But Nobody Bought The Yard

How many books we sold at my daughter’s yard sale depends on whether you mean the ones I wrote or the ones I read. Either way, I came back with a lighter load.

I’ve concluded that for most people yard sales aren’t worth the time and effort: It’s like putting all the work into setting up a small business, then shutting it down again after just three days. But in this case I got to hang out with my daughter and grandkids, so there was that.

Yeah, this is one of the few areas they don't tax over here! I also love rummaging through other people's old stuff. It's one of the reasons I took on the project of going through hundreds of old photos for my history book they're releasing August 24th; got to go through a *lot* of historical photos, and some museums, too.

Glad you had a good time. They have city wide sales all over where I live but I don't get many of them. I end up buying more stuff I don't need lol.

Yeah, that's exactly why we don't hit them up often anymore! Finding old stuff is way more fun than shopping for new stuff.

You should have had a garage sale. I hear there's a market for used garages.

You know, we had three or four garage sales at my house years ago, and I never even got a bid on my garage. When you consider it was originally a carriage house and can barely hold a compact car, it's understandable.
