I'm about ready to pull up the sign and close the garage door. Nobody has come for over an hour and it's almost 5:00.
I opened at 1:00 and between 1:30 and 2:30 it was a mad house. Almost everyone bought something and it was a great way to start the day. There's still an awful lot of stuff here, though. Fortunately, the weather is cooperating since the sun finally came out.
I don't know how much I've made yet but that's almost secondary to getting rid of stuff. I thought about that statement and if that were the case then I would have just given it to Goodwill or Salvation Army. So I guess I do want to make some money.
It's been interesting talking to most of the people who have stopped by. One gentleman, on a BMW motorcycle, said that at one time he'd lived in a 5,000 sq ft house and moved to a 1,500 sq ft condo and got rid of everything. Apparently, he gave most of it away and now he's replacing it all. He bought a number of small things from me, which was a good thing.
Some of my friends from Silver Sneakers have dropped by and I've been very generous with them. I've either given them what they want or dropped the price considerably.
I've gotten lots of positive comments about my bowling ball yard art but I haven't sold any, so far.
My mom was a self-taught painter...a prolific painter and I have the pictures to show for it. I have 30 oil paintings she painted and I don't know what to do with them. I wish they were my style but they aren't. I've gotten past the guilt of wanting to get rid of them, I just don't know how. Any suggestions?
I didn't know a moving sale could be so exhausting. Wait, it's the end of six days of preparation so I take that back. Now that I'm not frantically getting it all together and have relaxed, I've really relaxed. Not quite coma, but I'm getting there. That'll come after I shut the garage door.
No pictures today...sorry. And on that note, I'll close this post.
Loving the sunshine,
P.S. I read this morning where Seattle is probably going to have another rotten winter so my decision to go to Tucson is sounding better and better.
