Okay, I posted this already on SSF, but it petered out. I'm counting on the 64K+ here to help me with ideas. Here's the scoop: I am more than super-excited about an upcoming garage sale. To call it that is probably not correct, but here's what's happening. DH's office "Strip Mall" is planning a Labor Day Saturday garage sale. There 6/7 suites (businesses) participating. The mall is one-story, and we have 40 (non-metered) parking spaces in front, plus the "Bar" on the corner has 20 more, and the "Bar and Grill" next door has about 15 spots. (The Bar doesn't open until 8 PM, and the Bar and Grill is busiest M-F, and might also be partcipating.) Parking is ALWAYS a premium at garage sales here. Champaign/Urbana is one of the (twin)cities were everybody loves to buy at garage sales. In fact, in Urbana (where WE are), a lot of people will buy broken stuff because they: (1) think they can fix it (2) they are being "green" and responsible. I am on CLOUD 9, when I think about getting things I don't want and don't need OUT of important storage places!!! I DON'T even CARE if I get more than a penny/item--just the THOUGHT that I don't have to pay to have these things hauled away gets me singing!!! I'm going to sell clothes, an old spinet, 2 modern nylon tents, some old pots and pans, and few (fugly) knick knacks that I've been given. My list has now grown to include: --old bicycles --dishes and glassware --Christmas decorations Do you have any ideas about what I should look for to get rid of? ANY ideas you have will help!!! I'm STILL too giddy about this to be rational!! We live out in the country, and would NEVER have as many people come and buy our stuff out there.
