Yard sales and cheap bastards!
In then end I did a total of $611 in two days! I had to also work on both days leaving my mother and stepfather running the show. I was a little pissed when I found out that my vintage 1930's record player was sold for $30 when I had it for $60. I also stood my ground when it came to people trying to jip me. One guy kept on trying to get 3 pairs of shoes two of which were new with tags on them and good brands (Steve Madden) for a total of $3! It pissed him off when I told him the price tags were on the shoes and that I thoUGHT $5 for a pair of Steve Maddens never worn was a fair price. People can be so dirty cheap sometimes. Perhaps that is whey we did fairly well. I wasn't allowing myself to get screwed. I don't even pull that crap when I go to flea markets. I understand the idea of trying to make a bargain but to rip people off is just tacky. Anyhoo... I will be donating the remainder of my stuff except the vintage furniture. That will be going on CL hopefully this week if I find the time.. I dug the dogs people were bringing with them.. This one guy brought this tiny bear like looking thing. Now, that my garage is almost 100% free of junk I will start to build my studio! it will be rad!
