                 Christie's Antique Sale Results
We had a great day at the sale. For one the weather was absolutely perfect. Hubbie and I ended up making 2 trips to the sale, one on Friday night with a load and back again on Saturday morning with a car load and truck load. We left at 4:40am on Saturday!!! The sale opened at 8:00am, I happened to go to the office to ask a few questions, passing by the main gate at 7:45 and there were about 50 people waiting to get in! On Friday, we just dropped off our load, wrapped a tarp around it and left. So on Saturday we had  alot of work ahead of us. Mind you I love to set up the displays. A lady even complimented me on our booth. Being our first sale I was flattered. We did well as far as the sales went. Many "smalls" sold(check out my previous post on smalls). No dressers sold which made me nervous thinking that we wouldn't be able to fit everything in our vehicles for our return trip home. But Dan being the master packer did it!! I was so proud of him. We really enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully return in May for the next sale.
