Well then you would know how I felt on a cold and rainy Saturday morning, when at my garage sale, I had five -- count'em five -- visitors and made less than $10.
Of course I'm a little bit discouraged by this, mostly because I think I've become one of "those" garage sales. You know, the ones that are held on a somewhat regular basis and as soon as you see the address, you know that you've been there before and that there wasn't much there.
Well, at least I didn't have a bunch of baby crap.
But rather than dwell on the depressing, maybe it's time for a reality check.
So let's look at the positives.
First, there's a lot more room in my basement. Which makes Mr. VS very happy.
Second, I feel liberated by letting go of what had become a lot of clutter. For me, figuring out what to buy for resale has been a learning process. Believe me, I learned a lot from Saturday's sale.
Mostly that I hate having garage sales.
So it's time to move on and take the leftovers to the thrift store (hence all the paper bags in the first photo). Next on my agenda is sorting, photographing and listing Christmas ornaments. And that should keep me busy for quite some time.
Did I mention that I have a lot of ornaments?
