When Tom and I moved out of our home last January,
we left behind a lot of "stuff".
Lots of stuff.
After we downsized, purged, gave away and threw away,
there was stuff still left behind.
So I donated
it all to our daughter,
Kimmy, when she moved in with her family.
Kimmy has a wonderful mother-in-law
who knows all about Garage Sales.
And how fortunate for me, I know nothing about them.
It was decided the stuff had to go!
Connie, Queen of the Garage Sales
step in and helped Kimmy put on this event.
(Yes, it was an event)
She sorted, labeled, packaged, placed and
smiled all week.
Connie put out colorful signs and ran ads.
When the crowds came Connie shined!
This lady can sell an Eskimo ice!
She got up early to set up and stayed late to clean up.
When she drove away to the Goodwill,
she was still smiling!

I like "Ike" earrings
I bought these earrings when I was about 10 years old
at my first visit to a garage sale.
(Kimmy ended up keeping them.)
I came to help by playing with these two cuties.
Boxes are soooo much...
This small box was a perfect place to
study a Potato Bug.
Lulu and Levi named it Spud Ball.
Thank you Connie and Kimmy for helping me
depart with the "stuff" that needed to be gone.
