Yard Sales

I've been toying with this idea for quite some time but wasn't sure
how to initiate it.  But I met a gal this weekend who solidified
the details for me.  Thanks, Amy!  Anyway, thought I'd see
what you all think.  Just post a comment to let me know.

Ok.  We all have too much stuff that we don't use.  I
hesitate to call it junk.  or crap.  because, honestly, it's a
treasure to someone!  So we're going to have a customer yard
sale.  You'll pay us $10 & we'll give you a code to write on
the stuff you'd like to part with, along with your price (remember, this
is a yard sale).  We'll collect it for a time & then have a 3
day yard sale...I'm thinking in June.  After the yard sale, any
remaining items will be donated to charity.  Currently, I'm
thinking of the women's shelter, but if you have a better idea, let me
know.  You, my dear customers, will be paid for your sold items in
store credit.  How cool is that?  You get rid of the stuff you
no longer want....and get store credit to buy hot new items!  And
the best part?  You don't have to be there for the yard sale! 
We'll take care of the setting up & selling of it.  You just
come collect your credit.

Anyone interested?
