yard sale success!!

our Anderson MOPS piggy bank!
This past Saturday was the long-awaited yard sale.
We made money! WOOHOO!
It's over! WOOHOO!

On Friday night, Steering Team gathered at New Covenant & unloaded tons of stuff. I'm talking TONS of stuff. And we were worried that we wouldn't have anything to sell. Ha. It took about 3.5 to 4 hours to get everything unloaded, unpacked & sorted. By midnight, we were delirious & a little bit crazy... but the entire lobby of New Covenant was lined with (relatively) neatly sorted piles of merchandise.

On Saturday morning, we dragged our weary selves out of bed &, armed with large Dunkin' coffees, had things set up & ready for business by 7:30am. There was a steady stream of shoppers during the entire morning.... our signs & website postings seem to have done the job quite well!

Although the final numbers aren't yet in, the preliminary total is approximately $700... most definitely worth cleaning out our garages & attics!  And we had the opportunity to meet quite a few new Anderson mamas. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they'll come to MOPS next month :)

Thanks so much for all you ladies who worked the sale, made baked goods, set up Friday night, collected items from friends & family, came to shop, or posted the sale info on your Facebook. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
