never again!

So. The yard sale sucked in oh so many ways. Someone please kick me if I ever say I’m having a yard sale again!

It was so humid in the morning that I had to take my glasses off while we were pulling all the junk out of the garage because they kept fogging up. And then there was the sweat. I don’t like to sweat!!

I had hopes of decent traffic when people started showing up at 7:30 to shop. Except the early birds only wanted old albums. ~grumble grumble~ I don’t have any records and I wouldn’t sell them to you if I did. Harrumph.

Do you know how boring a yard sale is when no one shows up? Okay, not no one, but almost. Ugh.

Damon had nothing to do so he played with the panorama feature on his iphone. It’s weirdly accurate and yet not at all. Um, our driveway is supposed to be a straight line?

Then he cleaned the garage. Now that’s bored!

Josh was trooper. He manned his toy table until 1pm when he finally gave up and went inside to watch tv. I couldn’t blame him, I desperately wanted to go inside too, sit in front of the air conditioner, and freeze my face off!

In the end, I made $38, Josh made $21, and we still have massive piles of stuff in the garage. I refuse to bring any of it back in the house lest it never leave again. I took some things to the transfer station to the area people can pick over for free, a bag of clothes went into a Salvation Army bin, a box of books are ready for the used bookstore, and the rest of it will be donated to my favorite charity yard sale in September.

I’m close to selling a dining room table on craigslist today, which is what we should have done with everything in the first place. ~sigh~

Yard sales are so not worth the effort. Lesson learned.

hey local peeps!

FYI, the women’s group I volunteer for is having a charity yard sale and bake sale at the Merrimack Town Hall parking lot from 9am -2pm tomorrow (Saturday.) Stop by and say hi if you get a chance – I plan to be there all day! Btw, there’s always lots of good toys for the little ones. 🙂

And, I made cupcakes…you know you want one:
