YARD SALE DAY!! I prepped and planned for days and finally, yard sale day arrived.
|Yard sale ambassadors, Sean & Sheldon.|
A 6:00 a.m. wake-up on a Sunday is never any fun; less-so when you have just received your long-awaited dream bed the evening prior. But I hauled myself up, grabbed my bag of dollar bills and quarters, and headed over to Sean’s with my final load of junk for sale. We unloaded furniture, merchandized our wares, had our first customers - as well as our first few sales - all before 8:30 a.m.
Between me, Sean, and Sean’s new puppy, Sheldon, we managed to field every strange request (no, we do not have any green pizzelle makers, aluminum gliders or antique microphones, sorry) and have a successful sale.
|BOGO-BOGO, everything must go!|
Around 4:00 p.m. we decided to call it quits, Mike came to collect me and the few items that didn’t sell. Since he had never believed that anyone would buy my “junk” and kind-of insinuated that I might be a tad foolish for putting so much work into this yard sale, he was incredulous when I hopped into the car with only a few items left and a huge wad of cash. I took him out to dinner with my some of my “winnins” and his view on yard sales has totally shifted. He now wonders how much we could “get” for every item in our house.
I told him… It’s all about the BOGOS.
|On our way home, we even saw a double rainbow - day for BOGOS, indeed!|
