Well, this was the big neighbourhood yard sale Saturday. Approximately 50 households in our local neighbourhood had yard sales. I can’t really verify this number as we were so involved with our own one and the one across the street and Susan’s yard sale a few blocks away. Yard sale roamers were numerous, actual customers were a select few. It was fun and we met many interesting people. And it was a good chance to organize and clean out. I held fast to non-garage sale prices for my handknits, not that I really had many potential buyers at any price. We had a lively atmosphere thanks to the household across the street who not only had a huge miscellany of items for sale but also had a barbecue and numerous friends coming and going all day as well as the casual yard sale shoppers. I think we benefitted from the spill-over.
not much for sale really – my first customer offered me $1 for 2 books which I had priced at $2 each. Well, there we were. My reaction was “no”. And off she and her partner went in their convertible. I wondered if this was a bad start!! Subsequent customers were more fun.
