Bruce in Boston Herald

The Boston Herald asked for my best garage saling tips, including “What NOT to buy?” I avoid:
• Cribs and car seats: “Safety requirements change… You don’t want to put your child at risk in anyway.”
• Mattresses: “Mattresses are gross, and (they can have) bedbugs. Icky, icky, icky.”
• Tools with frayed electrical wires: “If it is not in working order and you are not an electrician that can fix it, I wouldn’t buy it.”
• Say no to opened lotions and potions: “I once saw someone selling a half used tube of Preparation-H for a quarter.” Here’s a Garage Sale 101 TIP: Don’t try to pawn off your used toiletries… even if it only took half a tube to cure you.
