Tag Sale is a New England term..they might be called Yard sales or Rummage sales in your neck of the woods......

I was just curious how many of you guys still did that in the spring and summer, get out there and stop and see what kind of 80's treasures you can score from yardsales??

I dont do it anymore......mostly cuz who has the time......but I remember finding some pretty neet booty from the 80's (and a bunch of stuff from the 70's too)........like my Radio Shack ARMATRON and my full head Richard Nixon mask ;)

      I live in Flea Market central. We have flea marets allll over and tons of garage sales. Also there's a farmer's market not too far off that has one store that sells crazy old stuff in it. Last time I got like Garbage Pail Kids pin, Eureeka's Castle stickers, and some 20+ year old packs of He-Man gum. I went with my now ex-bf, I wish I could go back, but I have no sense of direction and get lost like you can not believe.

      There's also a cool farmer's market by the mall here Fri-Sun and you can get yummy old fashioned treats and stuff.

          I've never actually been to one, but have seen a lot of them this past summer (yard sales). Infact, my family almost had one.

          People would LOVE to get their hands on my goodies, lol but I was only gonna be getting rid of old clothes and some un opened cereal box toys that I had collected (unknowingly). Don't think I would ever get rid of my childhood toys...well until they are worth soo much that I can't turm down the cash.

            My town's not the best place for finding 80s stuff. It's rare I see anything from the 80s. I have however found:

            a Pound Puppy
            A Popple
            A huge bag o' Care Bears
            Battle Cat and Orko from He Man


            aaaaaand that's about it.
