Two huge garage sales to visit this weekend, one in Lake Highlands and one in East Dallas, but both large enough to justify starting up the car and burning a little gas.

At Lake Highlands United Methodist Church, 9015 Plano Road, the congregation’s annual church-wide sale features sporting goods, clothing, furniture, bicycles, computers and more. Stop by today and Saturday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

And in the 1500 block of Highland between Ferguson and Garland Road, a neighborhood of 166 homes is banding together Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. to clean out unwanted stuff. The easiest route: From Garland Road, turn onto San Rafael (the light at the White Rock Spillway), then turn right on Highlands (the second street on the right), and after three road humps, you’ll see the gates of Enclave at White Rock, the neighborhood that is home to the sale.
