THE WEEKEND EDIT +GARAGE SALE SHENANIGANS
As I type this week’s Weekend Edit am I sitting on my porch steps overseeing our garage sale. A lady who was interested in my glass jars asked me if I had them in black?
Let me check in the back. #snarkyseller
There is something about making $15 on a chair I paid $145 two years ago. I love it when I have a $2 dollar sticker on an unopened box of glasses from Homegoods and someone asks if I will take a dollar.
I should mention I bought my neighbor’s china for $20 and a set of glass bowls. They are hiding in my dining room hutch.
What are your stories bout garage sales?
- This DIY fire bowl looks like a fun outdoor addition.
- I am reading Where the Forest Meets the Stars for book club. I really like it, but I don’t think it is for everyone. I can’t wait to discuss at book club.
- This is perfect for a cozy deck or tiny corner of your yard.
- Here are 100 ways to change your life.
- Now that I sold my stuff I bought this for a tiny corner in my backyard.

I got a good chuckle from your yard sale shenanigans! Soon after my husband & I were married, we had a garage sale. He had a 1970’s light blue, shiny polyester track suit that I suggested (quite strongly) he part with, 😉 My sister came to assist with the sale & she & I both laughed & said that track suit probably wouldn’t sell. The ironic thing? The track suit was one of the FIRST items to sell, to a pudgy older fella who we saw wear that track suit for years afterward! My sister & I could barely contain our laughter as we sold it, but it was my husband who really got the last laugh!
Love this Shirley! I know right? The things you think will go first you leave on drive with a “free” sign.
Whenever I hold a yard sale, I swear I never will again 🙂 For exactly all the scenarios you mentioned! Also when it is 5:30 am and I am trying to get my tables set up, people show up and start trying to follow me into my garage to “see what else you have” Ugh. We are holding one next Saturday and I am already dreading it! First time in 2 years.
Love that list! I wish our neighborhood did a big yard sale. Maybe I need to organize it!
Yes! It is a social event!
