Saturday Snapshots

Today was the beginning of week two of our garage sales. Not bad, but I kept myself mostly out of the garage itself, as I was busy in the house.
I started this morning off by getting the boys ready, and then making some breakfast. I don't know why the kids don't love this kinda food as much as I do...bewildering.
Feeling rather fragile, hopefully it'll pass.
Did not too bad on sales, as most of our big stuff left along with our Piano, Console TV, the coffee table, and punching bag. Someone even put a down payment on the washer/dryer. Surprising how many folks we had, but welcome.
When I did sneak down I managed to get a few shots in with the camera, without being too intrusive or annoying to the customers.
It's been a long day for me so far, would really love myself a nap...maybe I'll squeeze one in along the way here.
I need to get some sewing done. Planning on making a bunch of stuff, just need the time to get around to it.
I don't think I'm really made to be a saleslady. The person who bought the punching bag asked me if i would take 20 under the price it was stamped with, and I refused. Mr heckled me for at least a month to get that thing, and ended up not using it. So, I was firm on the price as it was in new condition. He did eventually pay that price, but was disappointed I wouldn't take a cheaper price for it. Oh well. I don't know how people can barter...I'm just not cut out for it. I wonder if I can rent a wheelchair fo rMr while he's in recovery from his surgery so I don't need to do all that work with the customers, LOL.

I love garage sales!! I also love yard sales :) I was very surprised that someone put a down payment on the washer/dryer.

A wheel chair? Oh no, I dodn't know you mr. were sick even... Hope it's not serious.

How was it seeing your things getting new owners? Was it at all sad?
