I was so excited to sell a carload of my stuff, but, it wasn’t meant to be.
Shane and I showed up at the community center at 6:15 in the morning (!?). I walked in and asked someone where I could buy a table. The lady looked at me like I was nuts. She told me that the tables were pre-sold awhile back, and that I was out of luck.
Now wait just a minute.
The newsletter that advertised the event said nothing about preregistering. It said to just show up and sell your stuff.
So, I found a guy that looked like he was "in charge" (nobody actually looks authoritative at that hour) and he told me that yes, I was indeed out of luck. He said that in May, they’ll have rummage sales every week and I can try to get on the list then.
For pete’s sake.
I’m not hanging on to a carload full of junk for a few months. No ma’am.
I’m going to take out a few items (camera, graphic calculators, etc.) and try my luck on eBay. The rest is going to a thrift store.
I guess the moral of the story: Call ahead if you ever have to be at a place at 6 a.m.
