My first yardsale and well i am glad i got it out of the way! And wanted to share with you. I started this weekend not sure what i was in for. Or well if i would even sell anything. It started out much like every other day around my house. Kids were hungry, husband was leaving for work, me no shower and looking a fright. After preparing all my things for months inadvance i was ready to go. It was all going great, meeting all the neighborhood friendly's and out of no where it was like a cattle herd with me and the kids belongings in the middle. That is what you want at a yardsale right? Sure you do, but not planning in advance for every single person with every single item to haggle with you on price will cost you time-it did me:) I had no idea that i would be negotiating 10 cent picture frames . This is new to me! Do not get me wrong i love a good yard sale but shit if it says 25 cents i go with it.... I had some ladies do this today over 10 or 15 cents. I had bikerish kinda guys buying the kids stuffed animals for their puppy, kinda cute right? Nah they must have had like Jack or something in their cokes cause there were a swayin at 2pm in the day. Had one lady that wanted to buy this really big mirror, like huge for her stallion horse(odd kinda?). I visited with more pregnant women in one day the any other in my life.(that is cool). I did my second daughters first lemonade stand and found 3 out 5 prefer Pink lemonade over regular lemonade(She did a great job). I had the pleasure of meeting more than half of the dogs that shit in my front yard.(that is cool to-but i don't have a dog and do not want dog shit:) Today was the only day you will see a Mercedez parked in front of my house, not sure why the rich folk shopped at my yardsale but they did.( We drive cool cars, not luxury cars;) I took lessons in auto sales after the 20th time of asking... "Is your Motor home for sale?" Yes my friends it is a yardsale but no its not for sale. This was only funny after i really considered selling my old car after another guy said .."Hey is that Honda for sale?" Would have left my tattooed bikerish looking husband riding a scooter to work..Haha LMAO. So you see i had alot of fun today and did it all with my family, minus the husband though, to bad for him. He sure missed out on all the funny, weird, crazy things that happen at a yardsale... In our neighborhood! I hope you all have a great weekend:) I will be back Monday with a few new giveaways!!
