Twas the Night Before the Garage/Craft Sale....

and I'm wide awake! It's midnight and it's storming outside and all I can think about is whether my craft/garage sale signs are going to survive.HAHA! Irv and I put them all up this afternoon. We knew it might rain, so we covered them in plastic. Hope they make it!

I'm really awake because the storm is pretty loud and it woke me up.

We got the garage sale stuff into the garage this afternoon. We set up my craft show tent....and I'm hoping the storms don't get too bad. Sure wouldn't want my tent to blow away! Irv anchored it pretty well, but you just never know. I will set up my craft sale stuff in the morning. It's all priced and ready to go.

Normally on an average weekend, you will see tons of garage sale signs on every corner. Irv and I decided to do this sale sort on a whim this weekend so we didn't run an ad. We figured we would just feed off all of the other sales by putting up lots of signs. Well guess what? There were hardly any other garage sale signs out there! Figures. Just my luck. Hopefully we will still get some shoppers.

Well, the storm is settling down and I really need to get some sleep. My alarm is set for 5:00 a.m. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I'll let you know how it goes!

The spouse and I went for a bike ride this morning m and followed signs to garage sales. The good thing about shopping on a bike is that it cuts down on impulse purchases!

Hope your sales were terrific.

Good Morning,
Wow, I hope you are OK. I know those were some powerful storms and they sure did some damage as they went through South Dakota earlier that evening.

And...we're all anxiously awaiting for a report on how you did at the sale! Have a great day. ~Natalie
