I haven’t had a garage sale so I didn’t really know what to expect….I certainly didn’t expect that we’d have so many friends wanting to put stuff on the sale that we’d need a tent.
I didn’t expect that we’d have 40-50 people waiting to get into the garage Thursday night when the sale opened-with cars of people that came 45 minutes early just sitting on the street waiting for it to open.
This photo was taken Saturday after most of the stuff was gone..yep the inside of the garage was full too!!
I didn’t know how good my girls would be at helping….
I didn’t think ahead about how to handle all the left overs….
and I certainly didn’t expect anyone to make a HUGE drive to see us and to buy a book! Mary Jo drive from LaCrosse to purchase a book. HOW SWEET WAS THAT?!?!? For those of you who don’t know…that’s about a 2 hour drive! At the time she came Kelli and Kalissa had quarantined me to the house so I wouldn’t spread my germs. Kelli came in and said Mom..you need to come out here…I did and what a sweet surprise! There was Mary Jo a faithful blog reader. As much as I wanted to give her a big hug I didn’t…I didn’t want to spread the yuck!
After chatting a bit and sending her along with directions to a couple quilt shops including the one we love in Postville I was sent back into the house back under quarantine. Mary Jo spend her previous day garage saling. She was telling us about the 100 mile garage sale along the Mississippi river that Kelli and I had always thought about going on…and about cheese shops, quilt shops, and pie shops along the way. Seriously, we really want to go now…THANKS so much for stopping Mary Jo!! Your visit meant a lot to both me and Kelli.
Everything is almost back in place…I am just SO-SO glad it’s over…and no, I don’t plan on having one soon.
