Yard Sale



After thirty-three years in the Connecticut house, a yard sale is exactly what I need!!!  

Maybe later in the summer.

These kids have hit the jackpot at this yard sale.

Looks like a kids sale yard, not sure these are your things Jack

This one looks like a children's paradise.

VP said...

A lot of toys around!

Lowell said...

These can be great fun and/or very harrowing! Thirty-three years in one house would make you a prime candidate to rake in a pile of money by conducting a yard sale.

Or maybe, in your case, you ought to contact an antique dealer. Bwaaaaaaaa!

Ya, we've been here in this farmhouse since '77. Maybe August, unless something exciting comes forth. Please!

The kids look like they are in 7th heaven. I have been trying to downsize but after 37 years in our casa, I feel overwhelmed. Incidentally, you're up early today; normally you post comment in the evening but you are my first visitor today!

There are quite a lot of kids toys available in this yard sale. I hope the kids who owned them are okay with that.

The kids are having fun for sure, but from what I've seen at yard sales -- not one of my usual activities -- the adults have just as much fun!! Hey, Lowell is right! How about an antique dealer!!

This yard sale looks like it could be the foundation for a children's park.

I wonder if Mum and/or Dad obliged!

Great shot of the kids trying out the merchandise.

Putting on a yard sale is an excellent way to teach yourself how much work it is to own, move, maintain, and get rid of all our stuff. We keep resolving to pare down but I notice there's usually more incoming than outgoing...you'd think we would have learned something from our last move three years ago.

They are a lot of work but after 33 years it would be a good one, Jack!

In May, one of the neighbourhoods close to mine holds a massive garage sale, any house in the area planning on doing so are encouraged to do it on that day. The streets get clogged with pedestrians, and a walk through there takes twice as long.

Yard sales are not a feature here in general. But we do have car-boot sales, when people flock to a field or a car-park somewhere. You can hire a pitch for your table and it's like a market. Great fun, though I don't know how much stuff people actually manage to sell. Kids toys are usually a good buy at such sales.

Looks like the kids are finding lots of things to buy!

This yard sale seems to have attracted the under 5 crowd. Colorful and fun image.

Randy said...

Not one I would have stopped at.

That looks like a fun yard sale Jack, something for everyone :)

JM said...

Kids are just loving it!
