the first Williams yard sale
Our neighborhood had a community yard sale today that we participated in. It is actually our FIRST and only yard sale we have done as a married couple. It wasn't bad...I wish we would have sold more. A lot of things I thought WOULD go, didn't. I'm going to try and Craig's list a few things this week. I'm $133.65 richer than I was when I woke up this morning. :) We set up with another family right beside us and three of the 4 of the homes in front of us were participating as well. I think it helped get us the most traffic. The interesting news was that I had set my alarm for what I thought to be 6AM but was woken up by Harrison at 7AM. Guessing the alarm was set for PM. BUMMER!!! Woke up panicking because the yard sale STARTED at 7AM. Anthony and I were running outside in the clothes we slept in trying to get our stuff to the street to meet the masses....that didn't arrive for another 30 min. :) Made for a fun start to the day!
Harrison and Jackson had a bake sale. Andrea made muffins for them to sell and I made cookies. They were a hoot! It helped them feel like they were a part and boy did they show off their selling skills. Their daddy was proud! :) They made $7.00!
Addison just hung out and enjoyed herself until she headed back inside for a nap. Perfect little Angel! :)
