Junk, Treasures, and Fresh Produce :)

Last weekend we hosted our second annual (and maybe last annual :) garage sale, and of course produce and bake sale.
We had over 10 individuals and families contribute, and had a wide variety of objects for sale, including an antique rocking chair,
wooden tennis rackets,
bowling balls,
 a golf club set,
and a large variety of small stuff, including books, kitchen utensils, decorations, etc.
Mr. Reiche also had rows of license plates for sale, as well as a trailer full of miscellaneous tools and other "old stuff".
The produce table was much more extensive then last year, and also had a lot more traffic.  Our Cucumbers were cleared out the first day, and our Zucchini didn't last much longer either.  A favorite (besides the Cherry Tomatoes) was Faith creative Fresh Salsa basket, complete with a complimentary recipe.
Always a hit, the Bake sale table added on a couple new items this year, including blueberry muffins, blueberry jams, and pretty Mixes-in-a-jar by our friend Megan. 
Despite some rain on Thursday, we carried on and had a wonderful weekend.
That is, when we weren't fighting the wind :)

While we maybe wished that a little more might have sold, the fellowship we had with friends who helped out was priceless.
So, although the Garage sale is over, Faith and I will be putting out a produce (and occasionally bake sale) table at the end of our driveway when we have spare time and veggies.  So if you are in the area, look out for the signs!!  :)
