    I have some Waterford Crystal glasses I would like to sell. I have 32 in all, 4 different sizes. Would like to sell 16 of them and keep the other half. I think it is the Lismore pattern. My number is[masked] if interested. I live in Lynnfield, off Route 1 North near Holiday Inn.

    Thanks Jean for pulling this yard sale together today.... We had fun, socialized, ate good food and made some money all the while! Way to go!

      Kudos to you for advertising the heck out of it everywhere....nice job Ellen and posting what everyone had on CL....you had a great turn out of buyers

      Yes, we did have a long line waiting for the doors to open to get in! That was a great way to start the day :)

      March 3, 2014

  • Jean

    Thanks to everyone who helped with moving tables and chairs before and after! I did ok and hope you all did too. I actually had a good time considering it was a lot of work and was wiped at days end. I volunteer at the Lindentree Coffeehouse at night so was even more tired! But thanks so much Ellen for helping with everything!!!! Your the best and so understanding!

  • Deborah

    Thanks so much Jean for organizing the yard sale event. It was great. All of your hard work was appreciated by me and I'm sure everyone else. Thanks to Ellen for posting the event and even our individual items on Craigslist. Was great to meet everyone. I wish I could have stayed for more fun and a bite to eat after. Next time!

    March 1, 2014

  • Jean

    First time I have been able to log in, yikes, poor Meetup. Looking forward to Sat and our Yard SAle, I just made signs to put up outside on the post. Please see me when you come in and sign in at 10:30am I'll have a clip board. This is a good opportunity and only costing us our time, good luck everyone and lets have some fun with this and make some dinner money. Keep me company for dinner at Dockside afterwards. And, no snow! WooHoo!

    Anyone selling older costume jewelry? I got a call from a woman specifically looking for vintage jewelry, or at least 10+ years older. LMK

    1 · February 27, 2014

    • Jean

      I have a shoe box full but nothing of much value.

      February 28, 2014

  • Ellen C

    I've had a few responses regarding the older costume jewelry. Here's her name and number so you can discuss it with her directly: Marilyn. [masked]-9412. Hope you make some sales from this!

    1 · February 27, 2014

    • Jean

      Can get on with my phone but not computer, don't know what's up with that. Thanks for helping!

      February 27, 2014

    • Jean

      Just tried to call Merilyn in regards to jewelry, no answer, wouldn't take message said mailbox full. Just an FYI Also, I still can't get onto Meetup.com from my computers, see everyone at 10:30am to set up!

      February 28, 2014

  • Deborah

    I have some costume jewelry, clip on earrings.
    Like Kelley, I don't know if I would characterize it as "vintage".
    Also, if you can add to the CL posting I have a Baggallini Large Wallet Bag, black, new condition, cashmere lined leather gloves.
    If not, no worries.

    February 27, 2014

  • Ellen C

    I am so sorry! Craigslist ad corrected tonight. Now says 11:00 am - 3:00 pm. Added Janice's items, put the right name, Christine, to her items, added Kelley's list. Easy to do!

    February 26, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Jean, do you have an updated list of sellers you could post please....
    and I still can add people's lists to the Craigslist ad.
    ALSO, remember to FB and send emails to everyone in your address book about this; most people are eager to get started on "yard saling" ! I know, no such word....

    1 · February 26, 2014

    • Ellen C

      Hi Virginia, You mean send you the ad? Can you get onto CL and check it out? see what you think....

      1 · February 26, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Hi everyone, Check out the craigslist ad that I just posted. I called it HUGE INDOOR Yard Sale and believe it or not there are several other indoor yard sales listed for this weekend, but not near Wakefield. At any rate, you'll see how helpful it is to list out some specific items.....I'll update the list if you email me your list. I'm really bad with pictures so please don't send me any pictures of your stuff...I'll get confused and frustrated.. ;)

    2 · February 25, 2014

      Thanks for doing this, sale is 11am to 3pm with set up at 10:30am

      February 25, 2014

    Thanks for posting on CL. I noticed that the CL posting says 12 - 3 and I thought it was 11 -3.
    Either way is fine - just want to be clear. Thanks.

    February 25, 2014

    Hi Jean, I am sorry to say I can not make it this wknd... I'm sure that will make someone on the waitlist very happy :) I hope to participate in any future swaps if you do schedule another one. Thank you for all your hard work and time in organizing. I'm sure your event will be a huge success! thanks again, Mary

    February 25, 2014

    Jean could you please give someone my spot. I am at the top of the waitlist but can't attend after all. Thank you for organizing. Hope there is another, bigger one in the spring :)) Thanks Kerri P.

