32nd Annual Sunwood Street Faire Garage Sale

Put this on your list of things to do this weekend if you don't have plans already.  It's the Annual Sunwood Street Faire Garage Sale!  This garage sale is held the last full weekend in July - both Saturday & Sunday.  
Every year for the past 31 years, the neighborhood near the intersection of El Toro and Toledo Way in Lake Forest has held one of the largest garage sales I've ever been to here in South Orange County, CA.
  
Thousands of people locally, from other communities and even from out of state come to this event!
There are only 237 homes in the tract but there are usually 125-150 participants over the weekend - with the majority of people on Saturday.  I will be there on Saturday.  One year I went on Sunday and just about everything was already gone.  See the photo below?
Look at THIS!  Yep, I've GOT to go Saturday morning!
I didn't see this guy the last time I went.  I remember a mother and her girls selling homemade tamales though . . .
Gotta go pick out something comfortable to wear and the bag I will carry that can double as a purse.  I think I'll stop and get a bunch of $1 and $5 bills as well.  The sale starts at 6a.m. which isn't a problem for me since I'm up every day around 4:30am anyway!  It's good to be a morning person :)

Ooo, a junker dream come true. Here in Illinois we also take quarters and dimes, but maybe prices are higher out there, lol. Have fun, and be sure to show us what you got so we can be jealous!
