Yard Sale Saturday....

We had a yard sale today!  It was a neighborhood yard sale. 

I hadn't had a yard sale in 10 years.  Wow, I forgot how much work they were!  Luckily our good friends lent us a couple of banquet tables....they came in very handy!  Thanks R & K!


It was raining at 8AM when it started, but the buyers were not the least bit daunted.  We sold most everything the first hour of the sale.

I am pretty sure I won't be having any more yard sales...lol.

p.s. if you missed it...the two previous posts were the tutorial on how I recovered the French settee.
Welcome Home,
Penny

  1. Why is it that I only find the yard sales with old toys, baby clothes and moldy camping equipment? I may need to blog about this!

  2. If you were selling what it looks like you were selling, I can imagine it all went the first hour. I'm sorry I could not stop by! (a couple of hour commute...) Glad it was successful in spite of the rain!

  8. I could easily sale a lot of stuff, but just too much work. I will just keep taking mine to the consignment store. She charges a lot anyway so I end up making more money.

  9. I agree that yard sales are a lot of work; how great you sold almost everything right away.

  10. I wish I had taken time to drive up to your house. You didn't tell me you were selling so many things I loved from you house. I'm glad you got rid of the things you wanted to. I still take mine to Goodwill because I know they help people who couldn't otherwise find jobs employment.

    Hugs, Gretchen

  13. Hi Penny! Oh, I hope your yard sale went well. Now I see lots of great looking stuff and dishes! Why can't I ever come upon a yard sale like yours. I know they are so much work. My hubby is thinking we need to have one before it gets too hot! :)
    Be a sweetie,

  14. My sister and I went garage shopping today (in Florida) and I found a cloche and a silverplate champage bucket, but NONE of the sales we went to looked even half as nice or organized as yours. We are headed to NC after Easter and hope to get to meet you.

  18. so sad you don't live in my area....saw the stacks of dishes and my heart began pounding...

    for some reason, since i moved to the pnw, i've had a hard time finding good "stuff" at garage sales and thrift stores...

    never have seen a garage sale as lovely as yours...

  22. Penny, good for you getting everything sold! I swore the last time we had a garage sale I would never have another one! It is alot of work!

  23. I have a good friend who is always having yard sales. She once sold her car at a yard sale! Hope you made lots of $:-)

  24. I sure agree with everyone, you had one heck of a yard sale! Certainly not like the ones around here. I really don't go to them much anymore because you just can't find anything worthwhile. I would rather go to the Goodwill. BUT, I absolutely would have stopped at yours!

  25. I can see why almost everything sold so quickly. Wow, what amazing stuff, um I think you are supposed to sell less beautiful things....

    There are more then a few items I wouldn't have hesitated to pick up myself.

  32. I can see why you sold most of your things in the first hour. You had some wonderful things, Penny.

    Every so often I think about having another garage sale. Thank goodness the thought is only fleeting. I don't think I have the stamina, these days.:-)

  33. Glad the sale was a success although I'm not at all surprised given the quality of your items. Most garage sales here = junk.
