Garage Sale Extravaganza

Garage Sale Glamour Gals........
Well, I wish I could say that our garage sale was a huge success & that I have oodles of money to send to Bill & Lynsay. And too bad I can't blame our sad little sale on the lack of shoppers on a very cold day but the truth is, there were lots of people who stopped in! Inventory was our problem...a lack of it. I brought the most stuff I guess...my mom had just recently donated a bunch of her stuff to a women's shelter, so she didn't have much, my sister Dana sold a lof of goodies in a garage sale she had earlier in the fall when normal people do such sales but she did bring a few things and my sweet sister Robin leads a busy, busy life and just couldn't fit it into her schedule to bring her junk, I mean treasures...though she did stop by because she can't stand to miss out on a good time with us!


An annoyed Nick that he only made $2!! And he is also unhappy about being sucked into a sister to sister conversation.
So, anyhoo my grand total was $89.56! The saddest part about that is, I personally only sold like $20 worth of stuff and the rest of $$ came from my very generous mom who gladly kicked in when she found out where the money was going. I so much wish I was sending 10x that amount but it is what it is and God will bless it no doubt!

Lucy and Ninny mostly stayed inside playing with the obnoxious amount of toys she has collected for her grandkids. They had a tea party with friends and went sticker-crazy in the craft section.
Dana and I had a blast even though so many customers walked away empty handed (I even had hot chocolate and Little Debbies for sale!). At one point we were playing 20 questions and Dana discovered something new about me....that I have a vast amount of useless trivia stored away in my fuzzy-haired brain. Perhaps Jeopardy is in my future (uhh, no don't think so...I do not think well under pressure...just in my parents' garage on a cold November morning).


Dana was constantly shifting the goods around to highten their appeal. And at one point her driveway display was caught by the wind and the Lite Bright that she had just marked down 50% flew off the table at which she leapt out of her chair as if her first born had just flown away.





Here Dana has shamelessly resorted to raw sex appeal to sell these lovely chairs...


Then Robin dropped by and we shared some laughs. I promised my gals that I would most certainly airbrush the pics before posting them to my blog but my airbrusher is broken so just know that we really do look better than this when digitally enhanced.





It was a fun, fun day.

I am so jealous (I know it's a sin) I wanted a sister growing up and you have many....actually you have more than you need - so pass one over...

Looks like you had lots of fun...wish I could have come and I would have bought the Lite Brite...I always wanted one when I was little and NEVER got one...but am thinking for Isaiah when he gets his casts on...

Miss you girlfriend! xo

That is so fun to see you all together! Especially after all this time - wow! Of course, you have a great gene pool 'cause no one looks a day older than the last time we were face-to-face. Looks like you at least had fun even if you didn't rake in the big bucks!
Hugs,
