Making the yard sale happen!
Well, I am going forward with the yard sale.. I want to have it July 26th & 27th in my driveway here in Flagstaff. My mother has agreed to visit for the weekend and help us, yay! We will drink brandy all day and sit in the driveway trying to sell off our crap! Maybe we can even have the Nissan brought back up here for the yard sale so we can sell it that same day!
Oooo, maybe our doggies old owner could visit that weekend also! You see we got our Dixie on freecycle and we have always offered to let her old owners visit her except it has been so busy that it has yet to happen. Maybe yard sale weekend huh?
Yesterday I spent the morning out the the shed pulling boxes out, going through them, sorting and putting stuff back into the shed. Amazingly there is not as much crap in there as I thought, still plenty to get rid of but not as bad as I imagined! Here is a slide show of the project:
Now I need to tackle the inside crap, like our spare room- craft room. We had everything we didn’t plan on unpacking (since we only expected to be here 6 months) shoved into the walk in closet in that room. Over the weekend while we were looking for our Harkens souvenir cup we pulled everything out of there that we wanted to sort, consolidate and possibly get rid of… It is a mess, I took some photos just for you!
Now I need some advice about yard sales and moving, got any great pointers? I was thinking about putting an ad about the sale on Flagstaff, Craig’slist. How else can I advertise for the sale? How much cash do you think I will need for making change? Do people barter much at yard sales, if so how much do I charge/ markup stuff? Help me, share your knowledge…
