I also complained that Wisconsin was shortchanged on spring this year.
We finally got our spring warm up – all in one day! I was not ready for a 90 degree day,
and the village I wanted to go rummaging in is known to be a bit more on the “wimpy” side.
Alright, they outright complain if it rains or is too windy or they get hot and can’t turn on the A/C in the garage because the door is open. No- not one of those gated communities I got myself in trouble over but the most affluent village in our area.
A well known name that was started as a factory owned settlement.
A 5 star tourist destination.
It was hot. Did I say that? The sellers did not feel they were having fun.
There were a LOT of kids with lemonade stands.
Although people were buying they were not buying the hundred dollar items.
So before 11am sellers were trying to figure out how soon they could crawl back into their air conditioned homes.
Put more items into the FREE boxes!
The rules of a great garage sale include putting large items on the driveway where they can be clearly seen by those driveby shoppers, display as much at eye level as possible, and have a
bonus box of free items for your shoppers.
I did a lot of free box shopping on Saturday.
The first item — would you have picked this up?
I’ll give you a hint.
Well, sort of. I was too short to hang it where I want it.
I have heard there are some people who think time is too precious to spend returning things.
I would have found a use for it in the garage.
The next thing you know I could not pass up.
An entire educational course on cheese.
Other finds this weekend included 6 T-shirts for a dollar, left overs from a charity event.
(Plus 4 more T-shirts from the free box there.)
Some free fabric. No one ever throws buttons into free boxes.
Some other unusual items I will post later this week, one perfect for Junker Newbie’s Wednesday hop Would You Buy It.
After drinking some lemonade and walking around in the heat you know it was time for lunch and a potty stop. (Oh you must click that link.)
A few miles down the road a youth group was hosting a vender fair. Later this week I will be posting for ATG’s Dream Share and another hop about creating success. Some people choose to do it with party or vender sales. Please come back and read that post.
The youth group was also selling hot dogs for $1. Just as we walked in the door prices were reduced to 4/$1. We had to make a charitable contribution and took hot dogs home to eat today as well. I did say I had to bring food home!
A new to me Thrifty Thursday blog hop.
