Rummage Update

June 30th, 2007 at 07:08 pm

Well, it wasn't what I was hoping for, but it was still a good rummage sale. My friend and our kids made a little, and my total profit for the day was $441.

We opted to not run an ad for the sale and run a one-day Sat sale. We basically got the people driving past our house, probably not anyone from the major intersections.

I was surprised that we didn't see more people interested in the baby girl clothes. We have some really nice stuff, even some new with tags.

All-in-all, I'm going to try to be content with what we made. We're thinking about putting out the signs on Wednesday (4th) since our town has hundreds that show up for the parade.

I'm also planning on selling several items on eBay in the near future (vintage 1/2 gallon aluminum cans, Leap Pads and accessories, and maybe even "lots" of the baby clothes).

Our trip next week is paid for, plus some to throw at debt. I'm thankful!

    Congratulations! $400 is nothing to sneeze at. Sometimes if you get too many people; it could discourage you from wanting to do one in the future.

    Great job! Is the trip to see your great-grandma? Best wishes to you and your family!

    Yes, we're going to the area that my great-gramma lives in. We'll be staying about 20 min from the hospital that she's in. Unfortunately she's been fighting pneumonia and a candida infection since last week. Last I heard she seemed to be weakening. So, we're grateful to be going up to see her again.

    We make this trip each summer to visit relatives. My mom and her husband, my grandparents, great-gramma and several aunts, uncles and cousins. We look forward to it every year.

    Thanks to all for the encouragement.

    That's a great profit! I usually clear less than $200. But I am ususally so anxious to get rid of stuff I end up giving it away.

    I am always surprised by what doesn't sell, and what does.
