Canada Day, eh?

Hi there!

To me, nothing says "Canada Day" more than going to a great Garage Sale!

Most communities even have "Community Garage Sales" organized, on July 1st!!!

Well, Gilbert and I had been preparing for our Garage Sale, since January, I do believe. We had been sorting out and putting aside "stuff" to sell, on July 1st.

Road signs were placed...

We even had a section for "Free Stuff"!

Here's the table with a lot of pre-packaged grab bags of fabric and other crafty items.

Here's Gilbert's table of computer and electronic "stuff"...

Why, even my car was up for sale!!!

Well, all in all, it wasn't as successful as we had hoped, although I DID hand out a few Longarm quilting business cards! One quilter said she was VERY interested!
*keeping fingers crossed*

Anyhow, from 8 a.m. till 1h30 p.m., our total sales added up to $17.50.

We WILL re-do this, but on a Saturday. Maybe too many people left the city? Maybe they were too busy, with other Canada Day festivities?

Who knows, eh?

*off to bed*

If I had known, aI would have stopped by. I love fabric grab bags and computer stuff... But then again, I'm a few miles away, I'd have to plan my border crossing and probably find a place to rest for the night.. Happy Canada day!!!
