Yesterday was the annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. Instead of my normal participation as a buyer, I decided to be a seller this year. What better way to liquidate things ?? I'd been gathering stuff for a couple weeks and came up with what I considered to be a pretty good selection of yard sale goods.
I'm not sure if we were too far on the geographical fringe of the sale - or if our street is too busy - or if it just wasn't my day for a yard sale. But I actually lost money. I made $11 (thanks to my neighbors) from selling 10 vhs movies, a food saver machine and a tea pot - but it cost me $12 to participate as an official seller. Sigh. At least it was finally a nice sunny day to sit outside. For six hours.
