A very large garage sale is now in the rear view mirror and all that's left is boxing up the remnants and sending them off to the auction and a non-profit organization. This is the most we've seen of our garage in years. That part is a breath of fresh air. Every time I came home and opened the garage door or took our dog outside, the mountain of stuff was staring me in the face. We live in a neighborhood and when our garage doors were open, the passer by-ers would look and probably thought we were a bunch of hoarders.
I held plenty of fun building supplies from the sale to keep for our personal projects for our home. There will be plenty of blog material for years to come.
The garage sale was fun(once the work was done and it was all set up and priced). The St. Cloud dealers were enjoying themselves, making piles and calling friends to come. One lady said she ran a few red lights to get here faster. People came back multiple times and found more treasures. I'm not sure who was happier, our customers for their fun finds, or our family to watch it leave the premises. Hubby took a few hours off of work to help with the morning rush of customers.
Now the real work begins... going through our home room by room, every closet, cupboard and drawer. Deep cleaning! When you own your own store, things get a little neglected around your own home. Think I'll start by putting the apple blossoms and Mr. Bunny away that was part of my spring/Easter decor.
Lora and I have been trying to get our feet under us since closing the store, but we've both had family and extended family things come up lately. We are excited to continue the blog and bring you fresh ideas, so please be patient with us. We love our blog readers.
