Garage Sale Success!!!

Setting up at 5AM on Friday in the dark
My amazing mama, up bright and early to help... thank you!

Jeff (our neighbor) earned some major points in our book for coming outside at 5AM to help set up! We owe you big time Jeff! 
All the kids toys lined up on the sidewalk

Daylight! My partner in crime... LOVE him! Joshua secretly must work in retail, because he was selling clothes like a mad man! 

From about 6:45AM until 11:15AM the people just kept pouring in! 
My wonderful parents were such a help!

The next morning we woke up at 6:30AM to pouring rain and we were sure no one would show up, BUT we were wrong!  6:45AM rolled around and we had our first faithful buyer! We left everything inside the garage just the way we had pulled it all in from the night before and we just let people rummage through boxes. They didn't seem to care a bit! Notice my sweet hubby... he would go meet people at their car with an umbrella and walk them in- such a gentleman! 

I looked out the front door at one point and saw this! The guy literally drove off with this couch hanging out of his car just like this! I'm pretty sure he probably got pulled over at some point! 

Alright, are you ready for this?! Even with one day being rainy all day long we managed to bring in $2121 total in Yard Sale Proceeds!!! Can you believe this?! Such a blessing! We were amazed at the turn out and the success! We want to thank everyone again who donated items for the sale, gave of their time, purchased items at the sale, and stopped by to show their support! We couldn't have done this without ya'll! 

On another note, we had our in-home home study on Sunday and it went super well! I'll post next about that! Stay tuned!


  1. That is wonderful! God is so faithful.

  2. That is so awesome! I prayed you'd have a very successful sale. We had ours on Saturday and we were blessed with $1100 in sales!!

    Blessings to you,
