It’s time for the Ole’ Saturday Homesteading Trading Post and yes as my title says it’s “Yard Sale Day” here at Lil’ Suburban Homestead and I should still say it’s clean up day since next weekend we will be having our greenhouse featured on a local gardening tour.
I love going to go yard sales and shopping at yard sales but I don’t so much like having yard sales it means that I might have to part with some of my great stuff! The funny thing is if you took that same stuff and got rid of it without telling me I probably would not know its missing unless it’s my computer or one of my homesteading books or one of my favorite kitchen tools!
So the inevitable day is here my husband has done most of the tagging, and I have advertised the sale on local websites. I feel a little sorry for my husband because I am not such a willing participant it frustrates him as he is trying to negotiate a sales deal and I am saying “no way I will not sell that iron for less than $4.00. ” My petulance often wins us a few extra bucks at a yard sale so I will probably go through the motions again but it does come from a deep sincerity of a person who really doesn’t want to part with her treasures. Ironically my husband collects the treasures so we are quite a pair! Will I miss that ironing board will it go to a good home? My husband and I even joke about how many items we have 2 of that we just don’t need.
I have received a lot of emails about stuff we have for sale I was actually surprised last year we didn’t receive so many emails I think the economy has inspired many more to re-purpose, re-use, and re-cycle which has been our motto here for years.
So are you a yard sale shopper? Or are you more of a yard sale seller? I am always curious about what others are up to at their homesteads. Are you frantically planting your potatoes? Do you have another blanket in the works? I know I am getting ready to make my niece one soon….oh yes did I mention I have another niece…I have lots of nieces!
