Going once, Going twice, SOLD!

My first yard sale experience is done. I learned alot such as:
1] For Jerry the Drunk, anytime of the day is beer o'clock. And when he jumped on his quad and said he was making a beer run, he wasn't kidding.
2] People will buy some of the strangest things. I wish I had taken a picture of the odd two handed stuffed pillow thingy. But it sold.

I had the 8am-10am (on a SATURDAY) shift (why do these things start so early?). It was fun playing "Guess the gestation" game when every pregnant woman came in. I also wanted to stalk people and intimidate them into buying my stuff, but I didn't think that would be good etiquette. So I had to lurk. The stuff I thought would sell didn't, and the stuff I thought wouldn't sell did.

And word on the street is that a shopping intervention is being planned since Aspen's old 0-6 month clothes "allegedly" took up an entire rack. I already told Drew that if Cathy and Michelle show up at the door not to answer it.

It's a good thing your kids are younger than mine, I would be at your door to shop for my kids! There is no down-playing the amount of stuff you had there. Don't even try, Joselle!

It was great seeing you again! Hopefully I will make it to a dinner some day.
