    I did very well early Sat. morning in selling small stuff- a lot of it but no big money. The rest of the weeken was a flop so I used the time to dig out more from closets, drawers, etc. and prepare it for this coming weekend. I have been listing stuff on cra****ist during the week, too, and usually sell a few things in between like that. Thanks for asking! I need to make a trip or two to the dump now to start getting rid of residual trash. I've had several yard sales over the past 2-3 monthsd and it's funny how a few things sat here forever and never sold, then they would suddenly get snatched up by someone who didn't even ask me to lower the price.

    I'm being somewhat careful- I've noticed buyers are being a little cautious, too. When it's heavy items, usually a husband and wife come and I'm fine with that. I always make sure I talk to the person on the phone at least once before giving my address. If it's a male and we're discussing a small item, I either meet them somewhere public or we trade on the front porch during daylight hours. A woman by herself- I don't worry too much. So far I haven't had any problem (*as she knocks on wood*) other than people not showing up occasionally which is annoying but obviously not threatening. I have been worried that my neighbors might start thinking I'm dealing drugs over here with the people coming and going quickly and obviously handing me money- there's NO WAY I'd do that though. I did have to catch myself when a couple of people asked how I'm surviving when being unemployed so long and I said "I'm selling stuff"- their eyes got huge and I immediately said, "not that kind of stuff". LOL!

    I think she just left out the "igsl" as to not directly put the name of another web site here. It was cra****ist.
