Getting Ready for a Garage Sale!

I spent the whole day (after a couple quick garage sales this morning) cleaning out the garage and hauling junk treasures out of the house, barn and basement. My youngest son helped me for a few hours, and we got a lot of stuff piled up ready to be priced and put on tables. I had to quit because my back started screaming. I have so much surplus booth stuff stashed in so many places, I didn't know how much I actually had!!

There is still a ton of stuff in the barn and a spot in the basement that is about 10 x 10 that is packed with dressers, bins of glassware, chairs, stools and milk cans. Most of the stuff is out of the closet in the spare bedroom, and all of the stuff that was in the garage is pulled out of the hiding spots and ready to be sold.

I think I'm going to have to go with what I've got in there right now,and add more stuff in as space becomes available. It could be a new sale every day! We won't be parking in the garage for a while-that's for sure! I was planning to have the sale next weekend, but I'm not sure I can get it all ready in time!

Tonight, I am thankful for Chinese restaurants with a drive thru and a son willing to drive!

I'm stressing about the first day of the sale, I don't have anyone to sit with me to answer people's questions or help people who are shopping... We usually have huge crowds on the first day of our garage sales, so more than one person is pretty much needed. Maybe I can talk my mom into coming down for a couple of days...


  1. Oh I hope your Mom comes to help! People get so pushy and seem to come all at once. Good luck!

  2. Good luck with your sale. Wish I lived close enough to shop! But I do agree that you are going to need help. There was no way I could have done our last sale alone! It can get crazy :-)


  3. I would love to shop your sale! Looks like good stuff so far.

    I try to always do my yard sales when I know someone can sit with me, because it can get very overwhelming doing it by yourself!

  4. Wow... I want to shop your sale -(especially the red bench and telephone table bench - I want them :) ) And the canisters way up high!!!
