Hunt For Some Treasures This Weekend In Royal Oak!

Maybe swine & bourbon isn't really your thing. Or maybe you're in the need of a little retail therapy. Well, whether you are heading to Pig & Whiskey or not this weekend, you should definitely make a pit stop in Royal Oak. That's because this weekend is the 37th Annual Royal Oak Garage Sale!
The Royal Oak Garage Sale is the perfect place to find a great deal on things that you need and even those things you might not need. The event takes place in the Lafayette Avenue Parking Structure between 5th & 6th Streets, sort of behind UHF and Lost & Found Vintage. The garage sale will be full of hundreds of booths with vendors and everyday folks selling everything from furniture to record albums, knick knacks to clothing, and everything in between. There are also booths that are a little more commercial and a little less garage sale-y that sell merchandise from companies such as Pampered Chef and Avon. Whatever you may or may not be looking for, I guarantee you will find something you just have to have while shopping in the structure. 

Last year, my "must have" item was this December 1977 Rona Barrett's Hollywood Magazine with a tribute to Elvis, shortly after his passing, and plenty of Star Wars features inside. I was lucky enough to snag this treasure up for a measly $5!
In addition to the great deals you will find within the Lafayette Parking Structure, many of your favorite shops in Downtown Royal Oak will be having sidewalk sales this weekend! I was just in Incognito the other day and they had tons of cute new stuff in! I'm sure that they, and many of your other favorites, will have some killer deals!

So, if your in the mood to shop this weekend, don't get stuck inside a mall. Instead, head down to Royal Oak and enjoy the sales and the sun! Admission to the Royal Oak Garage Sale is only $2 and is Free for kids 12 and under. The sale runs Saturday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you head down early one of the days, you might want to grab brunch first at Café Muse. Check out Sadie's review from her meal there last weekend!
