: Coming in September — TheSkiDiva.com, an internet forum especially for women skiers (see August 2 blog entry). If you’d like to know when it’s up and running, send me an email and I’ll keep you posted!
