Garage Sale Weekend

This weekend we had our multi-family garage sale.  I really do feel blessed that our family is surrounded such amazing people.  I swear these other 3 families are the greatest people on the planet.  Really, I'm not kidding. If you knew them, you would love them too.  We definitely had more business on Friday than we did on Saturday, but I think that was because on Friday we had a lawn full of baby stuff to attract people.  The baby stuff sold really fast which I guess is pretty normal.  We didn't sell any really big stuff, but we did bring drinks to sell.  I think we probably made more for us with the pop and water than we did with our nic nac stuff. 

At the end of Saturday, the other families left me in charge of all their stuff to do with what I wanted.  The good stuff I kept for the YWCA and the rest I gave to Goodwill.  That was how I spent my Saturday afternoon, driving around dropping stuff off.  It was a beautiful weekend for garage sales. It was a little warm but in the shade it wasn't too bad.  Mom said if it was a neighborhood garage sale and people were walking around I probably would have sold more drinks, but I'm still happy with how much we made.  It was also nice to have the weekend off from work.  Friday I took a vacation day from the YWCA and I requested Saturday off from Sears.  I thought I would have to work on Sunday at Sears, but I had that off too.
I sold two of the dolls we were trying to sell for the YWCA, but we still have 4 left.  Do you know a doll collector?  They need a good home. The blue and red one have already been sold.  Click here for more pictures.
