Is it just me, or do those long weekends go by way to fast? Maybe it’s true, the older you get, the faster the time flies.
I got caught up in some “garage sale fever” on Saturday. Let me just start by saying I’ve never really got it. I’ve never understood the need to get up early on a weekend and hit the streets to look through other people’s junk. I even know a lot of people that literally map out their day the night before!
That being said, 2 of my neighbors were having a sale on Saturday, and my one neighbor asked if he could use my old patio table to display his junk, er, I mean stuff on. I said to him “why not take the table, along with the old umbrella and the old 4 chairs that I no longer want (as I have had the new patio set now for over a month and didn’t really know what to do with the old set) and see if you can sell it and we’ll split the profits?
Guess what? That old set sold in about 10 minutes for $40! I couldn’t belive it!
My neighbor then asked if I had anything else to sell. Sure enough, I’m expecting a new dining room set to be delivered this week and didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with the old set…..so I grabbed the wrench, took the table apart, hauled it and the 4 chairs across my alley and wouldn’t you know it? Within 15 minutes it too had sold!
I’m pretty sure not all sales go this good! I’m 2 for 2 – and now officially retired from the world of garage sales. At least until my neighbors let me “piggyback” their next sale
