Well, yesterday was our fundraising yard sale. We only made $164, but it’s $164 more than we had before. I was so hoping for a larger amount, but am grateful for the amount we made. I think next time will require a different location. My parents are in a convienent location right off the main drag, and I thought it’d be a good spot, but apparently we can find another one that might work a little better. We’ll work on that subject for the next one.
Now we are going to shoot for a bake sale and attempt to get it done right away. We have to pick a good location, maybe Target or Walmart, if they’ll let us. If we can get one of those, we’ll also tack on a food drive. I’m not sure they’ll be willing to work with us, but it’s definitely worth a shot. Both places are highly populated, people could go inside to buy a bag of dog food, and neither are really into baked goods (even if Walmart does have a tiny bakery area). Cross all paws and say a prayer that we are able to use one of those stores and that we make a good profit. Next to that, all we have to do is stir up some really tasty yummies!
It rained early in the a.m., but mother and I were fortunate enough to get all the things out for the sale in the nick of time. It got a little hot toward lunch time, and her and I both have a bit of a red face, but we managed to stay awake on no sleep. As you can see, our helpers weren’t much help:
They preferred to be inside where it was cool.
The after party included a Zaxby’s salad and much sleep. Now for a day of … maybe more sleep, who knows? 😉
