"Shyard" sale!

Out with the old, in with the new. That's what we have been saying this week. Jeff and I are doing some spring cleaning and unpacking boxes that we hadn't opened since the move nearly two years ago. These pots needed to find new homes and we had entertained the idea of a "shyard" sale for some time. At the last minute we decided that it needed to happen THIS week.

The 20% off sign went up

...along with the EZ up

The sun came out after a night of heavy rain and we have had a steady stream of customers. Nearly everyone who drove in today has gone home with a pot or two. The "shyard" sale will last through next Saturday, April 7th. 
It will be nice to have fewer boxes taking up space, cash in our pockets, and room on the shelves for new pots! Celebration of Spring in Seagrove will be here before you know it... April 21st and 22nd. 
Visit Gypsy Potters event page for details of what we are scheming up for that weekend.


  1. Oh those blossoms look beautiful; it's a great time of year to have sales of pottery or other items. I can't believe how much stuff we have sold and we still have a bunch more in the treasure bus and closets. My clay shelves are looking rather barren which is a good thing. We are planning on having one more yard sale next Friday and Saturday after the first of the month and then we'll hunker down for the humid summer doldrums. Hope you have lots of visitors,

  2. Oh gee I just realized next week of good friday and Easter maybe in two weeks we'll have a sale, hope you're having a good one.

  3. Linda, we had a great weekend! I think that our large 20% of sign made a lot of people pull stop. We sold a lot of things in the yard and had some good inside the gallery sales as well.
    The weekend after Easter we decided to have a traditional yard sale. We considered doing it in conjunction with this sale but decided that our pottery sales and a yard sale needed to kept separate.
    Maybe when we have the yard sale some people might come in and buy pots... but usually yard sale goers are looking for super deals and not pottery.

  4. Looks like it was a beautiful day for it! I need to organize the same thing at our house- too much junk hanging around...and it would be nice to sell off some lingering pottery too. Love the name : "shyard", perfect!!

  5. Nothing like good weather and good pots to put a little cash in your pockets. What a great idea, mind if I steal it after this show season?

  6. Feel free to use the idea! We borrowed the "shyard" sale idea from a NH Potters Guild colleague, Kit Cornell.
