It's In The Bag!

Another Annual City Wide Garage $ale, On Crooked Creektt, is in the bag!

I had forgotten how much time and energy goes into holding a Garage $ale.

Busy as bees,
"Mr. Ed" and I had our son come to help carry up the large pieces of furniture.

it was down to business as usual setting up tables, 
styling the garage and staging for our dear friends 
as well as for "new" and return customers.

This year, 
"Mr. Ed" had his own table of "goods" for $ale!
Ladies, he even set~up, priced and styled his table. . .
and was extremely $uccessful with only two items that didn't $ale!

Compared to year's past, 
the out~of~doors items went quickly this year!

"Mr. Ed" and I hold a Wednesday Evening $ale
that allows for working people to $hop before the crowds draw in.

The official first day is on Thursday!
Both of these days are h u g e $elling days On Crooked Creektt!
We choose n o t to hold $ales on the final day of the $ale which is Saturday.

During s l o w times of the $ale,
"Mr. Ed" and I are constantly moving and rearranging merchandise!

What hasn't $old on Friday evening is then inventoried, 
boxed~up, loaded~up and delivered on Saturday morning
to our local Thrift Shop and Goodwill!

I was quite surprised at what $old
and at what didn't $ale during On Crooked Creektt's Garage $ale!

"Mr. Ed" even $old one of his handmade wooden boxes!
The other will be donated to our Church Silent Auction in December!

On Crooked Creektt, another Annual City Wide Garage $ale. . .
is in the bag!

Dear Ones,
Just an update on my "frozen shoulder"!
I am s l o w l y regaining range of motion in my left shoulder.
Still attending physical therapy twice a week 
with continued daily exercises and "Mr. Ed's" stretching here at home.

It is still extremely difficult to  hold my camera for photo shots.
Reaching into the cupboards and handling dishes is still at a stand still.
I return to the Orthopedic Surgeon on Tuesday, May 31st.

Thank you for your patience, as I've been lax in posting.
I'm hoping to be able to do some tablescapes, soon.

I appreciate each and every prayer sent on my behalf!

Oh Pat, a frozen shoulder, oh my I know you have been in terrible pain and it is such a long and tough recovery. My heart goes out to you. After two knee replacements and another surgery in January for a revision of the right, I can't stand the thought of any kind of surgery. Don't know how you got it all ready for the garage sale but I commend you. Sure wish I could have bought those blue goblets. I am wanting to have a sale but haven't done a thing to get ready. Take care.

Happy to hear your shoulder is slowly getting better.
You had some nice items for your tag sale...someone spent lots of time marking and tagging everything...big job!
Have a great week, Pat.

Well you put on a well displayed garage sale! I bet your things sold quickly.
My sister is a hair stylist and she started having a problem that sounds similar to yours. She went in for a massage and it was at a chiropractic clinic. The chiropractor came in for a visit and gave her an adjustment. She came out feeling so much better she started going regularly and it's made all the difference. No surgery needed. It's worth a try vs. the alternative.

I am sure you did very well at the garage sale, everything looks fabulous.
I am so, so sorry to hear about your shoulder.
Sending healing thoughts and also thank you for sharing your time with us today at TOHOT.

Stacey said...

First, let me say that I hope your shoulder heals quickly. That sounds painful but you are determined. Through physical therapy and those stretches, you'll get better.

You and Mr. Ed are garage sale pros. You obviously know what you are doing!

Happy, happy Thoughts of Home.

I am so sorry about your shoulder and hope you get more help with this week's doctor visit. Amazing you could do the sale with your shoulder. And yes, isn't it interesting what sells and what doesn't? Good for you to be so diligent purging and selling and rearranging and saving some for the church sale, etc. I think you may have more energy than me!

Saw so many things I wanted to buy! Not sure how you talked yourself into parting with that quilt and the bee ornaments. Happy your sale went well. Good luck with the shoulder.

Pat, first off, I'm sorry to hear of your shoulder issues. Anytime is bad, but especially during gardening season would be awful to lose range of motion.

You do the BEST job in setting up for a a garage sale. It really looks inviting, clean, and well-priced (of what pricing I caught a glimpse).

Rest well now, and I hope the best for you when you see your specialist.

Laura said...

You are a garage sale master, but a frozen shoulder is painful.
Please take care!

I hope you feel better!
Happy TOHOT!

Oh, dear! I hope your shoulder is better soon.

Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Your shoulder sounds painful. Hopefully there is good news and a good fix for it from the doctor. If I could be guaranteed of a successful sale like yours, I would have one. My luck has brought rain and few buyers. I live in a village right near main street! I have sworn off ever having another sale :-(

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh I hope you are better soon! This is the nicest garage sale I've ever seen. Thank you so very much for joining us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Have a wonderful holiday weekend.

What a nice yardsale. We need to do the same here!

Christine Graves said...

Hiya Pat, well you had said you'd be busy! I hope it goes (or went well) I saw some goodies that I would definitely have to have so I am sure they will go fast!

Hope your feet and back survive and you don't get too many of those crazy people that want everything for a nickel. Last time we threw a garage sale that happened to me and the woman called me a racist and said she was going to put s curse on me. I laughed really hard and said God Bless you, now get out. LOL
