The rain held off (for the most part), and it was a fun day! Proceeds didn't amount to too much, but we did get rid of a LOT of junk - so it was all good.
This was the 'First Annual' Tailgate sale held by a local church. They have a rummage sale every summer, and decided to expand this year to include outside vendors while they were having their sale. Made sense to me! At $10 a spot x 18 vendors - that was a nice addition to what they would make for a rummage sale! The minister came around to talk to each of us, to see if we needed anything, and explained that their goal in trying this was as a way of getting the community to interact more. They hope to make it an annual event. Various members of the church stopped at each vendor a various time throughout the day to deliver messages...
"There's free coffee for the vendors at..." "If you need it, the restrooms are at the top of the stairs, down the hall on the left...""How have your sales been?" "Any suggestions for next year?""Hamburgers are ready!"
They were a sweet group, and wonderful hosts!
