Last Day

Well I can say my sale was a success. I learned a few things, made some new friends, and had a wonderful time. That said, I'm glad it's over for another year (unless I decided to do it in the spring, but I think my Husband would kill me).
This is a card holder that I made for myself.

We also sold some of our personal items at the sale. And one of those items was a futon. I don't know if you've ever tried to carry a futon mattress, but it is one of the hardest things to do. They are bulky, heavy, and awkward. It usually takes at least 2 people and then it's never easy. Well this guy came to pick up the futon his wife bought, and look what he was able to do.

Let me just say, I was more than a little impressed. And I invited him back at 3:00 to help me load my stuff back into the barn. But he didn't show up-imagine that.

Also, one of my helpers brought a few things by and I fell in love with these folding chairs.

and just had to have them. I got 4 of them. I had just sold the Futon and they were less than what I got for it, and take up less space so I figure I came out ahead in the dollars and space issue. Wish DH would see it that way too. Out with the old old, in with the New Old.
That's it in a nutshell. I'll spend my Sunday resting, doing laundry, and SLOWLY Loading stuff back into the barn. I feel a little less burdoned by things and my wallet is a little bit fatter.

Hi Margo, so glad your barn sale was a huge success. Sorry I wasn't able to come. To much going on here at home for fun things. Love those chairs. I think you did made a wise exchange,getting rid of the futon and buying those chairs,and still coming out ahead in the money situation,made for a great deal. Get some rest,now that its all behind you......

Blessings, Shelley

hey margo - i'm glad your sale went well.

those chairs look like the ones we used to have in sunday school class when i was a little kid - only smaller. i remember i stupidly stuck my arm in between the slats and like to have never got it out. I think my teacher just had to wrench my arm back thru with me yelling at the top of my lungs!
