My first Yard/Craft/Garage Sale of the Year



This weekend marks the beginning of the great yard sales here on Prince Edward Island... a number of communities do them as fundraisers. The Eastern Kings Giant Yard sale is the first and this year the funds go to the community arena. I have taken part in each of the events and this year marks number 3!

I always do good there....I sell crafts, household items and of course things that belonged to my grandson. My grandson is the big winner here...lol..he does nothing and reaps the profits...I give him all the cash from everything except from my crafts and the table rentals are paid from the household items.

It is alot of work but I love it. I usually have my friend with me but this year she is unable to attend so not sure if I will take my portable garage or not as it is too hard to set it up on my own.

You will find everything from antiques, crafts, junk to treasures here...something for everyone and of course there is food!
