Tag Sale A Go-Go

Yesterday was my big tag sale!
A month of prep for about 6 hours of fun.
Kind of like a wedding.  hahaha.

 I used my guest room as a staging area,
all the stuff priced and boxed ready to go out.
 Lots of friends showed up to help and move things.
 We made it like a party. Lots of laughing and teasing each other.
It was amazing what people bought and what they walked by.
 The terrace was set up with all the "little stuff."
Boy do tag salers love to barter!
After the first couple of sales, you just cave in and want people to
take things, you will sell it for a buck 
so you don't have to pack it up and move it again!
 We had people come back a couple of times too . . .
CD's seemed to be hot sellers, go figure?
 The rocking horse my dad made didn't make the cut, 
so he will be going into storage for the time being.
The only thing going into storage! 
Gidget and Barbarita
They helped me sooooo much!
I wish I had taken a picture of the whole crew.  They were all amazing.
I am so lucky to have such great friends!
And they bought half my stuff too . . . 
"You are selling that???  What do mean??
I guess I'll have to take that!"
Haha.  I'll have to  help them with their tag sales in the future I'm sure, 
wonder how much of their stuff will have come from my tag sale!
Happy Sunday. 


  1. Looks like a great sale! I love to find fabric that way~

  2. Glad you had good weather! Kudos for making it such a fun event.

  3. Glad you had a good sale - looks like you had good stuff, wish I could have shopped it! I LOVE a good yard sale! Good luck on the move~

  4. Wow, it looks like an amazing sale! Hope the move is going well and you're thinking of how to decorate the new place (with plenty of quilts, I hope!)

  5. You've inspired me. I have sooooo many "lovely" things that need to go home with others. Love your analogy of tag sales/weddings. That is just tooo funny.
