Come and Get It
We're having a rummage sale this weekend. It's rainy and 38 degrees but we had quite a few shoppers already. We didn't advertise, instead we put up signs on the busy intersections directing people to our garage.
I don't enjoy the setting up process but it's fun when people start to come. Compared to the patients who come to the dental office, rummagers are in a much better state of mind. I get a kick out of shooting the breeze with those who are browsing through our stuff.
We'll probably have the sale again later in the month when the city wide rummage sale is scheduled. I know we'll continually clear out our closets, cupboards and basement as the days go by. I like having plenty of time to decide whether I want to part with my possessions.
I LOVE having more room in my closets and drawers. I feel more in control when I'm not overwhelmed with an abundance of stuff I'm not even using.
Well, I guess I'll go take another run through of the house and perhaps I'll add some things to the sale that will be just what someone else needs.
Update: It's 6:00PM on Sunday. We've been selling stuff since 8:30 yesterday with rain, snow and sleet, although today it's sunny but cool. We made around $190 so far. Not bad, huh?
