And I don’t mean our neighbor dog friends.
Our 2 days of garage sales are over (for the week), and we are both very, very tired.
We had quite a few people show up at 7am (the signs said our sale started at 8am), and Al might have been a little grouchy :) He told them to come back later, we weren’t ready. At that time of day, after a sale the day before, he was in no mood to be rushed.
We got everything out and ready to go a little before 8am and people started coming in pretty steady. There was a big yard sale at the church up the street and I think that may have brought us some business. Al put signs up in their parking lot :)
We sold $607 worth of stuff and got rid of a lots of stuff that had been hanging around a while. Our prices are coming down and we rarely refuse an offer.
By 1 pm, we were tired, hungry and hot. We went to lunch, then back home for our after garage sale nap! That has become a nice ritual.
After a short nap, we were a bit rejuvenated. I did some mowing, and Al did some trimming and hauling of branches. We’ve neglected the yard and it’s starting to look a bit shaggy.
Today, we’re going to take it easy. We plan to go into Tallahassee, have lunch, and pick up a few necessities that we can’t get locally. Who knows, another nap may be in our future this afternoon!
Happy Easter Everyone!
