Newell just called me crazy, saying the sun wasn’t up yet, and what was I doing getting up at 6:00 AM? Doesn’t he know people start coming for a Garage Sale VERY early in the morning? And my stuff is still sitting in the hallway, not outside… Silly man!
Anyway, about to go set up. I will post results as soon as I give up. 😉
UPDATE ONE: So, I was set up by 7 AM, I think…thereabouts, and just gave up about 1 PM. Too bloody hot out there. Why is it so blame hot in May…? (No, please don’t answer that… 🙂 )
Rearranged things pretty much constantly all day as holes appeared or the shade moved. Hot, tired, and ready to collapse. Was it worth it? $42 and a handful of change, plus I spent $5 next door on a really cool gadget my neighbor Kathleen had — it is a micro fridge that can plug in to the wall or the car. I am expecting to get a lot of use out of that when my Office is functional. And I treated her to a cup of lemonade that the little girl two doors down was selling, so that is another 50 cents. I made sure to have a glass of ice water the rest of the time, and I am still working on it now…really sweaty out there.
All in all, considering that most of my stuff was priced at 10, 25, or 50 cents, and that I had a couple of barterers and flat out gave a few things away, I think I did all right.
Pictures, or it didn’t happen, right? Here ya go:
Initial set up Bargain bins
Books — sold ONE all day — and Videos Soaps and Office Stuff –sold Menorah
Mostly cards Old software and hardware
Moved books hoping it would help…didn’t. Sold both boxes for $15. Tired of them!

Hot, tired, and HAPPY to be done! Final take
There’s another one in October. 🙂
