My First Garage Sale

I was excited when received an invitation my from ex uni friend to participate in their company's garage sale

garage sale, also known as a yard salerummage saletag salelawn saleattic salemoving sale, or junk sale, is an informal, irregularly scheduled event for the sale of used goods by private individuals, in which "block sales" are allowed, so that sellers are not required to obtain business licenses or collect sales tax. Typically the goods in a garage sale are unwanted items from the household with the home owners conducting the sale. The goods are sometimes new, like-new, or just usable, offered for sale because the owner does not want or need the item, to minimize their possessions, or to raise funds.

I bongkar all my old and new stuffs like clothes, hand bags, shoes and accessories as my selling products.  I did inform my mom and sister and they also joining me by selling the same items.  The garage sale took place at Regency Park Apartment's Hall last Saturday.  About 20 booths were filled and most of us selling clothes and bags

I never thought my second hand nail colors were the hottest item that day!  I have been used 1 or 2 times of these nail color and some of them even new (suddenly I don't like the color LOL) and excessive stock at home. They were just finished within 30 minutes :) 

Next hottest item was the hand bags, our stall was the first one to finish our bags, maybe my mum sold them with a good price :)  The clothing section was ok and we managed to get sale from it also.  The sale started from 9.00 am to 2.30 pm.  The crowd; most of them the residents of Regency Park and outsiders only came in around 10.30 am.  With the participation fee of RM 20.00, I hope to get extra $$$ and yes we managed to get good $$$, yeay!  

It was indeed another good experience for me, all this time I've been doing the same thing for my previous company and got excited every time we managed to sell our product.  But, this time I got overly excited cos it was my OWN product and profit pun untuk diri sendiri hehehe

So, if I got another invitation, I wouldn't miss it!
