So, back in November I had a garage sale for 2 days. Got rid of a bunch of stuff, and was happy. Repacked what was left over, and in addition to packing things up for donation, I set aside some of the better stuff for a flea market in March. It seemed so long ago! lol
Thursday was set up day. I got 2 8 foot tables, and yes, I had that much stuff. I had a large box of stuffed animals, another large box of old fashioned plastic animals, plus lots of dishes, glassware, some depression glass, pictures, trays, candle sticks, etc., etc. I put everything out, and it looked nice.
The first day of the sale was Friday. Why it was held on a Friday and a Saturday, I have no idea, but it was. We had some people come through, but not as many as I thought would. I thought for sure there's be "pickers" - those are people who come through flea markets and yard sales buying for antique stores. I made the cost of one of my tables, plus some. Saturday was a little better. I had one person buy all of the plastic animals, and I donated the stuffed animals to a church. I made the cost of my second table, plus more, so monetarily, it was successful. I got a lead on a person who is interested in buying vintage linens, because I do have more, and that's good. I packed up the things I still wanted to keep (one box worth), and the things I was donating to Goodwill (three boxes). When I left, I drove straight to Goodwill, and dropped the boxes off and got a receipt.
The thing that surprised me the most was how exhausting it is to sit! I'd get up and walk around every so often, but it was just me doing the table, so I couldn't be gone for long. I also read a book on Saturday. Yes, a whole book. It was a good one, too. "The Dressmaker" by Rosalie Ham. Very interesting characters and story. My bike riding took a bit of a hit this weekend, but I'll be back at it tomorrow. Took the day today as a rest day.
I got all caught up on my friend feed, and tomorrow I'll visit my teams. It was a busy weekend, but it was a good one! I hope yours was too!
