We made it through the week... I was privileged to attend THREE lia sophia parties this week put on by my friend, Emily, with all the commission going to the orphanage. We had a good turn out and they booked some additional parties whose commissions will also go to the orphanage. We haven't closed the shows, yet so there is still time to order and have part of the sale go directly to the orphanage. You can order by using the steps listed here.

I mentioned that we have a big yard sale coming up - again with the proceeds going to the orphanage. Thanks to Candice for getting the O signed up for spaces at this sale!

Candice put together a nice list of things that sell well at these things. If you're in our area and would like to donate something to the yard sale, please email me at lolorosen at rapidwave dot net.
  • appliances – both large and small, working and non-working
  • baby equipment – new parents and grandparents are shopping!
  • books - paperback and hard cover, any genre
  • children's toys – kids discover them, parents buy them
  • china / pottery – put on display as a place setting if possible
  • clothing – displayed properly, used clothing = dollars
  • compact discs – music that you no longer listen to
  • costume jewelry – a BIG seller, so price accordingly
  • flatware – silver, stainless steel, etc
  • garden tools – make sure that they're clean
  • kitchen utensils & gadgets – these will sell like hotcakes!
  • linens / bedding – washed and pressed, these are hot items
  • patio furniture – these will probably sell in the first hour
  • phonograph records / tapes – yep, people will buy them
  • pictures / frames – people love old photographs
  • plants – more about this later!
  • shoes / boots – women's shoes are especially big sellers
  • software – in the box, with instructions, very big at sales
  • sports equipment – bats, balls, gloves, masks, etc
  • tools – the perfect way to keep a man occupied at the sale
  • video tapes – sell the movies that you're tired of
