Having a Crafty Yard Sale!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Aug 22, 2007 in Crafts, Yardsale Finds |

After almost drowning in all the stamps and stuff in my craft room, I’ve decided to have a small yard sale this weekend. 

I’ll be selling about 100 retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets, some retired paper and other accessories as well as stamps and inks from other companies.

I think I’ll also put out some craft show projects that I still have on hand and some vintage ephemera and other finds that I’ve collected but haven’t had a chance to use yet.

Plus, I’m also going to venture up into my attic (now THERE’S a scary thing to do!) and grab some of the things that are just in the front – bags of kid’s clothes, toys, and other household things that are piled up in there.  Hopefully, I’ll make it out alive!

We’ll need to have a bigger yard sale later this fall, but I thought I’d have a smaller one now to increase my cash flow this month.

And…it looks like I’ll be doing it alone.  Since Daisy is still recovering from being spayed on Monday, it doesn’t look like she’ll be able to go on our camping trip this weekend.  And we are also puppy-sitting Bella, Andrew’s other dog, while her family is at the shore next week.  I can’t imagine trying to keep Daisy calm while there’s a puppy in the camper!  So I’m going to stay home with Daisy while Bella goes on her first camping trip with the rest of the family.

Hmmm…a weekend alone with no children…sounds like a nice break, even WITH a yard sale!

The yard sale will be both Friday and Saturday mornings and will be listed in the Gloucester County Times and online as well – if you’d like more info, just send me an email…

I always feel like I have had a busy full day…until I read your blog!! You always have your hands in about 10 simultaneous projects, and yet you remain so calm. I need to adapt your mantra of “it’s all good.”
I think I will come by the yard sale on Friday, even though I have been shopping FAR too much this month. By the way, I was at Ikea yesterday and of course they were clearancing out many items, probably since the new catalog was just released. I got $25 and $15 items for .99! I bought a “towel” rod with plastic cups that slide over it that I thought would work great in a craft room.
The campground in MD sounded fantastic. Curry has been wanting to see the ponies on Assateague since reading Misty of Chincoteague. Do you know if Frontier town rents cabins?

so let me add the second half of my two cents…Just an idea, but I bet if you have lots of left over kits from stamp a stacks and other projects, people would buy those too. Okay maybe I am only speaking for myself!

Frontier Town does rent cabins – in fact, they are some of the cutest cabins I’ve ever seen! They keep them really nice and even have little flower boxes on the windows – adorable!

And I WILL be selling packages of leftover card kits at the yard sale – I’m one step ahead of ya’, Ang… :)

I have a question about one of the items on your blog but…I can’t find your email address. Please email me if you are willing at the address I registered. Thanks for sharing!
