Road Trip Opportunities
Ok, so you’re gonna be on the road for a few days or weeks. Whether it’s a business trip, vacation, or just a visit, you’re going to have a little time in some different cities. This is actually a great opportunity to check out some new things and find some great deals.
First thing you’ll want to do is allow yourself a couple of extra days so that you can take in some local flavor without having to rush. No sense in trying to find cool stuff while on the clock. You’ll also want to ensure that you leave some trunk space available when packing your stuff.
Next, you’ll want to check out the internet for local garage sales and yard sales that will be around the areas you’re in. These usually only take a minute or two to check out and usually if they are advertised online, then they will be big enough that you may find something great.
Seeing local flea markets are also a good place to find vintage items. So are pawn shops. Depending on the location you’ll be able to find things that are themed differently. For example, in Houston, you may be able to find some great western items, while at a Miami pawn shop, you’ll find loads of beach and tropical things.
A road trip can already be fun enough all on its own, but when you add a little bit of interesting shopping into the mix, it may be a little bit of a vacation all in itself. The best part is that finding items in the above ways tends to be cheaper than going to mainstream stores, so there’s a bit of savings included in the adventure.
