Bill setting up tables.
This year we didn’t have a whole lot to sell. We did have some glassware, records, and cooking utensils from Nancy’s mom as a result of her move to her new apartment. Most everything was priced under $2.00, so we weren’t expecting much.
Bill and Bill...boys will be boys!!
Nancy had to work at Home Depot, so I recruited our friends Chris and Bill Jordan to help me with the sale. The official start was at 8am, but there was a parade of early birds cruising the neighborhood before 7am looking for people setting up. Their intent is to get the first shot at the stuff.
Set up and ready to sell!
Bill and Chris -- the official sales team!
For about 3 hours we had a steady stream of shoppers...a buck here and a buck there. When the sale was over I loaded up the car and took all the remaining unsold items to the local Salvation Army. They were thrilled with the donation and I was thrilled to get rid of the stuff. Nancy and I had agreed that the items not sold were NOT coming back in the house…THEY DIDN’T!!
We ended up netting $150 profit and will split it with Nancy’s Mom. Not bad for getting rid of junk we didn’t need. I’m just REALLY glad it is over!! Now if we could just get this house sold… I did show it a couple times today… Just need an offer!!
