Yard Sale Disaster

Well I figured out it was a complete disaster! Let me back up!

So I have an interact machine, I am a business, and I have packaged productss that are new. So I figured, why not have an artistic sale on the Driveway this past Saturday Morning. Took me about 50 minutes to set up. My display looked like it was from a crafting show. Nicely dolled up.

People started arriving but weren’t getting out of their car. Slow drive by as I sat and crocheted up a fabulous Sari Silk Scarf by http://darngoodyarn.com. Well let me tell you… what a disaster!

I think about 45 cars arrived in all. Not a bad turn out… but I would say that only 4 people got out of the car to browse. I got to tell my story. I sat quietly until 10am and I decided to pack it in. Not one sale or even anyone close to wanting anything…

Absolute bust… I didn’t know the answer but I wanted to try and see if the public is interested in crafting like I am. I believe with this crowd is about showing crap on the front lawn instead. Something you paid 100 bucks for is now a knickel.

Longer story short… it was a mistake. But a valuable lesson never the less… You can’t blame me for trying… but now I know the answer!
