This Weekend in Austin

This weekend in Austin was great at the City Wide Garage Sale.  There was a good crowd and steady sales all weekend.  We took a load and set it up on Friday and by Saturday night I had to raid my booth at Binky LeFaye's in Llano since I had sold so much.  Not a bad problem to have.  Here was my booth:

The concrete lady sold right away!
I am loving the new gray color of these things.  The red base sold as well.

Several liked this display, the contrast of the gray with the brown and coral, or so I was told:

Several of these items sold:

It was good to see Anne and meet Tom and see Linda and Lisa again.  Thanks to all the customers that came out.   We'll be back in September, actually just a few weeks away again at the City Wide Garage Sale.  Mark your calendar's, it's Sept. 3-4.  Hope to see you there.
