Obviously, we started the morning of our sale off right.
ALSO, one of my good friends texted me first thing that morning that a home nearby had just shared a photo of her sale on Facebook and it had the EXACT rock n play for sale that I had on my registry for Mabel. So, I started our sale day spending money and ditching Jim haha! But, $20 good condition RNP? Totally worth it.
During our sale last year it rained the ENTIRE sale. Complete with thunder, lightning, and HAIL. Yet, for some reason, the crowds were insane. We had tons and tons and tons of people in and out of our garage.
This year? It was sunny and 70, albeit windy, yet the crowds were ridiculously light. I don’t get it.
Unfortunately because it was so windy we had to keep our stuff in the garage, which I always hate doing, but we still did decent.
Abigail was quite the helper and was our official garage sale greeter. Saying hello and thank you/have a good day are two of her biggest specialties.
Her little neighborhood friend came over to play also which was awesome because it kept her entertained AND he brought his Little Tikes basketball goal over with him- which people stopped to shop because they thought it was for sale(it wasn’t) but it was a great bait and switch lol!
Altogether we made about $175 this sale, which was a lot less than we were hoping, but we were able to get rid of our bar stools, old counters, and some other bulky items that we didn’t want to keep around anymore. Plus, we just stuck everything that didn’t sell into a box and back up into the attic- ready and waiting(and already tagged!) for next year’s sale.
The stuff we didn’t want to mess with anymore got taken to Goodwill and our local Habitat For Humanity Restore and now it’s safe to say that our house, garage, and attic are much more organized and cleared out! Plus, it was a pretty fun way to spend a morning together 🙂
Have you ever hosted a garage sale? How did it go?
