Pls Help ~ Giving Junk or T2T Yard Sale ~ Need Advice

njtomboyAugust 15, 2008

OK - I posted this on the Garden Junk board but still need help finding this post & getting tips...

Last year there was a post about someone wanting to give a yard sale (not for cast offs) but for beautiful projects made from junk.

One woman talked about a sale she gave yearly w/a friend. I remember something about putting tags on the items with cute sayings.

Her post gave a lot of great tips...

Well I've decided just this morning that I want to give one Labor Day weekend.. and need a link to that post AND any help you can give as well!

Again this is not a regular yard sale.. I want to sell my creations as well as get sign-ups for my brandy new local rec center junk class.... (YAAAY!)

So I need this to be a really beautiful experience for the neighbors so the will come out and participate. Any help y'all can give would be greatly appreciated!

No actually Margo had posted on that same old post too...

It was a woman who said she gave them and they were quite successful!

I sure wish we could find out who this woman is. I like the idea of this sort of sale. When most people think about garage/yard sales, they think junk. I don't consider the things I have as junk, cause it's still in great shape and it's not trendy things like geese, ducks, etc. Colors are also current~no green/burgundy or blue/mauve. ;o)
