2012 Annual Tree Street Yard Sale

Well it's Saturday evening and our annual yard sale
 has come and gone.
 
 
Early Thursday morning I started hauling things
 up from the basement
 to be priced.
I set up a card table in the entry way
 and went to work.
We had lost some things in the flood 
a few weeks back and I was worried
we wouldn't have much.
 
 
When everything was said and done
we had plenty to sell.
 It went straight out onto the porch
waiting to set
 for the next morning. 
 
 
 
We actually had people
 Thursday night
come up on our porch
 to dig through our boxes.
  There are some serious
"Yard Sale Shoppers"
in Johnson City.
 
 
For the last couple of years
 we've sold on Friday
with hopes of getting rid
 of it early.
The big sale is not until Saturday
but we do a
on Saturday
and it takes all our attention.
 
 
This year I put out some of my
Origami Birds...
 
 
Sold some,
 but not enough to say
it was a success.
 
 
No one wants VHS movies,
 at the end of the sale
I was happy to let all I had go
 for $5.
 
 
It was fun, but I'm glad it's over.
Now on to the next thing at
Buttermilk Cottage.
Our Holiday Show
is in nine weeks!

  1. Looks like you had a lot to sell. I remember your Christmas sale. I think that would be so much fun.

  2. Looks like you had a pretty good sale. I just donated a whole bunch of VHS movies. I haven't had one in a long time but the last one I had was hardly worth the effort- xo Diana
