Day Two...

Today got off to an agonizingly slow start! I even made my son drive out to make sure our signs were still up-that's how slow it was! A couple of people trickled in here and there and it didn't really pick up until around 10:30. It was steady until around 1:30, then it died down again and a few trickled in until I closed up early at 3:30.

The shoppers today bought more quantity than yesterday. I had my biggest individual sales today. With it being slower, I got more time to chat with people and it was really nice! I loved hearing about the way they were planning to use the things they were buying-so many creative people and fun ideas! I wish I could see how the bathhouse wedding reception, the Italian themed wedding reception and the green bottles with the melty candles all turn out!! I should have begged them all to send me pictures!

I posted pictures on facebook (my personal page) that I took last night and I've been bombarded with friends who've been shopping from their couches wanting to know prices, and exact sizes of things they've seen in the pictures! From those pictures I've sold a metal hamper, picnic basket, bench, dresser, and maybe a couple of washboards!!

So, if you're having a sale, take good pictures, and post them to your personal facebook page-your friends might arm chair shop too! I just took some better up close pictures and put them up-maybe I can sell a few more things between now and tomorrow!

So many dealers have stopped in the last two days! Many of them had booths in the past at the same mall where mine was. Only one had hers there the same time as mine. She closed hers too recently. I bet there will be a bunch of hankie rack,s like the one I use, popping up all over the place-so many people commented on it!

I was hoping a dealer would scoop up the pink mod podge cabinet, but so far not yet. Lots of compliments on it though.

Tomorrow is just a short day-we have an outdoor wedding to go to. It's supposed to be gorgeous! Good thing she picked this weekend and not next! Next weekend the forecast calls for storms all weekend!

I shopped my own sale again...

I could kick myself for selling the other pieces in the booth 3 years ago-what was I thinking?!?!


  1. What a great sale! I wish I were closer! Oh my goodness. Love the white cabinet. I could do alot with that one! What did you sell it for?

  2. I still have it. I have $200 on it. I got an offer of $100, but someone else is liking it, so I passed on the offer. It's pretty unique, and it came from my neighbor's estate's going to be hard to let it go! I probably should have taken the offer...

  3. I want those head vases. Oh the torture of not living closer. Lol. I hope it's a good morning for you.

  4. I would have shopped your garage sale! Love the big white cabinet and a few small treasures!
    I had my garage sale too on Thursday, best day and Friday until 2, slower day. Between all of us in the garage sale (4) we made over 1,000.00 a FIRST!!! Very happy and then took a SUV load to the thrift store! It was very HUMID yesterday...I'm going to take another load to thrift store this week! MUST get the house ready for the bridal shower on the 14th!!!
