Yard Sale Report for June 11th, 2011

Today's report will be short and not-so-sweet: STRIKEOUT!!

Yup, I came home empty-handed for the first time this season. Of course, that's totally preferable to spending money on a bunch of junk I don't really need and won't use...but it always feels a bit disappointing when I don't come home with a fun find or two (after all, yard sale season is pretty short here in Southern Ontario!)

I'm sure my lack of luck was at least partly due to the weather: last night's forecast indicated a 90% chance of rain this morning so a lot of people decided not to risk it and canceled their yard sales at the last minute. There was supposed to be a street sale in my neighbourhood today but it wasn't running (and ironically, as of 11:20 a.m., it still hasn't rained yet).

I'm hoping Saturdays start having a lot more sunshine in the near future!


  1. Hi Karen - I'm disappointed along with you! I always look forward to your Yard Sale Reports and enjoy your finds vicariously - I live on a small island (2 ferries away from Vancouver Island) and we only have about one 'rummage sale' a year. We do have a Free Store attached to our 'recycling depot', so sometimes I luck out there. Looking forward to next week!

  2. Wow - only one rummage sale a year - I don't know what I'd do, lol. Hopefully I will have something interesting to report next weekend :) Having lived in a major urban area my whole adult life, I find it difficult to imagine what it would be like to live in such a secluded area as you do - although I definitely have days when I wish I lived on a small, secluded island!! I'm sure it must be lovely and peaceful there.
