I managed my first yellow block, and chose to do the Road to Tennessee block this time.
Linking up with Angie at Soscrappy. Go on. Take a look at what the others have made this week.
We were up at sparrows this morning to set up for the garage sale. We couldn't anything much last night because the area we set up in was not secure.
Bunting on the telegraph pole and on the car port.
Miss 11 did the 3 signs for me. Two were out on the main road and this one was facing the traffic coming down our street.
It was a totally miserable day. Raining until about 11.30, and cold! Didn't deter the bargain hunter who arrived at 6.50am just after we had started setting up, and while it was still dark!
We (my daughter & I) set up in the paved area at the front of the house because there was more room than in the car port. It was also sheltered from the rain.
Looking from my daughter's end up towards mine. We had about half the "stuff" each.
This is from my end.
The result was pretty disappointing. The ad was not in the paper, so we relied on the Second Hand Saturday list on the Council web site (which was hard to find), and the signage on the road. Plus the rain was off putting I'm sure. Not a good return for the hours spent on sorting, pricing and set up. The best customers came when we sent Miss 13 up to the main road to wobble board. We sold more in the 45 minutes she was up there than in the entire morning! We packed up at midday. Well you live and you learn.
I shall have to make a decision on what to do with the remainder (the bulk of it!)
So til next time.....Keep on stitching
