Old, dirty, and/or broken, discarded items ranging from bathroom shower curtain rings, to under-stuffed chairs with oily stains and animal hair, for sale. Items are displayed on blankets and folding tables inside of a garage, or on the driveway, and across the lawn. Common identifiers of a "yard sale" are lines of cars (old and new) parked with two wheels sinking into a neighbors' grass and women, usually in pairs, with big butts and wiggly arms, grabbing everything marked 50 cents. Cardboard signs directing drivers to the sale are seen for years after.
