Car Port Sale

I did just "so-so" on Friday and Saturday.  So since it was officially for Friday and Saturday only...Bob & I have loaded up all the stuff and we're going to drive a few blocks away from the house and set up at the local Swap Meet in an old drive in theater.   (I went there to the movies as a kid, so you know it's been there a long time.)  There won't be very many people here in the park today, because all the signs have been taken down.  Anyway, this ought to be an experience...I haven't been over there to sell stuff since back in the late 1970's when I was still  married.  And have only been there a few times since then, to look for something to buy.  I've lived here for almost 6 years and have only gone over there twice, to look around.

I know last year my neighbor went over there after the sale here and came home with his pocket full of money and his truck nearly empty.  So we'll see what happens. 

The two days here have been fun...I met a lot of great people.  My former co-worker from the Oldsmobile dealership (1964-1968) Pat, came over Friday...she sat and visited with me for a couple hours.  We had such a good time...she reads my journal (but never comments) so she saw the new kitchen floor and met Gabi.  Thanks Pat for coming by...it was great to see you! Lunch soon...ok?   And then Saturday, my SIL brought my grand kids over and they were here from about 11am until a little after 5pm.  They walked thru the whole park, checked out all the sales and came back with no treasures...I couldn't believe it.  But it was fun to have them here.  So it's off to the Swap Meet today and I'll let you know how it goes.  I've got my camera with me...I'll try to get some pictures.  Linda

I hope your swap meet goes well.  What a place to have it, a place with such history for you!  I love going to places like that and am always interested in the history behind it.  Glad you got to visit with friends and the grandchildren!  Looking forward to the pics!

Hope it all goes well and you make some money for your holiday. My sister and I used to do craft sales together.  The best part used to be getting to spend the afternoon together and meeting all the people that would frequent out stall.  I'm not sure we ever made tons of money at it or anything but we did have a good time!
