People and Yard Sales

OK, so I had my moving sale this past weekend. It went very well actually and I am just glad it's over. People made out like a bandit with my stuff. I was practically giving it away. It's fine though, I couldn't use it anymore.

It's weird though, I felt some kinda way about seeing my stuff float out of my house. There is something about that whole experience that just didn't feel right.

People were like scavengers. It was weird to see. This one woman came in and bought things I hadn't expected anyone to take. In my guest bathroom upstairs this woman took the decorator towels I had hanging up. They were cute but I just wasn't expecting anyone to want them. I had a small basket on the sink counter in the bathroom with things guests would need if they forgot to bring them like toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, lotion, shampoo, all kinds of stuff and she took that. She even took the dirty rug I had laying by the door for people to wipe their feet on when they came in. I REALLY wasn't expecting that one.

It's all good. I feel really at peace right now so that's a good thing. It's weird, I was thinking about my nieces yesterday and realized I was going to miss them like crazy. Would it be wrong for me to kidnap them and drag them to Atlanta with me?

OK, off to visit your blogs.

Someone actually took/bought your dirty rug? Incredible! But hey, you didn't have to launder it and you don't have to toss it or take it with you, so more power to her I guess! Glad you did have a good response though to your sale. Always helps to have that happen.

We've had people argue over barely used sneakers we were selling for fifty cents.

FIFTY CENTS.

I hate people so much.

People will buy anything and this post proves that!

It never ceases to amaze me what people will buy if you put a price tag on it.

Glad your sale went well and you were able to eliminate a bunch of stuff.

Yard sales are great. When we moved to America for a year, we bought basically everything cheap on yard sales. It was very practical, since we had to get rid of it all one year later when we went home >:)

You have a move coming up... you are getting rid of things that don't need to travel with you. You will get new stuff when you get settled...

Don't ask me how I know...

I would hate to see scavengers picking through my stuff, so every time I move I just give it all away. MUCH easier. It's not like I would've made that much money anyway.
