GARAGE SALE WAS A SUCCESS!

Got up at 6:00 this morning and had coffee then went outside to put my art on display.  Had my first customer around 8:00 and it kept steady all day until about 3:00.

My books were my biggest selling item.  Next was my fine art prints of the island taken back in 2007.  Sold a few serving trays and fence slat screens as well as canvas paintings.  I did as well today as I have in the past when I participated in the Island Wide Garage Sale.  The weather was great and it stayed cool under the awning with a fan blowing on me and no bugs.












$350.00 is not bad for a day's work of selling at garage sale prices.  Of course that's not counting the hours I put in painting all of that canvas and wood.  However, that was the fun part. 

 I"m very happy with the sale and very tired tonight.  Going to bed early and plan on sleeping late.  I'll be staying here a couple of days then it's on to the State Park for a week.

    1. Hi Rick... Yes, the money is good for garage sale prices. The larger items that did not sell were over-priced in my opinion but I don't mind taking them back home and leaving them in my studio for my enjoyment.
