Ahh, life's accumulation of STUFF! Today is our big day. Its Yard Sale weekend. Everything must go! Last year, we were renting this very large home where we were free to spread out all our things & not pay any attention to how much STUFF we actually had. Last fall, as many of you know, we bought this adorable little old house & began the process of down-sizing. There is only two of us for goodness sake. How on earth did we ACCUMULATE all this stuff. A lot of it happened the day we got married, suddenly we had TWO of everything. TVs, microwaves, dishes, coffee makers, etc. We managed to GIVE most of that away but still, all the knick-knacks & doo-dads that us women can stock pile like its going out of style. Its insane!
The morning was a whirlwind of people. Being a small summer-town, we have mostly seniors here. Lots & lots of people showed up early! Lawrence put up my bright pink signs that he strategically put arrows on & people could find us from just about any street! Balloons are along our fence so they know they've got the right house!
Yard sales are a great way to meet people. Especially if you're selling books, as books can tell you a lot about people. Both of us have gone to Bible School & University in the past so we had a lot of books out. The history books went quick as did many of the Christian books. Lots of conversation starters when you sell anything Christian. We were "God Bless You"'d many times today when books were purchased.
Seems our nice weather is past now & it may be time to pack things in as the morning is past & shoppers have gone. Just hoping the rain will hold off a little longer. Ah, I see more people coming down the driveway. Off I go again! Happy Yard Sale Season to you all!!
