Impromptu Yard Sale

I spent the entire afternoon and evening yesterday clearing / cleaning my upstairs. The 2nd level is just one large room with a guest bed, some bookshelves and a closet. It tends to be our dumping ground for things that don't have a place in our living area. I gathered oodles of things which will most likely go to Good Will. Since I had to haul this stuff outside anyway, I figured why not try to sell it 1st? The sale wasn't huge but I thought it was pretty good for one day's worth of purging. Apparently no one else thought so.

This is my gross earnings for the day. Yup, $1. I guess I'll be making a trip to Good Will tomorrow...

Not all was lost, I was able to knit for 3 hours in the sun & fresh air.

That's so sad! Sorry to hear the yard sale wasn't a success. Glad you at least got to knit!

I think people don't buy as readily at yard sales as they used to because it costs money to throw things away now. It's not like the old days!

Well I'm glad you cleaned out the upstairs and got to sit in the sun and knit! And purging is always a good feeling.
