Not every REI has a Garage Sale on the same day. We have three REI stores in the Austin area and I know that they stagger their Garage Sales.

You are lucky! I didn't know if this latest one was a national or regional sale. I'm guessing since you didn't indicated that you had one in Austin that my sale was a regional one. All my Wisconsin stores had one this last weekend.

Ok, just checked. You have one coming up next month in Austin. Good luck hunting to you!

I have attended them in the past and scored some nice finds. But, like any garage sale, it is hit or miss depending on what you are in the market for and can afford. Being a lightweight backpacker, a kayaker and a hammock hanger, most of the stuff at REI that I want I have already purchased or it is too heavy. Most of what I look for these days is clothing and replacement items that wear out (hiking shoes) and so forth. But it is always fun to look if you have the time and patience to spend the morning there.
