    REI garage sale

    Hey, its been a while since I've been on the forums, but I noticed that the REI in East Hanover is having its garage sale on Dec. 29th. I was planning to car camp in the parking lot or hang in the nearby woods near the store in order to get a frontrow spot. Anyone want to join me? There's gonna be some HUGE discounts on relatively new equipment.

    Yip, in Denver, it's always the last Saturday of the month. Usually busy, but good deals can be had. Especially after all the folks returning stuff from the holidays.

    Most, if not all, REI's have their "Garage Sale" event several times per month. Incredible deals to be found. The one I go to, Portland, will have it on Saturday & Sunday. Saturday's prices are already incredible but whatever doesn't sale on Saturday gets an extra 50% off for Sunday! What some do is find something they really want and take a chance, come back Sunday and basically steal it (read: for next to nothing). Some will even try to tuck it away somewhere in the sale area on Saturday hoping no one will find it.

    Just recently we scored a heck of a deal on a nice family car camping tent (REI Kingdom 4). Yes I said "tent" in the hammock forums....shoot me. I even made a video of the deal we scored: http://youtu.be/B1-UHTWAEQg

    I'd hit that dumpster. My closest REI is in a neighborhood where there will already be people in the dumpster, not related to the sale.

    Wow, I didn't realize there were so many sales going on at once. The ones here only happen three or four times a year, so I make sure I go when I can. But I'm only talking about the REI in East Hanover, NJ. If no one wants to join me in person, you can always do it in spirit at your local REI.
