I mentioned before that my dad is planning on selling the house he's lived in for the past 40 years.
So after working our butts off and gathering stuff from all over my dads house, last Saturday we had a garage sale there.
Friday night after work we went over there and set up tables and put a bunch of stuff on them
Saturday morning we got there around 7:30 am to price stuff and finish setting stuff up, The sale started at 10:00.
The pictures really don't show how much stuff there was but you get the drift.
My dad's house is right on a main street so I put an ad on Craigslist and we put signs on the two major intersections by his house and in the front.
After 6 hours when the sale was over, the house looked pretty much like it does in the pictures above.
We had about 10 people total I think and he made $114 all together. So disappointing! I think the problem was it's pretty much the end of the garage sale season and people just aren't coming out anymore!
I'm contemplating boxing up all of the stuff and trying again at my house in the Spring when my subdivision has their sub garage sale. There is a lot of good sell-able stuff and I hate to have to donate it all! I know my dad could use the money,too! Plus he has several things that are really old that I would like to take to a antique dealer to see if they are worth anything. I plan on doing a post on that soon.
In other news, my friend Marie is a grandma now. Her daughter had her baby last Thursday!
Here she is with her husband and little Mariana Marsella! I am so happy for her and her family and would be lying if I didn't admit that I am a little jealous, too!
Until the next time......
