Oh my, the weather couldn't have been better. It was wonderful weather. We had a great turnout. As usual some things broke your heart how cheap they went and other things went for unbelievable amounts. You just shook your head. The costume jewelry did very well. You can't give away records. We still have a ton of stuff to get rid of. My work is not finished. I made $1000.00 on my stuff and Betty made $4000.00 on hers. One of her crocks went for $500 and her oil painting went for $700. This old pine cub board went for $300. My jewelry went for good amount, but my depression glass was basically given away. Sob. Then we still have to pay the piper and we still have to pay for advertising etc.... Still it feels good. A huge dent was made in the stuff. I am happy it is over.
At the end though they just leave everything that didn't sell. We got up at 5 am. We were there until after 6 putting the things back that didn't sell. Now we have to get rid of that. BIL was no help at all. He didn't help get ready. He didn't help haul all the things outside. He didn't help haul it back in. He is at this moment on the phone with Rick seeing how much money he gets. Makes me sick. So here are some unedited pictures of the mess. You can see how much work I had to do dragging this stuff from closets and cub boards all over the house. I am soooo sore but so happy it is getting closer to being finished.
