It is almost summer time, which means hot weather, swimming pools, BBQ, lemonade and community yard sales.The Mathewson Center on the State Fair grounds will host "The World's Largest Garage Sale" on Saturday, May 18.

Here are some of the best items you can find at a garage sale.

  • Music and Movies - Yard sales are the perfect place to find old movies and CDs people want to sell for a cheap price. If you have movies or CDs that have been lost, broken or whatever, a garage sale is a great place to find and replace some of your old favorites.
  • Furniture - Sedalia, Warrensburg and Marshall are all college towns, and where better to find cheap apartment furniture than a yard sale. They are a great place to buy coffee table, chairs, desks and more.
  • Antiques - Yard sales are often times filled with antiques being sold by people who do not their value. Most antique shoppers know this, but for people who are just starting, the "World's Largest Garage Sale" is great place to start.
  • Electronics - New and improved electronics come out all of the time. If you do not want to spend the money on $1000 TV, go to a garage sale and get one for $30. Yard sales also usually have DVD players, video games and more for a much lower price.
  • Clothes - Garage sales are always full of clothes. Yard sales are really good for kids' clothes and name brand clothes. You can usually find the kids nice clothes they will grow out of within a year without breaking the bank at the mall. You can also find quality name brand clothes for yourself without spend a lot of money as well.
