"Let's have a garage sale!" Says a friend that lives in a neighborhood that doesn't allow sales. That means, "Can we have a sale at your house?"
UGH! HA! Really, i don't mind. I give this friend a really hard time about it but it is usually fun when we get all of our junk together and try to gain a few dollars!
We tried for a LONG time to find a weekend to gather all of our former treasures and let them become other people's treasures but finding a weekend proved to be difficult. That made me secretly happy because it really is a tough job. My friend, and my Mom, now in on the gig, persevered and we came up with a plan.
We have a friend that has access to a community house that the public is allowed to hold garage sales in for a small fee. That sounded like a great plan since it had heat/air and no one had to clean their garage in order to have a sale.
The date was picked, the building booked! Let the pricing begin!
All in all, there were four families represented and we had A LOT OF JUNK! Junk that once meant so much to us yet now we just wanted to get a quarter for it. WOW! We could not believe how much we had! Just look!
|This is just a fraction of the stuff!|
|Papaw helped! How great is it that we had a "Mother of the Bride dress" and dyed to match shoes!|
|Look at those cute princess bedding things! (i have boys, i don't know what they are called)|
|We had an organ that my parents found for the boys for FREE! And we sold it for $25! Crazy, i know!|
|This sweet little one had several things that she was carrying around . The smile on her face was BEAUTIFUL!|
(Not sure why i didn't get that smile but you can see how cute she is)
It was a good weekend. We had lots of laughs and left with aches and pains but we felt lighter and were blessed by the sweet family that ended that weekend!
SHEW! I hope it is a long time before the next one! ; )
