Yard Sale Part 2 - Day 3.
I just dont understand why a shoplifter would go to a garage sale and steal. But then again I guess its easy prey.
It was about 3pm and this van pulls up, out of the van comes women, there were 7 of them. Only one spoke English and it was broken at that. They spoke amongst themselves in their language, then the one came over holding a tea set and asked how much? I said $30.00. (the tea set was a collectors item.) She turns around and relays the message to the others. A couple of other people showed up and started asking questions. So I did not really pay attention the the ladies that was grouped up. I am not really sure at what point that they left, but they took with them, the tea set, 2 candles w/holders, 1 vase, and a couple of movies. I figured they got away with $50.00 worth of stuff.
I had more people show up but they really did not buy. I mean a dime here and a dime there.
I had two neighbors ask about the sign that is on my telephone pole: Humane Society - Not Here. I made a post about someone leaving a dog in my yard. After I explained why I did it, they totally understood.
This SUV showed up with two ladies in it. They were garage sellers, they knew how to haggle. I actually loved it. They were the first in the past three days that actually did it and did it right. They got me down from $20.00 to $12.00. But it was all good, I got out of it what I wanted and they got it for a good price. I think the coolest part about them was they were having a good time. We laughed about silly things. I guess they liked that, because they came back and bought more stuff.
Back to the Shoplifters. I am angry with myself over it. Cause if I was working in a Merchandise shop, I would have been on high alert, looking for shoplifters. But why wasn't I on high alert with this. Was it because I was at home? Did I let my guard down?
This kind of thing makes me so frustrated.
