scenes from a yard sale

yard sale

Here in New Jersey, we're in the midst of the most disgusting heatwave ever!!! Today, I think there was a point where it reached 115 degrees. Gross!

What better way to celebrate than by having a yard sale?

The thing is that once you pay for a permit, that's it. You're sort of locked in.

So, we dragged our things out on to Dave's aunt's front lawn (which is 2 blocks from the beach), and baked them under the hottest sun.

I wish I could complain, but we made almost $200. Not bad for three hours of saying "hello" to strangers.

That's so cool! I used to play with one of those bead toys at the doctor's when I was little.
We had a yard sale when we moved from Queensland 2 years ago. You don't have to buy a permit over here but we had people turning up to our house at 5am!
Reuben :D

I need to go to more yard sales - they're so much fun.
$200 isn't too bad, good job!

I wanted to do a yard sale before I moved ;-; and yeah why didnt you tell me east coast is currently deathly hot right now I almost died on the street the other day!

Also for a yard sale 200 bucks is awesome. In san antonio thatd be a dream come true, anyway.

200 bucks! that isn't bad at all! we only made 30 with our last yard sale. so disappointing.
