Spring 2013

We had some trouble finding a location for our 16th sale. We ended up in a vacant office building that had a nice big open space but we also needed to use some of the smaller rooms which was a challenge both for the sale organizers and our shoppers. Sales were up from last spring, but we heard some people say they never saw the book/movie room or the puzzle/game room that was inside the toy room. Admittedly, the toy room was too small although by our calculations it should have worked. Perhaps there were just more toys than last sale!

We had a nice breakroom for our volunteers and a pretty good Hold Area with pickup doors in the back. This is always great to have. We also made a huge investment in a 46ft semi trailer to store all of our equipment in. This will reduce the need to make 5 trips back and forth to the storage unit and load/unload our small trailer 5 times. Now we just pack it all up and park it until the next sale!

After 8 years of putting on this sale, I'm still amazed at how much STUFF we start each sale off with and how LITTLE is left at the end! One fun aspect is seeing how different our inventory is from sale to sale. We can see certain item trends (we know what was popular last year or 2 years ago!) and witness other items coming back sale after sale, tried and true products that work (sometimes with just a color change to tell us the era). And I still love the faces of the happy shoppers, it lights my heart to see the pics of people showing us the treasures they've found at our sale! (I especially love it when consignors bring their kids so I can see them growing up!)
