Here are a few things I learned on Saturday:
1. When you don't have a garage "scattered showers" suck. We got everything on tables and ready for the sale. Shower. This was when we figured out having extra tarps in the shed is a good thing. We also found out if the rain is light enough a large pine tree is good to have to set stuff under and keep dry. Every 1/2 hour it was tarp on, tarp off... tarp on, tarp off. Three hours of the yard sale version of the Karate Kid.
2. A lady from Florida who has lived all over the U.S. stopped at our sale and wondered why everywhere else had garage sale weekends on the WEEKENDS. In our area the weekend apparently was Thursday through Saturday, not Saturday and Sunday. Some of us have to work on Thursday and Friday.
3. A lot of sales stopped on Sat. around noon. We stayed open until 5:00. Our three biggest sales were after 3:00. Overtime pays... just sayen.
Type at ya later.
Oh, and if you like the antique table or mirror in the photos, they didn't sell at the garage sale and they're still for sale.
