Day 2 of the Garage Sale Adventure

Had a better night’s sleep, but did not dream about anything.

What did we sell the most of? Holiday decorations and costumes. These were followed closely by baby clothes.

The amazing thing is that most of our customers were repeat shoppers. We have only had 4 garage sales here in the last 2 years (the Township allows 4 a year). Yet, we had people coming in today saying, “Do you remember me?” Frequently, we did.

(In one case, though, it was her dog we recognized. In fact, we remembered the dog’s name.)

Perhaps they come back because they have fun with us. I totally enjoy helping people find the “something” they did not know they wanted. I enjoy hearing their stories, meeting their families, and making them happy with their “finds”. We laugh with them, and they with us. We also have very good prices. In fact, we are the “queens” of the 25 cent items!

Tomorrow is the last day, and we are hoping for a good Saturday turnout. It would be very nice to clean out as much stuff as we can. Perhaps this will be the day that a single person comes in to our garage sale and buys the rest of the furniture. Perhaps they will buy purses and/or Halloween costumes instead.

We shall just have to wait and see.
