Yay! We had a garage/yard sale!
Truly, I will tell you, that our sale was pretty lame. Our neighborhood was having a yard sale weekend, so we decided to try and sell my dad’s old wood lathe. We hurriedly found other items to place in our yard sale. Downstairs in a corner is a pile of items, such as old jeans, shoes, a laminator, and other items made up the remaining items for the sale.
Friday morning, I located my folding table and placed all of our sale items on the table. It looked very small, so I added my daughter’s old bike (mileage: 1 mile maybe). Figuring that I would have a long day, I set up my trusty On The Go Quilting sewing machine with a camp chair and a dinner tray table.
We had a few people right away…looking at one thing…you guessed it. My dad’s lathe. I sold the lathe within 30 minutes of the garage sale. Then, I sat and sewed, and sewed, and sewed. I finished sewing all of my charm squares for a throw. Then I sewed some mug rugs. I sold nothing else all day. Undeterred, I got up the next day and started the garage sale again. This time, I added a few more things. I sold one thing all day for $1.00. But I got a lot of sewing done!
Have a wonderful day!
