The title for this post seriously needs to be read by one of those “crazy car salesman” guys because this is an EVENT people!
**VIDEO DISCLAIMER BELOW**
This Saturday, I am conducting a garage sale with my stepmother. Do not ask what level of hell I’ve willingly chosen to enter by taking on this task as I’m sure we’re straddling the line somewhere around 7 & 8.
I have never done a garage sale. Never.
I was promoted to dive into this task last Sunday while at my dad and stepmom’s house. I was hanging out, enjoying some down time while the Pineapple and DH napped and my stepmom was busy elsewhere in the house, and I started really looking around. And…
HOLY CRAPTACULAR WEIRD WOLF HEAD SCULPTURE TUCKED AWAY ON THE TOP SHELF IN THE OFFICE.
Where in the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks did THAT thing come from?! And why do they have it actually inside of their home?!
As I turned around…GAH!!!!
HOLY RESIN LEOPARD CROUCHED OVER A ROCK SCULPTURE!
*gasp* – *clutches chest*
You’ve got to be kidding me.
I called out to my stepmom – asking what the hell that thing was?! Her reponse: “a wolf head.” A wolf head, people. A resin, sculpted wolf head on a plackard of wood. Next to a painting of the New York City skyline. This called for drastic measures.
“We shall have a garage sale! And some Twifan will buy this wolf head! We shall have it this Saturday. And it will be glorious.” I proclaimed.
“Yay!” – stepmother, clapping hands.
“Oh crap.” – me when I realized what I’d just done.
So now, I’m in full clean out mode. I’ve got baby junk that is too small for Pineapple or obsolete because she really thinks that jumperoo is so two-thousand and late.
I’ll be working on this throughout the week and would LOVE any tips or advice any of you garage sale afficianados may have for me. All advice is welcome (and probably necessary at this point because I don’t even know where to get tags for this stuff *grimace*). Also, I’m sure I’ll have some fun pics and awesome garage sale stories…so that’s good…blog fodder. Am I right?!
**This probably doesn’t need to be said – but just in cases – we will NOT be providing gynecological services at our garage sale. Thank you. And ew.**
