We have completed day 2 of the sale. Yesterday (Thursday) was by far the better of the two days. We had constant traffic and I sold pretty much most of my bigger items. Only one of my items was over $10, and that was a toddler bed that went to a family that I know from school. Today was a much slower sale day but I got to spend the day talking with a friend. Several other people I know stopped by the sale as well. If you are wondering what is in the picture above, it is my garage sale tip. I accidently came up with this idea last year and like it so well, I did it again this year. I had a small rolling cart, that I made my sale center. In the bottom drawer, I kept the cash box. Having it in a drawer kept it out of view but allowed me to have easy access when necessary. In the other drawers I had my calculator, tape, pen, paper towels, wipes and anything else I might need. In the pink box on top, I stored all my plastic bags that were easy to grab when needed. I had more than one shopper tell me they thought that way I set up my center was a good idea.
We had a successful sale with our Beading to Beat Autism table. We sold 20 bracelets so far. This makes 44 bracelets sold in a week! Thank you to all that have contributed.
We also had a successful recital rehearsal. Now we just have the recital on Saturday. Tomorrow at 5:30, I will be able to breath again and my schedule will slow down significantly!
