Garage sales — and their relatives, the estate and yard sales — are cheap, usually easy to find, and havens for collectors' items or the perfect object you didn't realize was missing from your home. But who has the time to hit every sale on a given Saturday morning? The SchlaFlea Market Urban Thrift Sale
solves this problem by bringing all the sales to you. Scads of amateur vendors congregate at the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-241-2337 or www.schlafly.com
) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, allowing dozens of opportunities to find that perfect lamp or end table. Unsold items are going to Goodwill, and you can even bring your own treasures down and donate them to Goodwill — it's a nice and convenient way to make space for any new items you happen to find.
