* The list of fairs and markets in ''The Literature/{{Discworld}} Almanack'' includes the Ankh-Morpork equivalent of the car boot sale, the cart tail sale. This is organised by the Thieves' Guild, in reference to a comment Sir Creator/TerryPratchett made on Usenet that car boot sales are where you go because you need replacements for your stolen garden tools, and end up buying your stolen garden tools.

* The song "Yard Sale" by Sammy Kershaw is about a yard sale being held by a couple who are getting rid of all the things that they used to own because they have broken up:
-->Oh they're sortin' through what's left of you and me\\
Paying yard sale prices for each golden memory\\
Oh I never thought I'd ever live to see\\
The way they're sorting through what's left you and me

* ''Series/FamilyMatters'': The last pre-Urkel episode, "Family Quilt," sees Laura accidentally sell the Winslows' heirloom quilt, which had been in the family for more than 200 years, after the quilt becomes mixed in with other merchandise at the family's garage sale. (Yes, plenty of other bad garage sale jokes abound in the meantime.) Laura realizes her mistake and after seeing her grandmother's thinly-veiled disappointment in her goes all out to get it back. The stubborn curator, who had bought the quilt for top dollar, won't budge and is actually prepared to go to court to get to keep this rare find, but Laura's tearfully impassioned speech finally gets the curator to relent.

** ''Series/HighRollers'': One of the special bonus games during the Wink Martindale era was called "Wink's Garage Sale," which -- depending on the roll of a die, awarded the contestant either a prize or [[{{Zonk}} a worthless gag gift]]" (such as a Mickey Mouse phone that might have been purchased at a Goodwill store).

** ''Series/SaleOfTheCentury'': On occasion, one of the Instant Bargain segments was dubbed a Sale "Garage Sale," consisting of previous Instant Bargain prizes that were not won. Anywhere from four to six items might be offered at a time, and although most of the prizes were the more unusual offerings, not all of the prizes were worthless gag gifts (at least one "Garage Sale" included a trip to Hawaii, while others usually included such things as [=TV=]s and stereo equipment). The major difference between regular Instant Bargains and Garage Sales was that if the player eligible for this particular Instant Bargain passed, host Jim Perry would open up things to all three players and allowing them to possibly buy; he would simply lower the asking price as needed to as low as $1, until someone either bought the prizes or all three passed an a "no sale" was declared. Perry once remarked that Sale "Garage Sales" allowed contestants who were trailing by a large margin and probably not likely to win the game to come away with some nice merchandise he might not otherwise get a chance to win.
