The weather on Saturday, May 1, 2021 was perfect, and helped make our garage sale a huge success. More than 50 people had registered to hold a sale or set out their free items in their driveway. In addition, many others also posted their addresses and for-sale or give-away items on the MLN email list. Others just set their no-longer-needed items out at the end of their driveways.
Messages of appreciation included these:
R: Thanks for organizing… a great turnout! Much of our long-unused stuff is now in new hands.
N: We met some new neighbors, and it was fun. I got rid of some things I never use.
D: We walked around for 2.5 hours, viewing goods, but mostly chatting. It was wonderful to see old friends and meet new people.
L: I had the best emotional day in a very long time! To see people, converse, see them find treasures that lit up their faces, and to simply give things away, all contributed to a memorable day. This was way more than a neighborhood garage sale. This was a glimpse of normal. The timing was perfect. Thank you for the hard work to make it happen for all of us.
