I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend! These past few days have been so crazy around here at Walking on Sunshine.
I've hardly had time to do my favorite thing...read blogs!
Saturday was our church flea market. Every year our girl's program holds a flea market to raise money for our summer programs. We charge $10 a table.
Whatever you sell, you keep! Great!
I've been participating in these flea markets for about 5 years now.
And every year I dread them.
The work involved..going through everything, pricing everything, packing up the car, getting everything to the field, etc.
And every year when the flea market is over...I've had the best time!
This year was no different! All week I dreaded the work involved. I finally made it down to our storage room on Thursday. I sorted through a bunch of stuff and threw out a bunch more!
I promised myself that whatever didn't sell I would just get rid of.
Saturday morning, bright and early, Michael and I loaded the car...
...oh yes, the Colonel usually gets to miss this!
He's only been around for one!
But, Michael is such a good kid, he always helps me and he always has his own table, selling toys that he's grown out of and this year my mom gave him a bunch of things to sell,
letting him keep the profits!
After a quick stop at McDonald's for pancakes for Michael...hey, a bribe does help...we made it to the field by our church by 8:15 and unloaded the car, set up our tables and proceeded to have a great time!
Michael did fantastic. He's a true salesman!
And I'm happy to report, I came home with only my crystal goose. Almost everything sold, and what didn't sell I gave to a friend who was going to donate the odds and ends to a homeless shelter for women starting over.
All in all I made about $100...I know that's not a lot, but I've learned to price LOW.
I may even attend the fall flea market.
But I'll have to find stuff to sell, there really is no more "junk" in this house!
Well I'm off to spend the best part of my day...visiting with all my wonderful friends!
Enjoy your day!
