I'M SO GLAD MY GARAGE SALE IS OVER

Good evening  ever one, I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend, and a Blessed Sunday with the Lord...  I am so happy to have my sale over with, I did do great but, I would rather go to the sale's then have them... So so many things to drag out, and drag back for the night, then up early to start all over again.

My very very Sweet MIL  helped so much, she did way more then she should have, but that is her way with just about any one.  We had her things plus my daughter's and mine,,, my garage and driveway was very crowded...  The days were very hot and we did have some very slow times, I think every one was either at the lake or in their homes staying cool... but we all made some money which made it all worth it......

I have some  photos to share with you all, they are of the Vintage Jewelry my MIL had, it was from her Mother, wow  so many gorgeous pieces, I was drooling all over them... lol

vintage jewlery 002  Her Mother just loved jewelry, don't you think....  I tried on every thing.. They were all clip on earring's and a few were the screw on kind, which I have not seen for a long time..  wait till you see then one I am showing next.... ooooooooooooooo la la

Now this beautiful set has matching earrings , pin, and necklace. I just love the ice blue stones,  but she did not sell any of them. They were priced very good, for jewelry from the 40's and 50's. So she is setting up and Esty account to sell them on there... So if any of you are into this kind of  jewelry I will do a post on what the name of her shop will be.....  She did give me a beautiful ring before she left, and one for my two daughters, some thing to have of their Great Grandma... how sweet of her....

I am so sorry that I could not make many visits to Pink Saturday Posts,  but the weekend was just so busy, but I will be making some visits even though I will be late in doing so. I love to look at everyone's Pink beauties.....  I hope you enjoyed my post and the photos,  and I thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and the comment's.  I Pray that you all have a wonderful week.  So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Hello Alaura!! I have never held a yard sale... I must be fun but like you've said must take a lot of your energy too! Love all the jewelry... I think I'm a collector... Most jewels I have are from my Grandma, love her to death! Much love, Vanessa

Morning, Alaura! Oh, I'm so glad you had a successful garage sale! They're so much work aren't they? I'm getting ready to have one and get rid of some of my mother's junk! :)
The jewelry is so pretty! I think that's a smart thing for your MIL to do! So many folks want you to give your things away at garage sales!

It's so good to hear from you! Hope all is well, Alaura!
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Glad you did well on your garage sale. I desperately need to have one but I keep thinking of how much work they are and I haven't. Maybe when it cools off a bit later in the year.

That jewelry is beautiful. Hope it does sell well in her Etsy shop.

Alaura,
Well, I was thinking of having a sale this weekend, but ooh, I'm thinking twice about it now.
I'm with you, I would rather be out going to sales, than having one.

Problem is, at my store i have so manyt hings i will never have time to re-do or fix or paint to sell, that i thought i would just get some of them out of the way, (so I could buy new projects no doubt!) =0)

Anyway, Glad you did well at yours.

Appreciate you coming by and signing up to follow my blog.
Blessings,
Barbara Jean

I had a yard sale several years back and it was so much work! I know how you feel. I don't think I'd do one again too soon!

I love the jewelry you showed. I remember trying on my great grandmother's screw on earrings when I was a child. I haven't seen those in years and years either.

take care,
Dawn

If God brought you there ... he will bring you through it! Thanks for stopping by!
