Dejunked and Had Fun

June 5th, 2017 at 09:48 am

Ooh, I had fun in Minneapolis over the weekend. We sold a lot at our garage sale--mine was mostly cheap and small, but my friends sold air conditioners, pictures, dishes, etc. My BFF and I went to a vintage place in the uptown neighborhood and sold a a bunch of my mom's old earrings, including singletons they use for hat trimmings. We ate out one night, breakfasted out one morning, and had cocktails by the river another night. Very fun and made $68 on the jewelry and another $82 on the garage sale items. The driving was smooth and easy, I packed lunches and water so spent nothing on road food. I'm throwing the $68 into my 100K fund tomorrow, I think. The check for my teaching award also appeared, but I'm not quite sure where that's headed yet.
I sold a few things on FB before I left so will add $4 to that total and another 75cents I found in Minneapolis on Hennepin Avenue

    I always found garage sales fun when I did them with friends...not so much other times!

    I like the idea of garage sales in theory, but whenever I go, there's nothing but junk with ridiculous prices! People are watching too much Antiques Roadshow and seem convinced their clear glass florist containers and beat-up shoes are going to make them rich. Ha!
