I hosted my first garage sale this weekend. My mom brought a bunch of her stuff up and we did the sale together. It was fairly successful, though I was hoping to make a little more money than I did. I had a few bigger items (Christmas tree, coffee and end tables, lawn mower) that I was hoping to get rid of that didn't sell, while most of my "junk" flew off the tables. It's interesting, and kind of funny, what people go after at garage sales.
Nonetheless, at least now I have enough money to buy these shelves from Pottery Barn:
We moved into our house a year ago and it's time we start putting some things on the walls to make it feel more like home.
