Last year, with the help of my mom, I organized our church garage sale. My mom has organized a few garage sales at her church. I decided to split the money that we made among all of the children's Sunday school teachers to use for whatever they need for their classrooms: supplies, prizes, decor. I teach 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Sunday school.
The garage sale was a lot of work though! Luckily I had the help of my church family.
Last year we held the garage sale on a Saturday only. This year we are going to have it on a Friday and a Saturday. Among all of the garage sale items we found a Mr. T and Curious George doll. So we decided to have a little fun with them.
I decided to put on the "Darell the Barrel" costume from last year's vacation Bible school and go outside to draw some attention to our sale. It was so much fun!
We even sold hot dogs, chips, pop and water.
We didn't price anything. The money we made was strictly donations. We did price the large furniture items though. We ended up making about $600.
