We tried to get everything priced tonight, we barely got everything unpacked before it got dark! Crazy! Saturday is the big day, I can’t wait to see if we get lots of customers, and hopefully they’ll buy stuff! Ok, it’s bed time. More after the sale!
Oh my! The size and scale of this garage sale is, shall we say “daunting?” Yesterday was delivery day to Sharon’s house. Sharon is Kate’s amazing coworker that offered up her family’s home to host the garage sale. She is in a much more garage-sale-friendly neighborhood than ours, which should make a big difference. So far, we’ve delivered over 9 full pick-up trucks of stuff. I’ll say that again: over 9 pick-up trucks full!
Tonight is pricing night. It may not be possible to get everything priced tonight because there is just so much stuff. Kate and I really can’t believe the turn out. Everyone chipped in with stuff for the sale, friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, everyone. Setup tomorrow will be a challenge. We’re crossing our fingers that everything will fit in the space we have to display it. We’ll be spilling out onto the sidewalk, that’s for sure. It was even discussed to split the inventory into two spots: one in the front of the house and one back by the garage. We’ll see.
To those who want to stop by, here’s the craigslist ad with all of the details, including a nice Google Map.

Found a baby blog today. No seriously, a baby blog. I mean a blog from the perspective of an unborn baby. An excerpt:
I had blue berry pancakes for the first time today! Daddy made a big breakfast and Mommyâ€™s tummy decided she would have some- so I got to try â€˜em too!
Huh? It’s simultaneously creepy, schmaltzy, cute, and funny. Overall, I like it! Here’s a shout out to Gill: “Yo!”
We are having a garage sale to help raise funds for the adoption. It was supposed to be a medium sized sale where we raised a few bucks. It has become a huge community effort with TONS of stuff and lots of people helping out. My friends at work and our families have been amazing and I can’t believe how much support we are getting. I am utterly overwhelmed. The big event is on Saturday. Should be crazy and fun.
