Put on some comfy shoes, load your wallet with one-dollar bills and practice your hard core negotiating skills. Yep, it’s time for Roscoe Village Neighbors‘ Eighth Annual Community Garage Sale.

More than 30 neighborhood households are participating in the one-day bargain hunting extravaganza, May 19, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. We’ll point you in the right direction with the handy map below, but it’s up to you to unearth your own treasure.

For garage sale newbies, we found these helpful haggling phrases courtesy of Vintage Bazaar, including “I’ve only got $3 cash on me [lie]. Would you take $3?” Of course, pros know to say, “I’ve only got a quarter on me.”
