Many in the Minot area were up with the sun this Saturday morning with great bargains in mind.
And the brightly posted signs spread across town may have given it away.
The season kicked off with this weekend's Ultimate Garage Sale Weekend.
Every spring, one weekend in May is reserved for this city-wide garage sale event.
It officially starts Friday evening and runs through Sunday afternoon.
(Minot Resident) "There is a lot of traffic going through mainly because we have about five garage sales in about a one block area and lots of signs out there."
Clothing is hung on racks, shoes lined up, and toys are set out on display.
Although this year the sales were almost nonexistent in the valley.
But there was still plenty of other garages to shop from.
For some, it was just about browsing sales.
But for others, there was a more specific reason to shop.
(Minot Resident) "I have a Dennis Rodman in a wedding dress on his wedding day.
(Jordan Pederson, KX News) "And why did you buy this?"
(Minot Resident) "For my father for Father's Day.
(Minot Resident) "Yep, him and sissy.
(Jordan Pederson, KX News) "You guys are just out shopping to get ready?
(Minot Resident) "Yeah we need clothes for both of them."
