Garage sales still popular in electronic era

An interesting article notes that garage remain "stylish" despite the growing popularity of Craigslist and other online mediums. Many online booksellers remain committed to garage sales as a source of inventory, especially with the increasingly crowded and "vulturistic" environment at book sales these days. Garage sales are so incredibly time consuming that you really have to be an expert at finding quality books and sales to make it add up. Some, I know, love garage sales themselves and feel like they can chalk that time up as "hobby" or "entertainment" time as opposed to a business expense. In any event, the continued supply of garage sales is good news for online booksellers who are always scrambling for new inventory.
