First day of the Garage Sale!

June 7th, 2007 at 01:32 am

Well, the weather was awesome until about 2 o'clock when the temperture hit in the high 80's. We did get started at 8 and wrapped up at 3. Grand total for the day was 472.25.

Surprisingly, we sold the junk and little things and not the big ticket items. Hubby came home and ask what we had sold. He said the driveway looked the same as when he left this morning.

Sold loads of clothes at 50 cents each. I don't price the everyday stuff. I just seperate it on different tables by sex and sizes. One table baby, toddler, boys, girls, ladies, men, and three tables of juniors. I was amazed that we sold stuffed animals as well. Gave away a bunch ,too. Books were a hot item. My daughter's old purses went fast.

All and all, I feel pretty good about the day. In great hopes we sell tons more tomorrow. I really do not look forward to boxing any of it back up Friday afternoon.
The baby stuff is going to a new shelter for woman and children in a neighboring town. It works out perfectly, because a friend needs to use our tables for a wedding reception next weekend and she can take the clothes when she picks up the tables.

I am tired! One long bath and I am going to try to convience the kids to go to sleep early. Okay, I am going to take a long bath and hope my hubby volunteers to stay up with the kids. My odds are much better that way!!

    That is a nice chunk of change. I am having a yard sale later this summer. I hope mine is as lucrative as yours. Can't wait to read what the next couple days will bring you.

    You did very well, much better than i did, tho i have to laugh, i also sold a lot of stuff i never thought would sell, including several items I had rescued from others' trash years ago (an old pitchfork and a small bookshelf), and actually sold a 25-year old hand mixer, a hairbrush, amazing.
