Tag Sale

Last Saturday my book club, Purple Circle, had a group tag sale at Judy's home. Judy got married recently and you can read about it here.  She and her new hubby were merging two households so they decided to have a tag sale to get rid of some of the unnecessary "stuff".  At a book club meeting we agreed that we all have a lot of that stuff and wouldn't it be fun to have a group tag sale.  The group has been together for 25 years and thought that this would be a nice legacy if we donated all our proceeds to charity.  Since breast cancer affects so many of us and one of our group is currently going thorough it, we decided to  make the Susan G. Komen for a Cure the recipient of our money.

It was an iffy day, weather wise, but the rain did hold off till late in the day. We had about 12 tables laden with our oldies but goodies and more big things on the ground. Judy's house was the perfect location with its long driveway and huge parking area where we had our tables.  She lives on a cul-de-sac so there was plenty of customer parking in the street. Not everyone in the group could make it for one reason or another, and some members came and went, but there were plenty of us to hold down the fort.  We got rid of a lot of that "stuff" and what was left was loaded into our cars and taken to Good Will.
