Garage sale day…

We were up at crack of dawn, 5am, Jack biked off to put garage sale notices, with our address on them, at every intersection, 10 in total. I moved things around outside so they could be seen, and was finishing pricing things when the first customer arrived, 6-30am.

He told me that the paper had put our ad into the “for sale” section, not “garage sale”. As the day wore on and more and more people arrived I asked how they had found us and all said they followed the signs Jack had put up. So much for the newspaper ad…

Friends June and Rex came over to help and more importantly keep up a supply of coffee and delicious cake, that June had made.

We had a fun day, Jack is really good at persuading people they just can’t leave with out this or that. By 1-30pm it had slowed down to just the occasional person dropping in to browse around. By then every thing had been well picked over. At 4pm I shut up shop while Jack went round to collect all the garage sale signs. We then went upstairs to count the cash and put our feet up with a well-earned cuppa.

We were well pleased with the final total of almost $300. But more importantly a lot of the junk had gone and we can now fine tune all the rest of our clearing up…
