All these quiet nights! People thought I had changed. Fellow Hatters, I had been sinning on eBay with superfluous jewellery puchases. So much so that I had to have a sell off at our annual yard sale. Still, I have tons I won't part with!
I had the monopoly on new jewellery sales this year. The man who had two huge tables last year just showed up near the end to see what was selling.
A lady who hadn't noticed the disappearance of certain tried and true costume jewellery brands bought a necklace to wear with her new pink dress and three pairs of earrings to wear with it and other dresses.
Sophie, a retired nurse who actually goes out wearing an ecletic flower pot hat with a single posie bouncing out on top, took the red plastic earrings and matching double stranded necklace. She wore it right away and went on shopping in her new finds!
A beading expert bought a whole strand of beads to get the amber coloured beads for a job she was doing.
None of my practical items sold. That shows the optimism of the people who refuse to admit to dour topics of life that often lurk just around the corner. Everyone was in an upswing mood and we had a terrific time. The sale was all too short and we had to pack up and run at 1:00 o'clock. I was there and ready to sell and was selling an hour and a half before the official opening of our yard sale.
"What a difference a day makes." I went home with my slacks sagging from heavy large coins! God bless.
