Week 4 [04.26.08]

Day Total: $0.00
Sales Visited: 37

Wow, what a bust! I don't think we ever had a day like today. We hit nearly 40 sales and came up with absolutely zero. We missed some Playstation stuff at the second sale of the day, heard a few "a ton of people have been asking about videogames", and everyone else had nothing. We even saw our competition from last year (flea market vendor) at one sale.

Needless to say, it was a long morning. In a way though, it was good. We're moving next weekend and will no longer be 'saling where we used to. Had we found a ton of stuff this weekend, it would've been harder to say goodbye to this area. The pickings have been slimmer in recent years, so we're looking forward to going 'saling in a new place.

We've just bought our first home, which has a LOT of space. We will finally be able to properly display and play all of the things we've purchased over the last few years. No more storage bins! We have a huge finished basement, which will be the game room. we'll take lots of pictures once it's up and running and post them here on the site.

We'll be back 'saling in a couple weeks, so we're hoping we'll have some positive reports from our new neighborhood!
