The 2 Hour Yard Sale
Last night I made $500 in just 2 hours! I work for a vehicle auction as a title clerk, so auctions are pretty standard for me. However, must people relate auctions to repossessed homes and vehicles. I have a friend who works at antique auctions who opened up a miscellaneous sale. Yesterday morning, my husband and I loaded up a bunch of junk from our garage, a large closet in the basement and toys the kids have outgrown. We had a trailer full of stuff to auction off to help my friend jump start her new sale. We went in with the attitude that everything must go no matter what price it brings. The intintion was to create an exciting atmosphere full of great deals for my friend's customers. We wanted everyone to buzz about her new auction and be excited about coming back. We had a blast and made $500 in the process. Plus, we don't miss a thing that we let go. Some things made me cringe a little when the went for a low price. We sold a hockey table for $15 and a 35mm camera for $27. Then, two men started a battle over an ugly green wine bottle with a strand of twinkle lights in it with Georgia Bulldog stickers on the outside left over from my husband's dorm room. The thing was absolutly UGLY. It sold for $12! I will never sit outside on a rainy Saturday or a scorching hot weekend praying for cars to stop at my yard sale again. So gather up your stuff. Find a local auction and make some MONEY!!!
