Not The Brightest Idea!

Being the only day that was feasible, I decided to have a yard sale this morning. Why did I pick the only day in North Texas that it decides to be 43 degrees with hideous winds???? I pulled out all my daughter's stuff (she moved in a room with her sister because of new little bro), and proceeded to sit outside wrapped up in a blanket (with my orange creme cappucino) and sell, sell, sell! I sold $2 worth of stuff, which caused me to break even for the $0.97 signs I bought at Wal-Mart, that blew off into the sunset. Hence, only one sale, because my advertisement is somewhere in the prairie fields of North Texas by now!!! Anyhoo, now I know to only have garage sales when the whole subdivision has one. You live and learn! :)


  1. Hi Diva. I've tried to have yard sales and they never turn out right. My friend has one every week and always sells over 100 dollars. I don't know how she does it. By the way, how did you get those flowers on the side of your blog? Looks real nice. Have a great Sunday.

  2. I'm sorry your sale wasn't a success! I can't believe how cold it got. Brrr...

  3. Wow! That's funny! Sounds like something that would happen to me :). I am just not a "sales" kind of person. Better luck next time.

    Please feel free to visit my blog anytime. You are always welcome in The Shadow of the Cross.
