Good Day

Just a short note:  I had a very good day at the De Anza Flea Market.  It is not as "junkie" as some, and there was a steady flow of educated customers.  


They were knowledgeable enough to know what was a good price, and if I said no to a lower offer they still bought what they wanted.


The market is only held once a month at a local Jr. College.  You have to apply a month in advance.  This was my first time.  The lady next to me said that junk dealers might get in once, but were routinely rejected after that.


I won't be doing another until closer to the house being on the market.  I might do the one that is the first week of December and sell Christmas stuff.  We shall see.


The weather was good, so I didn't use the mold canopy.  I'm going to try spraying it with a bleach solution and if that doesn't work, just toss it .


Tired tonight.  Ready for bed.  I did see the sunrise this morning, but it was overcast.


Going to a BBQ party tomorrow.

  6. You might want to try Awesome on the tent cover. It is $1 in a spray bottle at Dollar Tree. Read the bottle to be sure, but I don't think it should damage the cover. I used it on a vinyl golf cart cover that was yucky when we bought a used golf cart last year.

  7. I'm glad to hear the sale worked out well. Sounds like a good idea for Christmas stuff. We sold tons of that stuff last December and I was glad to be rid of it!

  11. Glad it was a good sale. Nice to have a place to go instead of just out of the garage. Its always helpful when you have a lot of potential customers.
