We held a rummage sale at our house last Saturday. I don't think they call them rummage sales down here, more garage or yard sales according to Craigslist.
Rummage sales down here are a little different than they are back in WI. Even though we were ready by 7 to be open, we had people showing up ready to browse beforehand. Once we were open, we did most of our sales between 7 and 10, we were swamped most of the time. By 1 pm, the crowd dwindled and so did most of our goods, so we closed up for the day. Quite nice to have just a one day sale. It was fun to meet people in our neighborhood. We also met a bunch of friendly snowbird friends of my parents. We were happy to sell most of our clutter and make a little extra money. Being so successful, we are already talking about plans of doing it again next winter.
