The yard sale went okay. I didn't sell nearly as much as I had hoped, but I did get rid of a lot of little things. I still have the bed & most of the furniture that I started with, which is very surprising since furniture is usually the first thing to go at yard sales. I've posted much of it on Craig's List as well, so there is still hope that I will soon be bed-less.
I was ready at 7:00am, signs posted & tea a-brewing. But no one even came by until 8:00am - another surprise. It wasn't that there were cars passing by but not stopping. There was absolutely no traffic on the street until 8:00am. I figured that most people would be out early to beat the heat, but it seems not. However, once they did start showing up, many people were glad that I held the sale inside.
All told, I think I can call this one a success.
I'll have another yard sale soon, so if you have things that you want to unload, bring them over!
Total earnings, Yard Sale #1: $100
