Learned a lot from today's garage sale...Getting other family  and friends involved; whilst it takes more planning; is more fun.  There're more things for sale and it helps to generate larger crowds.  Location, as always, is also key.  

Today, we had 3-4 families involved; took over one of the families' driveway (the one with the best location...Right off a main road); and planned a big BBQ.  Except it rained.  The BBQ was cancelled and we were kept busy moving tables back and forth between the garage and the driveway.  But it wasn't a complete write-off; believe it or not, people were still driving by and stopping!  Even when we decided to finally close shop for the day, close the garage and  retreated indoors to enjoy a pot of tea; people were still swinging by; one even walked up to ring the doorbell! 

Disappointed that the weather didn't cooperate (was supposed to only possibly rain in the morning); we did make some money and ended the evening with a great dinner.  

Keeping fingers crossed for better weather tomorrow.
