The Garage Sale Mysteries, like many Hallmark mysteries, are for light watching and mild entertainment. This is unlike, say, the Hallmark Christmas films, which are awful.
I love seeing the antiques and collectibles featured on the shows, and the cast is likable. These films also move a little better than others on the network.
In this one, Wedding Dress, the shop owners Jennifer and Dani (Lori Loughlin and Sarah Strange) find a vintage wedding dress from 1979 at an estate sale. Given the styles back then, I rather doubt it was a real vintage dress - guess the set dresser couldn't find one. On investigation, they learn the groom disappeared during the reception and was never seen again.
They meet the bride, Helen (Cheryl Ladd), and Jennifer becomes involved in the mystery.
These are usually easy to figure out - this one was slightly more intriguing.
The thing about anything Lifetime or Hallmark is you have to know what you're getting into and take it for what it is: made in Canada without big budgets and a mostly Canadian cast with one American TV or soap star, and not particularly well directed.
On that basis, Garage Sale Mysteries are a slight cut above the norm.
