Yard Sale Delight

Standard

Hola! This post is a follow up to my 10 Tips to a Successful Yard Sale post.

I am so excited about this post, I had such a great morning, EXCEEDED my $200 sales goal, had some delicious beverages, and am so anxious to tell you all about it!

First off, my body did this ridiculous thing and woke up at 2:30 this morning. 2:30. No bueno. I didn’t need to be up until 3:20, but once I was up there was no going back down.

So I woke up, came downstairs to find that my mister had set the coffee pot to go off and left me a super adorable note. He’s so great. Had my coffee and my 20 minutes of free time before getting ready and heading out the door. As I left, my dog gave me a serious, “Are you really going to leave me here alone?” look. It was if I had crushed his soul.

I got to my friends house right at 5am and we were able to set everything up and sit back and relax by 6. We even made a new friend along the way.

This furry friend hung out with us all day. Aside from trying to drink our beverages, she was pretty cool. To be fair though, who wouldn’t want to drink this?

These are delicious, by the way. I’ll have to ask her for her recipe. Hands down, one of the best Bloody Marys that I’ve ever had, and I have more than drank my fair share.

So throughout the day we had several visitors, all of which brought a certain “vibe” to the event. We had:

Woman with stinky armpits vibe
Man that was a borederline sex offender vibe (seriously)
Children that wanted to chase our new cat friend vibe
New Granparents that don’t know how to make change vibe
Pregnant with twin girls new mom vibes

All in all though, it was a good turn out, and almost everything sold. Winner Winner!

There was some definite haggling had throughout the day. I’m pretty sure that we got dwindled down too far, but that’s ok. The point behind this particular sale was less about the money and more about clearing out stuff, oh yeah, and then the money thing. Still hate that stuff.

I will say though, walking away with a pile of it made me feel exceptionally accomplished.

After I got home, my dog was pretty convinced that he almost died without me for a whole morning.

Thanks for reading!
