I said last year that I wouldn’t ever have another garage sale…but I didn’t keep my promise. Hosted a sale with 5 others on Saturday. The weather was picture perfect and we had a fabulous turnout. I did pay for an ad in the local paper, and used craigslist and kijiji.com. Everyone except me did very well. My big items didn’t sell so I need to get them on craigslist. I was in Ft. Lauderdale on business last week, so I was short on time and wasn’t as prepared and organized as I wanted to be…so the merchandising was lacking. I am going on record and saying it here publicly with my right hand raised…this was my last garage sale. Whenever the time comes and I leave this house I will have a moving sale…so that won’t count.
Kathy (my kindred junking spirit) over at Sylvia’s Vintage Daughter thinks my blog is fabulous and sent along an award. Thanks Kathy. I am forwarding this award on to five fellow bloggers that I enjoy visiting.
