We had a great time at the Great Glebe Garage Sale yesterday!
The weather was perfect, and bargain-seekers were out in full force.
We could not have asked for a better location than the Farm Team Cookhouse and Bar. It was extremely central and we had a steady stream of people picking through our stuff all day long. We also had the opportunity to sample their food and beverages on the patio after a hard day's work, and I would highly recommend both!
We had a lot of stuff for sale, mostly donated by our awesome friends and family and also from us cleaning out our house. This ranged from Sebastien's old magic cards (these sold quickly, geeks love a bargain too), to clothing, an air-conditioner, kitchen items, board games, books and sporting equipment. We also sold quite a few of our earrings (featured in an earlier post).
Thanks to our hard-working, good-looking and personable salespeople - who have an enviable ability to up sell - we were able to raise $662 for our two charities! And yes, I did wear a fanny pack. So unfashionable, but so convenient for giving people change.
We were also located right next to the broadcast booth for the radio station CHUO FM 89.1. Papa Ritchie was playing awesome beats all day long, and he even interviewed us about the Mongol Rally. I'll post info about that later. Be sure to listen to him from 12pm-4pm on Saturdays, it's perfect music to relax on a a summer day!
Thanks again to everyone that donated items, bought stuff, set up, and helped at the sale. We are so lucky to have such supportive friends and family!
