Making a Living at Art, and Other Fantasies

But Nobody Bought The Yard

How many books we sold at my daughter’s yard sale depends on whether you mean the ones I wrote or the ones I read. Either way, I came back with a lighter load.

 

I’ve concluded that for most people yard sales aren’t worth the time and effort: It’s like putting all the work into setting up a small business, then shutting it down again after just three days. But in this case I got to hang out with my daughter and grandkids, so there was that.

The Perfect Yard Sale Weather, and Other MIracles

I’ve had a few outdoor book signings, which always brought the obvious worry-the weather would stink. It’s related to the garage sale rule: If you hold a garage sale, the weather will be horrible for a garage sale.

 

(I just made that rule up, but I’m not the only one who’s noticed.)

 

For my daughter’s yard sale, the strangest thing is happening: If the weather holds, it will be perfect weather. For Thursday through Saturday mostly sunny, temperatures high…

Book Signing ... at a Garage Sale?

Surrealists riddle: What do you call a book signing that’s not a book signing? A yard sale.

 

Told you it was surreal. No, seriously, it’s more a yard sale that I’ll have some books at: Both old and new books, and old books. I’m on a surrealist roll!

 

My daughter’s having a yard sale at the same time as the Kendallville city-wide garage sale, May 21-23, at her place at 521 East Diamond Street (I’m told the people next door will be having one, too). The main…
