The Pearl Strings Benefit Yard sale was a fun way to try to make money for the band. We all cleaned out our basements, which is might be the real benefit we got out of it!
We sat outside under the trees at Jen's house on two beautiful days (Friday and Saturday) and enjoyed just visiting, and playing a little guitar, banjo and uke. We scraped up enough shoppers to make about $175--not quite enough for stand banners, but if we can sell a few extra things on Craig's list, we just might make it.
We closed up shop about an hour early on Saturday, as it started to rain, but we were grateful that the weatherman was wrong about the morning rain, and we made it till 1 p.m. with no problems!
