Garage Sale Time ~

It is that time of year again for the annual *GARAGE SALE*. Actually I hadn't had one for years until last year and now again this year, but I aim to make it a yearly tradition . We live just north of a lake and their parade of sales is around the lake tomorrow so we don't have to advertise. People come in droves! I really needed to clean out much more stuff, but hopefully next year I can. It is just so much work getting ready for these sales! Seems more so every year. Maybe it is just my age creeping up on me. Ugh ~

Photo below is some of my closeout signs. I have had so many of these made up and stored up that they just had to go! Sold several today and hopefully the rest tomorrow~
I love this DREAM sign and the chandelier and lampshade with blue roses, but I can't keep everything. They are the simply shabby chic lampshades in the British Rose Pattern~ I told you I have accumulated a *LOT* of stuff! I don't know where this stuff comes! I told someone who stopped today that we should just have a big meet and swap stuff. We sell things at our sales and then go buy more stuff! Funny how that works ~
Scrapbooking goodies that I have wayyyyyyy too much of~
Ribbon and odds and ends...hopefully by tomorrow by about 11 am most of this will be all gone. I can only have the sale for half a day because my neice graduates at 1 pm. I am going to have to really move to get this sale going , closed up and on to the graduation and the open house afterwards ~
P.S. I only showed you the *PRETTY* parts of the sale. I left out hubbies tools and all those gadgets that we have no clue what they are or how they work! LOL
I hope you have a blessed weekend filled with people you love and things you love to do~

So many beautiful things you are selling in your garage sale. Oh, how I wish I lived closer to you. I could help you get rid of lots of it...LOL

Good luck with today's sale and have fun at your nieces graduation.

Oh, I wish I could come to your sale, Sandi! I can't imagine having too much pretty stuff. I *can* relate to having too much guy stuff, though! ♥

Hi Sandi,
I hope you are able to part with this stuff, I know I couldn't. You had me laughing when you said that you all go around and just buy each other's stuff. Yous signs are lovely.

I have *heard* that there are people like you...with an abundance of stuff. LOL I'm just kidding, you know, laughing *with* you...I so have the same problem! And you are right-we all just trade stuff! Some of my best customers are other dealers. I've made signs very similar to those too.
Happy Sunday,
