Newell just called me crazy, saying the sun wasn’t up yet, and what was I doing getting up at 6:00 AM? Doesn’t he know people start coming for a Garage Sale VERY early in the morning? And my stuff is still sitting in the hallway, not outside… Silly man!
Anyway, about to go set up. I will post results as soon as I give up. 😉
UPDATE ONE: So, I was set up by 7 AM, I think…thereabouts, and just gave up about 1 PM. Too bloody hot out there. Why is it so blame hot in May…? (No, please don’t answer that… 🙂 )
Rearranged things pretty much constantly all day as holes appeared or the shade moved. Hot, tired, and ready to collapse. Was it worth it? $42 and a handful of change, plus I spent $5 next door on a really cool gadget my neighbor Kathleen had — it is a micro fridge that can plug in to the wall or the car. I am expecting to get a lot of use out of that when my Office is functional. And I treated her to a cup of lemonade that the little girl two doors down was selling, so that is another 50 cents. I made sure to have a glass of ice water the rest of the time, and I am still working on it now…really sweaty out there.
All in all, considering that most of my stuff was priced at 10, 25, or 50 cents, and that I had a couple of barterers and flat out gave a few things away, I think I did all right.
Pictures, or it didn’t happen, right? Here ya go:
Initial set up Bargain bins
Books — sold ONE all day — and Videos Soaps and Office Stuff –sold Menorah
Mostly cards Old software and hardware
Moved books hoping it would help…didn’t. Sold both boxes for $15. Tired of them!
We also FINALLY planted Lantana… My awesome new Fridge
Hot, tired, and HAPPY to be done! Final take
There’s another one in October. 🙂
Oooh! A garage sale! Hope you do well. (Doing well = getting rid of crap you want to get rid of AND not selling something you wanted to keep but your S.O. wanted you to sell 😉 )
It was fun. Did get rid of a lot of little crap. Newell just made me promise not to sell the furniture…
Lol. Awesome. Glad it worked out well. Enjoy a much deserved rest.
YAY! So… you hit one milestone, the yard sale…. so when / what’s the next one?
As far as cleaning goes, probably getting the Office functional…because it really should be to finish the next draft of Skellyman….
Thanks, Liz. I wish I’d made a bit more, but for the items I had, I thought it went well. I was surprised that no one wanted the books or videos, but VHS is rather passe now…
This is true, unfortunately. Even CDs are hard to flip.
It all looks very organized!
It’s all an act. 😉 I am one of the most disorganized people I know…but Liz is helping. 🙂
She is amazing…
