Okay, I lied about Friday…I did not return.
But..I have a good reason. I was getting ready for my partner’s garage sale that took place today.
Now, this wasn’t your ordinary garage sale, with knick-knacks and old clothes and glass Coca-cola bottles. We sold a boat, had two trucks for sale, riding lawn mowers, lumber, lighting fixtures, handicapped retro-fit accessories, 5 computers, power equipment, and the list went on. We accepted American Express, Visa, and MasterCard.
At days end we netted over $1700. That was from 6:30 am to a little after noon.
The way I figure it is; if we sold it, we wouldn’t have to move it.
I actually met more people in 4 hours than I have the entire time I have spent in Maryland. Most everyone was friendly. I even met a couple originally from Kentucky, and we both felt “at home” talking to each other. Us Southerners sure know how to bond.
If you haven’t met your neighbors yet, or you like to listen about the lives of other people, my suggestion is to have a yard sale. What you don’t earn in money, you earn in knowledge about the people around you.
