You know how I said I was never going to have another garage sale ever? Well, we had so much fun having it that I would almost consider doing it again. However, I have no plans to accumulate that much stuff again. We made a lot more money than we anticipated thanks in part to one of our first customers who bought almost $400 worth of stuff! Also, what a feeling to load the rest of the trappings of our old suburban life into the back of the car and drop it at the nearest donation center. While all of that was great, the highlight of the weekend was definitely the friendly people.
Well, that and Emma's bake sale! No more lemonade stands for her. She found her calling. I loved that people came up to her and talked to her like they knew her because her name was on her sign. She was very professional and prepared. Her packaging was adorable and all of her female customers really appreciated it. I think this girl has a future ahead of her. I'm thinking there is a Mom and Daughter shop in our future.
