Getting Ready To Have A Yard Sale

We have spent the last several days getting ready to have a yard sale this weekend.

We pulled ALL the boxes out of my grandmothers shed and put the stuff under the carports. One of which my husband and dad pulled up here from the place next door (they hooked it to a tractor…was fun to watch).

There were about 40 boxes and at least that many grey bins. Lots of ceramic knick-knacks, kitchen bowls, cooking utensils, gobs of picture frames. Stuffed animals galore, and paintings, and little signs with funny sayings on them.

There is also some furniture and lots and lots of clothing. Putting the clothes on hangers took a few hours. She had some lovely dresses. Too bad it is all too small for me.

We had to take all that out and set it out where it can be seen. After the first couple of hours we didn’t bother with much sorting though we did try to put like items in the same area so people can find them easier. There are more than two whole boxes of picture frames of all different sizes. And she didn’t even have pictures in most of them.

Of course some of the stuff was from my house and my mothers but most is my grandmothers items.

The yard sale is going on now and we still haven’t got all the boxes emptied out.

So I have been busy and will be at least till Sunday. If all that stuff doesn’t sell we might be doing it again next weekend. But at least we won’t have to unpack it again!

Have you had a yard sale this year? How did it go?


  1. Hi there, I’m from the uk and we don’t tend to have yard sales (yards aren’t usually big enough!) but when I moved recently me and my boyfriend did 3 boot sales (from the trunk of the car, that’s what boot means in the uk!) and made quite a lot of money which was nice. A bit intense though at some points when all the bargain hunters go crazy1

  2. Last April I had one. It was awesome. Not for only that we earned some extra cash but also it became a get together for family and friends

  3. This is really nice of you to give this tips and your blog help out a lot .. Its quite interesting …
