Yard Sale Success

Finally had our yard sale today. We shared our driveway with Jennifer Karb, so there was plenty of stuff to browse and buy. They were calling for hot weather - as long as it does not rain we are fine, since two large trees shade the driveway.

We started setting up after 6:30 am. By 7:00, we were still setting up but people were already stopping by. We probably made about $20 before 8:00, the official start time. People came and went. Had plenty of visitors from the senior's building across the street.

After lunch Tina and I had sold most of the large items including the bookcase, CD cases, stroller, fish tank, metal shelving unit. The books and VHS movies were hot sellers. Some things that we thought would sell, didn't, and vice-a-versa. The desk didn't sell, though someone did show some interest and may stop in later during the week.

Around 3 pm we started packing up. There are about four large boxes of stuff that we will be donating to charity - no keeping the stuff this time around. There is still the desk and floating shelves to sell - I'll post something at work. We made over $220 towards Corbin's camp.
