Garage Sale Anyone? At least signage won't be a problem?

So, Kinzi and I have been lamenting the lack of garage sales in Jordan. There's nowhere to go and get nice, gently used things. You know, those things that have life still left in them but that you don't need anymore. I've gotten some awesome things at garage sales in the past (including furniture). But, isn't it nice to know that if you decide to have garage sale, signs are available? I was at Safeway looking for some scotch tape, when I saw this sign. Wow, I thought, those will sit on the shelf for a LOOOOONG while. But, Kinzi, for that garage sale we're thinking about, signs are no problem.

Happy signage!

Haven't you been to the Al Hussein Society for the Physically Challenged at the 7th Circle? They have a nearly new shop and welcome any donations. If you want books they have a lot for sale. Go down any week day after 10. At the 7th go to the 8th (not under the tunnel) take first turning right, turn left at T then first right. Drive to second mini roundabout and turn left and the Al Hussein Society is at the end of the road before it turns right on the left hand side. T

There are plenty Garage Sales in Jordan. They are better organized than the west though. See, there is something called سوق الجورة (the ditch market) In the Downtown area. It is very popular!

I am from Amman but never ever was I more confused by directions than the way you are giving them. At the end, are we actually still Jordan?

Kinzi, indeed.

T, been there love it! I actually go, buy books, then return the SAME books to them to sell again :). But, I have to admit that going to a thrift store just doesn't feel quite the same as cruising neighborhoods early in the morning with a friend looking for bargains, teehee.

mab3oos, buying stuff from a flea market is (see above) a very different thing in a way that's ahrd to describe, but I did JUST become aware of the markets bil balad after 2 yers! living here. Shame on El 3atal. And, it's probably a Western thing, but T's directions are just right :).
