Overview

Good Morning America correspondent Lara Spencer is a self-confessed frugalista with a passion for shopping at yard sales, thrift shops, and estate sales, and for decorating her home and friends’ homes with her fabulous finds. In I Brake for Yard Sales, Lara shares her secrets for bargain hunting and tells you where to shop, what to look for, how to pay for it, how to restore it, and finally, where to put it in your house. Looking for the newest arrivals at your local thrift shops? After busy Saturdays and no-pick-up Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are generally the best days to shop for fresh items. Peppered with wisdom from world-renowned appraisers whom Lara knows from her previous work on Antiques Roadshow as well as contributions from well-known designers, this book also features the house of comedienne and good friend Kathy Griffin, which Spencer herself refurbished and decorated.

    Loved this book for beginning to end!

    I bought this book on a suggestion from a TV show and have never been more grateful! From beginning to end this book is full of great resources, witty advice and very cute humor! I love this book and was done reading it within a couple of days because I just couldn't put it down! Thanks Lara for all of your insight and direction!

    Great pictures of before and after. She is so down to earth and I love that she takes inexpensive second hand items and turn them into glorious home decor! This is by far my favorite book! Highly recommend!
