Community Yard Sale Day

Up at 4:30 am. Had to get up early to feed Hiker, put her out back to go potty, have some breakfast, get dressed and head over to Jean's house by 5:30 am to set everything up for the community yard sale. Took us until just before 7 am to have the “easy-up” in the drive way and set up the tables and put everything out for the sale. It always starts out slow because the people come into the gated community and start checking out the streets down near the guard shack. It takes them about 30 to 45 minutes to start showing up in our area. Then they come in big groups. I made about $55. Didn't sell much of what I had. Mostly made the money from the vinyl albums and 45's that I had. It was funny to see the younger people look at the 45's with a questionable look in their eyes. Don't think they had a clue what they were. I ended up giving most of the other stuff to the charity organization that comes in every year after out sale is over. They sell what we give them and all of the proceeds stay in our city.
It's always fun because all of the neighbors yell back and forth across the streets to each other and many of them sell food and soft drinks.
Hiker was such a good girl. She sat in Jean's garage with me and just watched all of the people milling around. She got to meet quite a few dogs too.
We were lucky in the fact that it didn't really start getting too hot until just before the sale was over.
Tomorrow we rest.

Here's Hiker watching all of the people going by:


  1. WOW. $55 is not bad at all. That's great. Glad you had fun.
