garage sale success

August 13th, 2011 at 09:55 am

Whew! What a day! The garage sale is over. We were up and selling very early, first customer arrived at 6am and continued on until roughly midday. We made just over $440 in total. The guy who bought the tires owe us $60 (paid a $20 dep), and a single mum with kids owes $90 for a tv cabinet. She paid $10 deposit and is also paying us $15 if we can deliver it to her house on Wednesday when she gets more money. I made cupcakes to sell as well (sold about 12 for $2 ea) and she has asked me to make 10 more on Wednesday... And wants to order some for a birthday as well, later on. Yay! I am only charging her $1.50 each for the bulk orders. I have to find out how much I can buy the ingredients for from my boss. I don't make a lot on them (they are not cheap ingredients... Cream cheese, strawberries etc) but anything is good really!)
After the garage sale we did our weekly grocery shop and had Mexican for dinner from a new place in town. Naughty having takeaway two nights in a row... Especially after just doing the shopping! But... So tired!

    Great one day sale!

    I've never heard of taking deposits. Do you still have the items and they will return with money? Hope so.

    Congrats on the good sale! Glad you made some money and hope the folks with the deposits follow through. I'm like ccf -- never heard of deposits and holding the items beyond the sale.

    They just paid us what they had on the day to ensure we wouldn't sell it. We still have the items - they can be resold with no problems at all. It is just like buying a car or house - well atleast here anyway, you usually pay a cash deposit to hold the sale.
