What a flurry of activity recently On Crooked Creektt!
"Mr. Ed" and I held our first TAG $ALE!
Having resided on the East Coast in Aberdeen, Maryland
during the first year of "Mr. Ed's" Military Career,
we frequented many a TAG $ALE!
those who reside here on the Prairie
were a bit unsure of what type of $ALE we were having!
A TAG $ALE is usually a one~to~three day sellout
of the partial or entire contents of a home or business.
While there is obviously some overlap in the kinds of things
you can find at this type of $ale, the emphasis at TAG $ALES
is on clearing out as much of seasonal inventory as possible.
The main difference is that you will find more gently used things
at less of a price reduction at a TAG $ALE than other types of $ales.
This was a "perfect" solution
to the remaining seasonal inventory from our Bit's 'n Pieces Spring Booth!
With the "exception" of a few items,
most of the inventory in our TAG $ALE
never made it out of the trunk of my car or the U~Haul trailer.
Our TAG $ALE was held for one evening only
the night before the 23rd Annual City Wide Garage $ale.
"Mr. Ed" and I utilized both sides of our two~car garage
and displayed items in a U~shape with a host of lawn items
just outside the doors!
Over~and~over, people kept asking. . .
"Where is your shop located?"
" Your displays are just beautiful, where is your booth?"
"When is your next booth event?"
which blessed us in amazing ways.
And while it may take a bit of time to "catch on" here on the Prairie. . .
we were extremely blessed with our first TAG $ALE $uccess!!!
Until next time. . .
