Day two of Project Garage Sale wasn’t quite as successful as Day One but, customers or no customers, I think FishMama and I had just as grand of a time talking in rabbit trails ninety-miles-a-minute while keeping seven children contented and cared for. (Actually, I’m pretty sure I was the only one guilty of the rabbit trails and ninety-miles-a-minute part–did I mention keeping my mouth shut was not something I was gifted in?!)
Since traffic was slow, the boys decided they needed to put their thinking caps on and come up with some creative ways to attract more buyers to their soda and candy stand. This was one such result:
Folks, I’m telling you, the box of dress-up clothes sure came in handy today. And sales jumped incredibly, too. No wonder those pizza places hire clowns to stand on the street corners touting sign boards with the $5.95 lunch special–it works!
Here’s to hoping our costumed children and half-off-everything special attract more enthusiastic garage-salers than we know what to do with tomorrow.
