Despite our pressing medical issues and with the help of my mother and father in law, we had a very successful yard/garage sale this past weekend. It was time to get rid of some of the overload in our home. I was not reluctant at all to get rid of any of the junk we were selling except....some of my Elvis collectibles. My husband more or less talked me into it...he was right, the memorabilia had been sitting in a closet for years, collecting dust. I will never fall out of love with the King, but I had fallen out of love with the items sitting in our junk room closet.
Luckily after a complete clean out of the junk room and garage, we had a lot of items to sell. We sat up Friday and Saturday morning. We stayed open until 6pm on Friday and 3pm on Saturday. We did pretty well, we walked away with just over 700 bones! All of my Elvis items were sold within the first 2 hours we opened on Friday! They were bought by people who I know would cherish them!
Having the yard/garage sale was very beneficial financially and it was better than sitting around all weekend griping at each other about how much pain we were in! lol Although we did pay for all of the bending, stretching and squatting all weekend on Sunday. I learned that herniated disks are no joke and you should rest as much as possible! But hey, we had fun and made some extra $! My husband thoroughly enjoyed himself. He definitely has the gift of gab! ;) What a charmer!
I hope everyone had a terrific weekend and found some great goodies out and about!
