Quick Update

Just a quick post to update you on my garage sale.
It was a HUGE success! I sold almost half of my retired sets ... 45 to be precise, ALL of my DP to one sweetheart of a lady, all but one of my retired Scrappin' Kits and lots of punches, wheels and retired ink pads. The best part was meeting some lovely new ladies who share my obsession! LOL
DH was very pleased as well, because he/we sold (got rid of) lots of other things that were taking up room in his garage and at the side of the house. Now he can actually put together the workbench that our children bought him one year when they were both living @ home. Keep in mind that our last child to leave the nest is now a married mother of one!
We did get a torrential downpour at one point that lasted for about 1 1/2 hours, but oddly enough, this is when we had the most amount of people arrive! Picture 6 cars arriving, roughly 20 people jumping out and my dh running around with his golf umbrella trying to keep some very focused ladies dry while they were going through my stamp sets! LOL ... I really wish I had had my camera handy.
I'm off to get my feet up for a while ... It was a very productive but also very exhausting day. I'll try to be back on Monday with some cards to show you.

Good for you on getting a lot of your oldies but goodies gone, making more space, and some extra $$ to get some new goodies (right!). What a sweet guy to be covering people with an umbrella. Sounds like a keeper.

Congratulations on your sale! It has been a long time since I've had a garage sale. I usually don't have the patience for it. Like you though I'll probably be forced into it to get rid of some retiring stuff. Well, maybe in another year or so...

Karen, I'm so happy to hear your sale was a huge success! Did you get in new customers out of the deal! That would be icing on the cake, wouldn't it?!
Go rest and then post us something pretty to look at. Take care!
