This weekend is the humongoid Borough Yard Sale. If you know me in real life and live close you can e-mail me directly and I’ll send you directions. Our little 4-block borough with the coolest triangle-shaped park ever is transformed each year (for four hours) from a sleepy, quiet little town to a bustling and busy borough, complete with flea-market finds and beyond. I’ve seen people buy cars, boats and beds. We unload used furniture, dishes, you name it. This year I have a few friends setting up their own tables and we are giving the proceeds to various charities. Bug Boy and his cousin are getting into the act and having Alex’s Lemonade Stand and they are very excited. I’ve decided to do the hotdogs and water bottles for the Autism Walk again ($1 each, people can be even more generous when they find out it is for charity) and some friends are setting up for the Diabetes walk/step that they are doing. I am looking forward to unloading stuff, chatting with friends, seeing familiar faces, talking to my neighbors and even dealing with the whacky types…And eating. My life is all about food, you see. I’ll have coffee and bagels for my peeps.
On Sunday we continue the fun. My sister, who just signed on with Mary Kay, is coming to do a skin care class. I will have a small turn-out but it should be fine. My sister has even graciously agreed to donate a % of her sales FOR THE WHOLE MONTH of September! Very nice of her. And, since my life is all about food, I will even have noshies.
Anyways, if you are reading this and wanna come (and haven’t contacted me previously) e-mail me and let me know. If you are a stalker, ignore that last sentence. If you are Brad Pitt, you don’t even have to call first. Get here as soon as you can, mmkay?
It’s all for a good cause, so thanks in advance!
