Annual Neighborhood Garage Sale
Our annual neighborhood garage sale was this past weekend. The neighborhood association has been sponsoring this sale the first Saturday after Labor Day since the early 1970's and it really has become a tradition. We had one lady tell us that she plans her trips home from North Carolina around this weekend so she doesn't miss the sale.
This year we had 5 different people driving golf carts to do their shopping (we are not within a golfing community.) And even had one family come on a small yard tractor pulling a trailer full of people stopping at each sale!
An Amish family rented a space across the street in our neighbors front lawn to sell homemade baked goods and jellies. The cost of rent they were charged - one cherry pie. LOL. Oh my their creamed filled doughnuts were out of this world and worth the extra work I'll need to do at the gym this week!
I didn't participate by selling my own things, but did help out my parents who are downsizing. Oh what a load of goodies they had! Here are a few pictures taken before we got too busy.
It was nice to visit with neighbors and meet a lot of people. We had a fun but exhausting few days!
