For a sale that was supposed to start at 9 am, I had everything outside between 7 and 8, which is when my first and steady customers started arriving. It was supposed to be over at 1, which is when I got a friend to help me carry back inside the heavy coffee table which another friend had helped carry out around 9. So it's still in my home.
Having been more or less in charge of the church yard sale last year, with many hands to help, this felt like such a small endeavor. However, I did all the toting of things outside. I was so grateful to have help when it was over, because by then I was kind of bushed.
I made some new friends. And I got to sit in the shade most of the time! I was so happy to have some things go to new homes where they will be enjoyed.
And I saw the place across the street where a very decrepit garage had been staring me in the face of my living room view for 5 years...and now it's gone!
