Do You Buy Used Books At Garage Sales, Thrift Stores, Etc?

I can't say as I've ever purchased any used books at a garage sale. mainly because I don't go to them... And, I've only purchased a few used books at a thrift store once as thrift stores aren't places I shop at either. However, I love purchasing books at  Friends of the Library book sales. 

In fact, when my husband and I lived in Carpinteria, California, there was a Friends of Library Used Bookstore next door to the Carpinteria Library and I use to shop there frequently for used books as it was my favorite place to buy used books.

So, do you buy used books at garage sales, thrift stores, fol bookstores, etc?

As a side note, I did come across an interesting article on the Huffington Post titled The 10 Books At Garage Sales You Should Never Pass Up by Ann Brenoff... It's always intriguing to read which books others think would be great books to purchase at discounted prices.


  1. Yes, I get books wherever I can find them for less than retail! Garage sales, flea markets, thrift stores, especially Little Free Libraries! There are two in my city!

    1. I like finding books at Little Free Libraries too!! We've been to two of them up here in Northern California since we've moved up here and three in Southern California. I looking forward to visiting more Free Little Libraries in the future.
