Snapshots: Yard Sale.

IMG_0957

This past weekend my boyfriend and I had a successful two-day yard sale in our front yard. It was hot and sweaty and I am still suffering from my grass allergies but I am glad we did it. We had all kinds of help from my parents on the the first day, my mom was recruited and was gently forced to stay and keep me safe. The second day Ben’s Mom and brother came and helped us out all day .

This yard sale was a little bittersweet because I sold/donated ALL of the inventory from my now shuttered online thrift store: Notnu. It was a little sad to see my carefully curated store selection go in a fire sale but it was also nice to move forward and free up all that space.

She’s a terrible negotiator.

All the unsold clothes are being donated to Goodwill, Dress For Success, and My Freind’s Place, check them out to see the good work they are doing. Also, consider doing some research about what kind of donations your local shelters and non-profits need instead of just dumping your good stuff off at a for profit thrift store or one of those Dare bins that usually just send the stuff to rag, the landfill or overseas.

    Sorry to see all your hard work tagging and inventory get given away. On the brighter side by donating your clothes you are going to make someone happy with their new found treasurs! Not all is lost.
