One of the best parts of summer is being able to go to garage sales. Although there were not as many garage sales this summer due to the pandemic, we were still able to find some great bargains! These are some of our garage sale finds of 2020.

#1 — Group of 30 Postcards
We found this group of 30 postcards for $1.00 at a yard sale. Most of them are “real photo” postcards. These postcards look like actual photographs, and they are very popular (especially black and white or sepia ones).
We are planning to sell these postcards on eBay.
#2 — Vintage Mall Madness Game
This game was in a pile of free items at a neighborhood sale. It was missing one piece, which I will buy on eBay to make the game complete.
The vintage Mall Madness game is worth a lot of money if it is complete, but it is hard to sell otherwise.
#3 — Trailblazer Books
I found these Christian books for 25¢ each. They are very hard to find. Even though I could sell them for quite a bit, I am giving them to someone I know that will enjoy them.
#4 — Masterpiece Board Game
Masterpiece is an art auction game that is a lot of fun. It is no longer being made, so it is hard to find. Because of this, it sells well on eBay. I picked this one up for $2.00.
#5 — Shel Silverstein Poetry Books
These hardcover poetry books are harder to find even though they are quite popular. So, I was excited to pay 25¢ for these.
#6 — Rokenbok
Rokenbok is a building robotic toy. It has vehicles, blocks, and plastic balls that you can set up like a construction site. Everything moves with a remote control, so it is a lot of fun.
It is a very expensive toy to buy new. It’s one of those toys that comes in sets where you have to buy more sets in order to do more things.
We found four large boxes plus some pieces that didn’t fit in boxes. It only cost us $5.00 for all of it. It was in good condition, and would have been close to $500 brand new. Even though it is worth money, we gave it to a family member that wanted it.
#7 — Robotic R2-D2
At a recent sale, we found a robotic voice-command R2-D2 for only $1.00. It came with its manual as well.
I didn’t know if he would work since he was priced so low, but he did! He dances, plays music, shakes his head, plus a lot more. We are keeping him for sure!
#8 — Mr. Potato Head
I found a large bag of Mr. Potato Head potatoes and pieces at one sale. They were only $2.00 and had some really cool pieces.
#9 — TV Cabinet
We were in need of a TV cabinet for our TV and video games. At the garage sale, they had this cabinet for $15.00, but we were happy to get it for $10.00!
#10 — Vintage Star Trek Games
We found both of these games for $3.00 each at a recent sale. They were both complete and in good condition.
#11 — R. L. Stine Books
Fear Street books by R.L. Stine are favorites among young adults who like scary stories. These are from the 1990s and were 50¢ each.
