One of the biggest tag sales is coming soon to Adams
The summer months are the best for tag sales, I’ve always called them garage sales.
My mom got me addicted to tag sales. She was great at haggling over prices, which is part of the fun of a tag sale, and also picking up some really cool stuff.
If you’re like me, you’ll most likely walk away with a few treats!
This upcoming event has to be the biggest city-wide tag sale event of the summer coming August 13th, it’s probably too late to register for your tag sale be included, but you can always call the town hall specifically the town clerk. Office at the town hall and see if they will include you.

This event will be rain or shine, wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and bring your shopping bags so you can stock up on all the goodies for sale.
Here are some ways to get the best deals.
Plan your sales, since there’s a map above, you can hit a bunch in one area and then move on to another, saving you time and gas.
Look poor. Don’t show up to a garage sale like a bum, but don’t look totally sloppy and disheveled. Many sellers won’t budge on the price if you look like you can afford more than they’re asking.
Be sure to bring small bills so you don’t have to feel embarrassed presenting $50 when you’ve just haggled to bring the price down to $5.
Form a relationship. Find the seller and start the conversation. Ask him which pieces interest you, where and when they were acquired. Establishing a humanizing connection can make it easier to gain agreement.
Be prepared to walk away. If the seller is asking $50 for an item, don’t offer $5. Being unrealistic will only make matters worse. Instead, offer a reasonable amount, like $30, and negotiate from there. If the seller still won’t budge, start putting things back together, it might make him reconsider. Otherwise, walk away.
Good luck and good tag sales to you!
