Yard Sale #2

Stix n Brix, NC

Hello to the most recent followers John, Dave, and Jo Beth and Catherine.  Dave has an extensive website and I'm sure we'll meet JB & C at the rv-dreams rally in April 2011. 

Gin has spent the past few weeks pulling stuff out of the cabinets and we had Yard Sale #2 today.  All I can say is...WOW!!  Yesterday we priced everything while it was in the garage.  It was full of stuff.  We got up early to put it in the driveway and of course, someone showed up before we got half of it out there.  It's still dark at 6:30am.  Most of it was gone within the first 45 minutes.  Needless to say, we didn't have time to get a pic of our setup.  They say that Christmas decorations don't sell.  Well, I was very surprised that all of ours sold before 9:00am.  We have kept one little nativity scene for the MH.  Everything else sold by 10:00am (except a puzzle which Gin will enjoy one more time).  We took a couple of pictures of things to put on craigslist in a few weeks.  Hope that goes well too.  We'll do a couple more yard sales next spring to really clear out the house before it goes on the market next summer.  Only 316 days before retirement!!

It's nice to read a fellow blogger and know exactly where they are because you've been there before.  This has happened a few times as we have read Nancy & Bill who live near Myrtle Beach, SC and now with Sherry & David who have just started their full-time life.  I'm so happy for them...and a little envious.  Our day will come before we know it.

Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life's journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.

I think I need to hire you both to do a yard sale for me. You must have the magic touch!

I agree with Mike and Gerri...your day will come, and sooner than you realize. I know it seems a long way off now, but I can remember clearly a year ago when we thought our day would never get here.

Glad to hear you sold so much so quickly. It's really liberating, isn't it?

Doing the yard sale is easy. Pulling things out of my husbands mental grip is a challenge!

Sounds like you both did a good job of letting go.

WOW! That must have been some sale to have been cleaned out by 10AM. Congratulations. Maybe that's a new income for you, writing The Ultimate Garage Sale book.

We're counting down with you!
