No one can resist a "Sale" Sign!

I was up this morning a little after 8:00 am and was settled on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee and my computer. Round about 8:25 I hear someone outside saying "Hello, hello!". I got up and looked out the window to see a woman on the porch walk towards the window and peek in!
I was still in my jammies, but went out to see who she was. She saw our "shyard sale" tent outside and the big 20% off sign and had picked out some pots that she wanted to buy. I followed her out to the front of the gallery and we chatted a bit. Seems she and her husband have a farm in Carthage and they had a job to do here in Seagrove... she saw the sign and the tent, and made her husband (who was pulling a trailer with farm equipment on it) pull over. She must have been out there awhile because she had quite an assortment of pots picked out. We went inside to make the sale and she said she would be back in a few weeks with guests from out of town.
So I will admit that I will shamelessly go outside in my Snoopy pajamas to sell some pots...

Why didn't we have a "shyard" sale sooner? Today was another busy day and lots who have stopped in have said they have driven by before, but the sale sign made them pull over. It got them in the door, some bought sale pots others bought the not on sale pots. Most everyone said they would be back... with friends.

  1. Not only did she get some great pots, but she has a story to tell the future visitors. Ha. good one, they must be lucky PJs.

  2. I love the PJ's. I have joked about marking up some pieces and putting sale signs on them when I'm at a show where people are asking for discounts. Just because they can't resist a sale. :-)

  4. Those are the greatest pj's ever!! What is with the word "sale"? I'm as guilty as anyone else, I used to walk into stores looking for the sale sign, that is, when I used to shop :)

  5. i rarely shop now too, aside from groceries. i think as we grow older we just don't need anymore "stuff" unless it's necessary.
    some of the ladies that came into the shop were such fun to watch. they were so excited.

    and as i type tonight, i am wearing Hello Kitty pj's that i bought on clearance at Old Navy when I was in NH... only $6.99 and NO SALES TAX in NH!
