Thank Goodness that's over!

Was up at sparrow fart to organise our garage sale today.
Finally got all the stuff out of the house and the first guy turns up just after 7.30.
Then they came from everywhere!!!
In the end I was virtually giving stuff away, but I was not going to carry any of it back inside just to have to call someone to take it to the salvos!
Best of all the fridge and the washing machine got sold - these were the only two items of any value and a fellow from a second hand shop gave me a deal to take all the nik naks and china cabinets, so va voom!!!!
I have four old wardrobes to get rid of so will have to get the smith family in to take those and then I can start in on the really hard work....
I was so worried about today I did not sleep half the night, but thank the Gods it all went very well.

Thank goodness you had the common sense to just reduce the price, Renata. Garage sales can be a nightmare! I had a friend that went to an enormous amount of trouble to arrange her wares & ticket them, then refused to haggle, and ended up with an awful lot of it back in her cupboards: she has never used it, and never will!!!!

I can't believe the time that buyers (or lookers) will turn up....

Energy to you xoxoxo

Ont thing that I learned this weekend, amongst others is that once you buy your goods, they become almost valuless to everybody else....w.w
