Use this tool to map out your yard sale hunting for the weekend. Yard Sale Treasure Map searches through yard sale ads listed in to find the Yard Sales closest to you.

You can also type in keywords like "mid century modern" or "antique" to find yard sales in your city carrying the collectibles you crave. This is a simple tool with many perks, I'm going to use it for my Yard Sale hunting this weekend! (Detailed review here)

  3. All Thrift bloggers should write reviews of awesome local thrifting haunts. I'm working on a long one for my city of Jacksonville Florida. Can't wait 'til it's full enough to share it.

  4. WOW!! the treasure map site is FABULOUS!!! I'm heading to an upscale yard sale tomm out on the beach( pinellas county,FL) and the treasure map showed me tons of yard sales on my way there!! Hope the sales are plentiful tomm!!!

  5. This is so useful! I wish we have something like this. There are so many markets that sell secondhand stuffs all over Cambodia. Might be a good idea for me to map them, at least the ones in the capital Phnom Penh. Great job, Van.
