Very disappointing! I've never done well with yard sales.

Thats very good advice. Just one of those things that we should know better, seems it is always "after the fact" than we realize it.

I have found that yard sales always do well in the spring. People have been shut in their houses all winter, and the first sunny warm weekend they want to get out and pick up bargains! It's not always possible to time the sale for the spring though.... so maybe you'll have better luck next weekend.

What a great kitty face to go with the disgust you must be feeling. After all that work too! Perhaps you can close it up this weekend and try again next weekend?
