Yesterday despite the torrential rainfalls Vancouver is experiencing I had a nice turn-out for this sale. Al Pasternak author of Bokashi Blog stopped by and purchased some strawberries another odds and ends. We had first met at Northern Voice. Was great to see you again Al. :) He snapped the pic of me above in the rain. Eyes closed. Umbrella in hand. I was disheveled yesterday. Today, I am showered, clean and brought out more things for sale.

My old colour theory instructor stopped by and bought some lilies, the wild rose bush, an iron and other stuff. One woman dismantled the shelf in my storage shed, bought it and also purchased the tools I gave her to use to take it apart.

I didn’t refuse any offers yesterday.(I did refuse the following day on Tuesday). Come and make an offer! Oh and I’ve begun yelling at other people who have rooftop decks in my neighborhood that I am having a sale. You know what, it works.

  1. Gorgeous Jessica… :)

    I love the rain, I wished it rained here more often, the smell, the aftermath, its a wonderful season.

  2. I wish I could join in on the sale. As it is is, I’ll join in on the chorus: You’re looking good Jessica, closed eyes, torrential rain and all.

  3. Ah you all… *blush*.

    I haven’t forgotten about you all. I have been extremely busy as it’s not like me to not respond to comments or read friends blogs.

    People have been great at the sale. 4 out of 5 are buying and that is cool. I’m not getting undercut and they are haggling with me. Yay for hagglers and honest people coming to my place from craigslist. This whole adventure gives me renewed hope in humanity. Weird maybe but genuinely nice.

    Tomorrow (WEDNESDAY) I am opening in the evening from 5:00 to 8:00. I wish I could take pictures. At the moment I am unable to, due to missing parts for my camera.
