The First Annual Blogfinger Town-wide Yard Sale was pronounced a great success by the 21 participants. We did a survey of that group, and here are some of their comments:  “we were very happy with our sale,”  “very good,” and “everyone’s treasures were different ”  All of them agreed that having a large group enhanced the chance to attract customers. For example, on Stockton Avenue, four families participated.
From Mary Walton: “I think the yard sale was superb. You did a great job of getting the word out. Buyers got bargains. Sellers got rid of stuff and made a little money. But best of all it was fun because so many neighbors turned out in one way or another. It was a great social lubricant. Yes, do it next year.”
Everyone agreed that they would like to see it occur next year, although some wondered if they would have anything to sell.
We will plan to do it in 2013 on the Mothers’ Day Saturday in May. It’s a fun thing to do with Mom. Hopefully the numbers will increase next May.
Please let us know if you have any suggestions. We’ll see you next year.     Paul   @Blogfinger
