What a day we had this past Saturday. One of the board members said that the third Saturday was always a busy day because people procrastinated and then showed up on the last day. But that’s o.k., better last day than not at all.
At the beginning of the day we worried that we would have all sorts of goodies left over. When we had an hour to go before we closed down, I lowered the price by 50%, making everything on the table 2/$1.00. Stuff started selling like crazy, which was good! At the end, I took home some of my caramel corn, a bit of the fudge I had made, and some Nutty Buddy bars that were donated by one of the members who didn’t have time to bake. All good… everyone was happy, and we just might keep the schedule the same for next year. We had been discussing only doing the first Saturday of December, but after this past Saturday’s success, I’m thinking we’re just going to have to find a way to encourage people to come on the second Saturday rather than waiting until the last Saturday to get their pictures taken. We shall see…
One of the big draws to this fundraising event is the G-scale train layout. The kids love it (and the adults have fun watching it as well).
It’s hard to believe, but now that the bake sale is behind me, I need to bake for my own gift-giving! LOL
That’s all for now — be safe, be well, and please be happy. Remember to be grateful, and to tell those you love that you love them.
