Well, we sorta decided.
At the last minute.
But we did it. I craigslisted it. I even sent out an email to a few friends.
The gist was:
It's gonna be nice weather. We should be outside.
How about together? Don't buy anything from us.
But swing by.
And they did. And it was a fantastic day.
I've never had a stoop sale as an adult.
I think I've had a house sale and there was something to that.
But this had a different energy. It felt like a real community building thing this time. Especially when everyone in your building has some time to hang with you during the day.
Titled it " A Tiny Stoop Sale", which felt like an autobiography title. Put up a couple signs.
And made tags for many of the items. I used card blurps (cards that printed wrong size) for the hang tags. I wrote a thought or two about the item. I wanted to write complete history but, in the end, didn't take the time. The obsessive in me held back.
