Yard Sale #2 SUCCESS!!!

Wow!  So....here's a quick rundown.

Yard Sale number 2 happened yesterday.  We still had some things left over and friends/family members donated some additional items.  My goal was simple...$500 for the day.  Although we made much more from yard sale #1, I figured $500 was adequate as I knew I wouldn't be able to put as much time into marketing/advertising and many of our family members/friends had already been to sale #1.  Now the two things I did do was place it on Craigslist and hire the same young man to hold our sign on the main street for a few hours.

So our total funds raised for the day.....$1081.36!!!!  God truly blew me away!  As I came back from a quick errand during the yard sale, I asked God....I know I had a smaller goal of $500 but if You would help us hit the $1,000 mark, that would be truly awesome!  Simply appreciative of His awesomeness!

Thanks so much for your continued prayers and words of encouragement!  Your girl is pooped but it's 6:45am and I've got to get to work this morning!  The first service starts at 8:30am.  I'm looking forward to an awesome time of worship with our church family.  See ya and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Michelle,
I just wanted to re-introduce myself. I'm Molly, who stopped by your first garage sale. I've been to Ethiopia and have been been involved with international adoption (Latin American/USA). I'm excited about your little girl and I keep you in prayer!
Do you still sell Unlimited Blessings?
