As I have told you, my daughter and I have published a book on Kindle.
The Guide to Garage Sale Greatness 20 Keys to Success.
The book is about how to have a successful garage sale. We are so happy about publishing; we decided to give away 4 copies (2 on each blog). If you are interested in winning an electronic copy of the book, comment on this post about an experience you have had either having or visiting a garage sale.
My daughter is doing the same thing over at her blog here and you can make a comment on her post here for an additional entry. The contest will run from today to next Sunday and will end at 6:00 PM CST. You have until then to make your comment.
If you don’t have a Kindle, that’s not a problem! There is a free app at Amazon.com to download on your computer, Android, IPhone, Book Readers, and more. Click here to go to the app.
We will use http://www.random.org/ to choose the winners. Good Luck!!

I went to a sale looking for a specific antique they had listed. Waited in line to get into the house. When we were finally permitted to go inside I scanned each room quickly looking for this item and then went to the next room. When I finally found the antique wooden butter churn a guy had beat me to it and was looking it over. I just browsed around the room, praying he would walk away from the churn. The second he walked away from it, I casually walked over and looked it over like I really wasn’t interested either, just in case he walked back over. He walked out of the room and I scooped the churn up lickety-split. It made my whole day!
I’ve done that myself! Good strategy!
I like to have garage sales as much as I like to go to them, except the last one I had was so frustrating. My customers ( mostly Hispanic, no offense as I am Columbian and Irish) didn’t want to pay even a quarter for nice items. I was baffled and slightly insulted that people were asking me to give them my stuff. Kind of turned me off from going to all of the work to setup another garage sale.
Wow! well, we have a technique for that! 🙂
