What are the most popular items at garage sales in Ocean County, NJ
It’s ‘yard sales’ season and a lot of us just love to watch and see what’s going on. Maybe you collect some items or are just looking for bargains or nostalgic items from yesterday. Some people find interior design and others are looking for entertainment or sporting goods.
I wanted to put together my list of the most popular items, in my opinion, that are generally available here in Ocean County when you are checking out garage sales. The things we look for when we stop by a good garage sale in our neighborhoods. One thing to keep in mind is that someone else’s item they don’t want may be exactly what YOU were looking for and at a fraction of the cost of going to a new retail store.
Here are some of the items that I think are big sellers in garage sales ……
- Household items (decor, kitchen, furniture)
- Sport stuff
- Holiday items
One thing I always watch is golf clubs lol when I see a garage sale with golf clubs… I’ll take a look. You never know what you might find, most of the time I won’t make a find, but I do and it’s always fun ⛳️
Tools are another popular item, they are expensive and when you find a tool you need and love you can save a lot. Again, I won’t always find a tool in a yard sale, but when you do, it’s usually a score!

I will say that when I go to a garage sale, I don’t always buy something. I won’t buy just to buy, if I don’t need it… .. I won’t but this. For me, buying things that you don’t need just because it’s cheap is “garbage collection” so I stay away from that. So every time it’s out, it’s “let’s see what’s out there” and some days you see stuff and other times I come home empty-handed. On my last trip last weekend it was a ‘no find’ weekend for me, we’ll see what happens next time.
