Bringing out a new book is always an exciting event, and Shopping on Driveways: Advice for Thrifters from the Queen of Fifty Cents is no exception. This book was so much fun to write!
I’ve done a live program called Shopping on Driveways for several years, in which I share stories and tips from my years buying secondhand. It turned out to be the perfect outline for a book. And I’ve done so much thrifting through the years that I have a zillion stories. The hard part was not including them all!
Here’s what the book is about:
Shop ‘til you drop…and spend pennies on the dollar! Yard sales, tag sales, estate sales, rummage sales have amazing deals on all kinds of treasure. You can
- furnish and decorate your home
- clothe yourself and your family
- entertain the kids
- spiff up your yard
- find gifts for everyone on your list
- collect materials for crafting and upcycling
- buy items to resell at a profit.
The Queen of Fifty Cents will show you how to find great sales, how to bargain like a champ and leave everyone smiling, even how to hold your own sale (the best ever). Great advice from an expert thrifter!
