Will you take 50 cents for that Dollar?
Well, we survived our very first Yard Sale. My parents said that it was a success. Although, now I kind of understand why they have put off having one of their own for at least a decade. It's amazing how people want to bargain down everything. We had folks bargaining down from $3. So, needless to say, we didn't really get our asking price for much of anything except the 50 cent items. I kept reminding myself and all the wonderful folks that helped out (hubby, my parents) that the object was to get rid of stuff. It's hard to see the curtains I paid $80+ go for $5, though. Will I do it again? Maybe. I guess my expectations will probably be more on the money (or the lack of money!) next time. I'm a little disappointed in the monetary outcome, but we did accomplish what I kept saying was the object...we got rid of stuff. So...I guess it may have been a success afterall.
