the garage sale is dead

This week’s newsletter is light on the words and heavy on the audio/visual. We had a garage sale earlier this summer, which is when I learned the garage sale is dead. A handful of friends stopped by to hang out and that made the day so lovely. But we only had about a dozen customers, so we didn’t make much money, and more crucially since we were downsizing, we didn’t get rid of enough stuff! People kept telling us that our signage wasn’t good."But I stapled 30 hand-drawn flyers all over town and we posted ads online!" I would cry. Our friends kept saying to just use Facebook Marketplace. Facebook What? At the end of the day we snapped some photos of our stuff and hawked our wares on that website where your least favorite uncle publicly rages about welfare. Our stuff started selling like hotcakes.
