Garage sale lovers go online


WAUSAU (WAOW)--Garage sale lovers are turning to online sites to search for bargains.

"I love to shop at garage sales, but with four kids and the price of gas it is really easy to go online and search for what I want," said Crista Bobinski of Kronenwetter.

She uses the Facebook site Wausau Online Garage Sales to sell and shop.

"We used it to sell our backyard swing set and I just bought two chairs. I am now recovering them and it's a work in progress. I will get it done one of these days, said Bobinski.

She is also very cautious about giving out personal information when doing deals online.

Police officers applaud that and say you should always try to meet with the seller in a public area. Bring a family member or friend with you and have a cell phone handy.

To take part in the online site Bobinski says you must sign up to become a member.
