Deep in the heart of every yard saler is the fervent hope that they’ll stumble upon some real treasure – maybe the lost Ark of the Covenant.

And deep in the basement of every yard saler are the treasures they actually came home with: used vacuums, waffle irons, bicycle tire pumps – the very items they need to have a yard sale of their own.

It’s an eternal cycle. Here’s how to make the most of it.

Ever taken a walk on the beach and just wanted to keep going? A walk all the way around the Island is on my list of things to do; I’ve just never quite gotten around to doing it.
