With our massive home purging going on, a community yard sale couldn't have come at a better time. A great way to motivate the awful task of going through all those old boxes & forgotten shelves we've neglected for far too long. Even though the traffic was a bit disappointing compared to years past, the fact that we finally dragged most of the junk out was a triumph in itself. Whatever didn't sell we donated, freeing up so much new (needed) space.
Other than the loot, the boy's lemonade stand was once again a big hit. This year they offered donuts in addition to the juice - which, it appears, is very hard for the average weekend scavenger to pass up. I mean, who doesn't love a warm donut on a cool morning while on the hunt? Thanks to the neighbor kids and rotating shifts, they made enough $$ to supply every child on the block with big sticks from the ice cream truck for the rest of the summer. So here's to sticky driveways and lots of happy little ants headed our way.
