One's trash, another's treasure.

We put together a little garage sale of other peoples' things and set up shop on Aylin's lawn last weekend. Tyson's bike was stolen recently, and I wanted to find a way to help contribute to him getting back on wheels. Overall the sale was a total success, but it was also a ton of work. We made signs and posted them around the neighborhood where the sale took place. We drove around and picked up items from peoples' homes who so graciously donated to the sale. And at the end of the day, we made $220, and $35 will go to Bikeworks, which I'm pretty pumped about.

Aylin popped her head out around 8:30am last Saturday and told us to get off her lawn. She then proceeded to help us set up, entertain me and bring me water intermittently. Oh Aylin.

After also selling a donated bike frame on Craigslist the total "fund" is up to $325. Amazing what you can get without actually spending any money.

Photos from the Columbia City bakery where we stopped for coffee, Pear Cardamom coffee cake and donut before the big sale event. Yum. That's all there is to it.
