Bright colors at yard sales is a dead give away. When you are to that point in the day, you’ve already done well at an estate sale or two, and now you are “yard sailing” it back home, you don’t need to stop at every one you see. My opinion only, but I have determined that for good finds on vintage stuff, you can drive right on past any colorful yard sales. It’s usually kids clothing, kids toys, and newer worthless products. Look for darker subdued older displays.
