RIP – World’s Oldest Yard Saler

As we end the year, I received sad news. My dear friend, Wini Williams, passed peacefully in her sleep at the age of 96. Wini was featured in my book Garage Sale America as the “World’s Oldest Garage Saler” and was seen with me on several of my Today show garage sale adventures. (That’s […]

Fun on Good Afternoon America

I had a ball… a Bocce ball… on Good Afternoon America. John Elliott & Lara Spencer are doing an amazing job of putting fun back in the afternoon, and I must say that Lara and I were separated at birth. We both are addicted to garage sale shopping. She’ll brake for ’em. I’ll camp […]

Gossip! – Bruce on GAA

Hi there! Hope your summer is going swimmingly. Mine is hot hot hot. (No, I’m not talking about 50 Shades of Grey!) I wanted to give you a little gossip: I’m going to be sporadic in my musings during July while I finish my new book AND make some TV appearances. So, look for […]

Saling 101 – Curating treasures

Every Saturday morning of the summer you’ll find me tooling about town with a cup of coffee and pocketful of ones to see what I might find at garage sales. One of the greatest joys of “saling” is putting the pieces of the puzzle together–collecting and curating–to give something a look. At left is […]

Life 101 – Happy memories

I adore lovely reminders of the past. Growing up in South Carolina, my grandmother always had hydrangea in her yard, and at 90 (Happy birthday, Mom!), she still does. I’ve planted it strategically around Edgewater Farm, so I’m reminded of her. I also think of her when I bend down to pick up a […]

Hello ladies! (And gents.) Grab yourself a copy of this week’s Woman’s World magazine and catch some of my advice on how to make money selling the stuff out of your attics, basements and closets. (Yes, you know the stuff you haven’t used since Bush, Sr. was president.) Did you know that 1 out […]

Giveaways – What is this?

For me, garage saling is a treasure hunt, an educational adventure, and the happiest of all star-spangled exchanges. “I want what you don’t want, but how much don’t you want it for?” I always say there’s something neighborly about being invited into someone’s yard and encouraged to paw through their stuff. And allowed to […]

Garage Sale 101 – Dress it down

Garage Sale Season is officially open and I was out this weekend hunting. Want to remind you treasure hunters that you want to dress not to impress! It’s Garage Sale 101: Don’t step out in expensive shoes or wear designer label clothing. Dressing high-end is a billboard that says: “Charge me more. I have […]

Gardening – Potting geraniums

Now, that I’m officially finished with my book tour… (Have you gotten your copy yet?!) … I can get to some serious gardening at Edgewater Farm. For me, gardening is the ultimate therapy. If you’re upset, you can aggressively yank some weeds. And if you’re happy, you can talk nicely to the flowers. Despite […]

Holidays – Happy Easter

Happy Easter! And Happy Passover! I went simple this year with my Easter eggs. I like the look of the one color in the vintage berry baskets (a garage sale find!) I was happy making them and I’ll be even happier hopping around town delivering them. How’d your adventure in egg dying go this […]
