If you go there to look for something in particular, you can go to the correct area an see what's available without having to sort though a jumble of junk. Both this year and last, we went looking specifically for chairs. Last year my oldest son wanted some chrome chairs, and we found some that will likely last him the rest of his life, and they were only $3 each. This year my sister-in-law mentioned she also needed some chairs for her kitchen. When the day came, she had a previously scheduled appointment, and couldn't make it to the sale. We told her we would look, and grabbed up 4 nice sturdy wooden chairs for her for a grand total of $20.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
