  4. Congratulations Jeanine! The sale looked awesome! I wish I could have come. :( You should consider doing a tutorial on booth selling and all that you could teach a lot of us. Putting something like that on your blog would be so helpful to others maybe considering garage sales, etc. for getting rid of a lot of our "stuff". Think about it. You really are an expert at it and have a lot to offer.
    Thanks for the pics!
    Best~
