Modern Day Crusaders

A few centuries ago it was the quest for the Holy Grail, but today it's the "Holy Sale" as garage sale addicts everywhere search for gold in the form of lost or unidentified treasures. They do this with a fervor not seen since since the real crusade.
Great discoveries are announced regularly on the "Antique Road Show," where proud crusaders hold up tiny baskets and other finds worth hundreds of dollars. Then they announce to the multitudes, " I paid 50 cents for this basket so my little dog Sophie would have a place to sleep."
If you don't think stories like this are affecting the garage sale landscape, you haven't been to a garage sale recently. On a typical Saturday morning, hoards of garage sale addicts are charging down a street near you! Cars line streets as the crusaders pursue the impossible dream. But the dream is possible after all; they saw it on The Antique Road Show! That lost Winslow Homer, that Shaker chair, that Tiffany master piece is out there, and they are going to find it!
It seems that garage sales aren't just for newly weds furnishing their first apartment anymore. Today, a cross section of humanity jostles their way to the tables at a typical sale. Just look at the cars lining the road. Mercedes and other luxury cars are sandwiched in between the working class autos,trucks and clunkers. What is going on here? The answer is simple. There are treasures to discover, and there is something more.
Garage sales are now respectable!
