Santa Sale

Wish all of you could attend the Santa Sale on December 2 and 3.  My daughter came up with the idea to hold a consignment sale where folks could bring toys, winter clothing, home decor, and gift-type items and sell them.  She has 71 sellers to date, and has another week before the sale.  I've taken off work on the 2nd so I can help her with it.  She will get a percentage of everything sold, and will donate a good portion of it to a charity in our community that helps folks less fortunate than we are.  She's had an overwhelming response and we are so excited.  It's a lot of work, especially for her, but she has participated in these type of sales before as a seller, and loved it.  She will have some gift cards to give away to sellers who sign up to work a shift.  She has a schedule set up for sellers to make an appointment to drop off their items.  She's so organized, it's unbelievable!  She even set up a webpage so that sellers can enter their items, and the information about the item, she then takes that information and e-mails price tags back to the seller so they can tag their items prior to drop-off.  Saturday afternoon everything that is left is 1/2 price.  Then anything that isn't picked up on Sunday is donated to the same charity for their thrift store.  Doesn't this sound like fun!!!  For anyone reading this in North Georgia, the sale will be at the Old Clarkesville Mill just North of Clarkesville, on 441.  I'd love to meet some of you, so if you happen to be in the area, do come by.

I've been gathering things together for the sale.  My husband says that I'll later need/want the items I'm selling for my decor projects.  I don't think so.  I'll be glad to get some 'stuff' out of the house.  That makes room for me to buy more!  :0) 

I made a few photos of some of the items I'm taking.  This is just a little of what I plan to take.  I have a bunch of things I have set aside in the basement to take.  I hope to get those items tagged tomorrow afternoon.
