Greta was thrilled to sell all of her canvases and drawings, and two of her three sculptures. This ceramic lady was quite popular with the customers; by late afternoon she had a new home. A mom and son bought her for their neighborhood annual Halloween decoration contest. I’m not exactly sure what her role in that will be, but Greta was glad to sell her.
We tried a new sales technique this year: at 2:00 we grouped all the remaining small stuff on one long table. Then we invited customers to “Fill-A Bag” for $1. Whatever they could get in the bag they could have for $1. (We included hanging clothes in the offer too.) It had mixed results. Some people didn’t understand and thought we meant everything remaining in our sale. Others just didn’t understand. So we decided not to try it again in future.
Overall, we were very happy with the results of our garage sale.
