Clearance Sale Results and...I need advice from you!

Our first upstairs Clearance Sale is over, & I'm happy to say it went very, very well! Yay!
Lots of people got lots of stuff. Yay!
And when they saw the prices - what do you think they said? Yep, they said "Yay!"


Some asked, "Are you going out of business?"
No, we aren't. This was just a way to sell extra's, & things that had sat too long.
Simply a clearance sale.

Others asked, "Are you going to open the upstairs for sales more often? Every year? In the fall? Next week?"

That one is a little tougher to answer. We will do it again. How often? Hmmm, maybe once a year, or maybe spring and fall. Probably this fall.

And that is where I need your input. I would love to hear from you concerning this. When do YOU think a good time to have a fall clearance sale upstairs would be?

September? October? November?
On a Friday? Saturday? 
Just one day? Both days? 
Maybe Friday evening & Saturday morning?
How about the day of the Christmas parade? 
Or Black Friday? 
Or should it be held on it's own day?

Really, I would LOVE to get some input on this.
Feel free to email me at

Or leave a comment here.
Or on facebook.
Which reminds me, some people asked where to watch for info on another sale. The best place is here on the blog, and on facebook. I would like to have more followers on facebook, so I can reach more people with news on sales etc.

I would really appreciate it if you would help me spread the word. If you would suggest to your facebook friends to "like" me, I would be eternally in your debt. Or something like that. Anyway, I would appreciate it!

It's been a long couple of weeks getting ready for the sale, and now, I'm pretty much exhausted. Tonight, I may go to bed really early. It's a good night to "go to bed with the chickens"!

Only I'm too tired to hang on to a roost. I think I'll just sleep in my comfy bed!
