Yard Sale!

When our upstairs neighbor moved out a couple weeks ago, she left nine bags of clothing to us to do whatever we wanted with them. They are mostly her daughter's clothes, and a bunch of baby clothes. Since we have no need of these things, we figured we would have a yard sale and sell what we can, before donating the rest. We're also going to try to sell the girl's bike, a barbell with weights, and the smoker they gave us, all priced at "make an offer ( we're selling the clothing for fifty cents an item.) It starts bright and early tomorrow morning, as soon as I can get change from the bank. Hopefully, I can make a liquor store run, too. Because what's a yard sale without beer? Of course, this will cut into my MyLot time, but I won't be ignoring you, I'll be busy selling stuff (hopefully.) Have a great weekend!

No, actually it was a disaster. A holiday weekend in Manitou is definitely not a good time to hold a yard sale.

@NJChicaa - It was free, and we don't really use it that often.

Is there a consignment shop in your area? We consign a lot of our outgrown baby/toddler clothes.

I'm really not aware of any consignment shop here, although I'm sure that there are some.

I hope it goes well for you. I agree - try to get a little for the items and then donate the rest. .50 per item clothing is a good deal.

A yard sale can be great fun or a ton of work! For us, if we are making money, we don't mind the work at all.
