I saw that huge Barbie and nearly jumped out of my skin. Thought it was a dead body there in the back seat. Had to take a closer look. Felt like CSI. What a relief it was a 36 inch tall Barbie. Wow! Had a reasonable day tho the weather really sucked. Many customers thanked us for being open as the true yard sales had to cancel due to the bad weather. Wish we had a space heater like some rich peeps we know. LOL! G5
PS Didja ever notice that on CSI they ALWAYS examine a room for clues with their little flashlights? They hold the flashlights upside down near their shoulders. I always scream out at the TV: Turn on the lights, you idiots! There is electricity!

Auntie J,

G5 , lol, yeah i always talk to the t.v. too and tell them to turn on the lights.
hope ya'll don't need yer clothes rack til it quits raining. I'll bring it over then.

poodles, I still have the boxes. I only had 10 bucks each on them and no one bought them. How rude!!

Soul, all that crap wasn't mine . Aunt lou Lou came with her car FULL of stuff too.

Happy Sunday y'all!!

It looks like it was a hell of a sale...and yes, I have to agree, having a garage sale takes WAY too much time and energy..for the return. On the other hand, what do you DO with all the stuff, if you don't have one? You can't just throw things away these days, it costs alot. So, I will be having one the end of next month....UGH.

I like the jewelry boxes, I love things like that. Don't think I have a need for a big barbie, and why does having one make me giggle? Good hell...

Hope you are resting up today!

I think I have avoided having a yard sale by having the "swap" party a few weeks ago. It was a lot of fun, and when it was over, we loaded the stuff up and took it to the Goodwill. EVERYONE said they had a blast. Nobody made any money, but then again, we didn't spend any for all the stuff we brought home either. BTW, since I took the most, I brought home the least. I got a blouse, and a couple of small things. Ah, it was great.

AND YA BETTER SAVE ME THEM BOXES.. PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE......

Jamie, since I have been working on this yard sale ...since new years, I figure I made about an 8th of a penny per hour of work. lol

I still have two truck loads left (one of which is cook books) they are all going to the cat shelter thrift store ,as soon as it quits raining.

I don't have money to donate to 'em ....so this will make me feel good.

And ,hey, i made enough for a rehearsal dinner at mcDonalds. Woo Hoo!!!

When I was a kid ,I probably would have loved that Barbie. now ,it sort of creeps me out.

Myoh, I would LOVE to have one of those "clothing swap" parties,but everyone I know is completely different ,in sizes. So we'd all be just drooling over clothes that wouldn't fit us. Then taking back everything we brought. Ack!!

Guess, I'll just have to have a drunken slumber party instead. lol

BTW, are you gonna be able to come for "girl week"?

Poodles, I got the boxes saved for ya. :)
