The antiques and collectibles sale is here. Anne has been working for this day for over 6 months. Every room in our house has been full of boxes; our garage has been full of boxes. The research and pricing of items goes on constantly. I have even been sucked into research. Items were cleaned, packaged and put away in boxes.
These photos are from yesterday when we were setting up. Through the pouring rain, we loaded up the pickup truck twice and the station wagons five times. And, then, we unloaded them and pushed and shoved the boxes into a small holding room. Then, last night, after all the church programs were finished, the tables were set up and a team of helpers unpacked all the stuff.
So, now we're ready for the sale. I'll post the results tomorrow. The house sure seems empty, though.
