Mission Accomplished!

As I've mentioned a few times over the past several weeks, I've been getting ready for the semi-annual Kids' Stuff sale put on by my local twins club, BAMOM (Bay Area Mothers of Multiples).  Despite having been a member since I learned I was pregnant with twins, this was the first time I had actually participated in the sale as a seller.

What that means is that I had 6 years worth of clothes and "stuff" to sell.  Hence the reason it took me so long to actually get ready for the sale.  Of course, we didn't sell any of Pretty's clothes as we could keep that for Pickle.  So it was really only 6 years worth of Boo's clothes and the items Pickle has already outgrown.  It actually amounted to about 1000 tagged items, 750 hangers and 12 large storage bins.  And that doesn't account for the big ticket items like the highchair, infant rockers, crib mattress, car seat, swing and exersaucer; all of which sold!

We ended up coming home with 9 bins of clothes and that's it.  I'd say we were pretty successful for our first sale.  But, I have to say I'm EXHAUSTED.  We were up fairly late last night setting up and then had to be up at 5:30 am this morning to get to the sale on time to do a last minute tidy and prepare for the shopping frenzy.  I'm glad I have 5 months to regroup before the Spring sale in April 2011!