      Kerri I noticed u mentioned u have a garden hobby/business cld u email me I might have an interest to talk to u about

      1 · February 25, 2014

  • Anne

    Jean, I can create the wait list for you if you want or you can (1) edit the event (2) scroll down to "RSVP Settings" and click on the arrow to open that up; (3) fill in "limited to ### attendees" with 11; (4) in the same area indicate that you want a wait list. I believe it will take the first 11 and put others in the wait list in the order they signed up. Also, I did not see the instructions to note "sell", but believe I was the second one after you on the list, so I am coming with items to sell. Can you please confirm.

    1 · February 12, 2014

    • Anne

      Jean, I took myself off the list some time ago.

      February 24, 2014

    Hello Jean,replied Yes to be a Seller. Please let me know if I'm set with that. Thanks.

    February 12, 2014

    • Jean

      Donna, if you would like to sell on Sat, let me know, you are first on the waitlist and we had a person drop out...

      February 23, 2014

    • Jean

      Thanks for your quick response...I'll ask the next person on the Waitlist...

      February 24, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Just a couple of hints....if you have big items, I still can list them but obviously no room for them on the 8' table. For instance, a bedroom set or snow-blower....have a picture of them at your table. I still can list these items and interested parties can talk to you about them when they get there. PLEASE do not ask Jean or me to keep track of what you are selling. What I mean is, the people that are looking for something specific will just have to roam the room, peruse, and ask around for that item. ALSO, bring plenty of Shaw's bags for purchases and change: dollar bills and quarters. Try to remember how much $ you started with so that at the end of the sale you can figure out how much $ you've made. I find wearing a carpenter's apron with big pockets folded in half works ell for cash (or an 80's fanny pack!). I'm scared of using a portable cash box with the public.....you'll find something that works for you!

      February 24, 2014

  • kathy

    I just got the email you sent out, but I'm not in your waitlist. I rsvp'd the other day, and I'm on the waitlist here, but you didn't list me. I'd like to sell if possible.

    February 24, 2014

    • Jean

      Sorry Kathy, I have you on my printed list after Sarah--you are 10th on the Waitlist. I wish I could fit more in the room, so unfortunate but this is a start and first time for this...it's really a test to see what can be done. Others may want to do it in their area, it could just be something of a start with this idea...I'm sure other people will run them in the future. Some churches run them but everyone else charges for the space, this is all free. I organized it because I wanted to do one now, thanks!

      February 24, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Hello sellers: I am going to post this yard sale on CL. I have found it to be very beneficial to list out some of the items that we are selling. I've been going to and having my own yard sales for years and I find this very helpful in getting some people in for certain specific items. The more specific you are, the better. In the past, I've listed out and people have come and asked for: queen sized headboard, small b&w TV, MK products, costume jewelry, glassware, ceramic dishes, Plus sz clothes, tools, baby toys, kid games, puzzles, nicknacks, frames, crafts supplies and much more....etc. etc, etc. I'll say that there are 11 people selling so that they know there will be a lot of stuff and something for everyone. I would be glad to list your items. Please email me with your list. I will put it on CL in the next few days and then I update it until even that morning. I know how to get it at the top of the list!

    3 · February 23, 2014

    • Ellen C

      sure!

  • Anne19

    Hi Jean,
    Sorry to do this, but cancelled my RSVP---after thoroughly going thru my attic, am now convinced 3/4 of my "stuff" is more like junk...lol! You never know until you take a good hard look at it, you know?! Anyway, wanted to take myself off the list so someone else would have the opportunity to sell their items. Thank you again however for stepping up and doing this!

    1 · February 23, 2014

    • Jean

      I understand AnneB19 and thanks for letting me know now, appreciate your kind comment! (:

  • kathy

    I'm definitely interested in this! I hope I get on the list to be a seller!

    February 23, 2014

  • Ellen C

    Hello Jean, This sounds great! If it will be in their function room, will you be allowing a small 3' clothes rack to be set up next to an 8' table? Also, will we be using the tables that are there, or do we bring our own? Thanks for arranging this...and if you need help with anything (set-up, advertising...) please lmk.

    1 · February 12, 2014

    • Jean

      You are both SELLERS, just to clarify, thank you!

      February 13, 2014

    • Jean

      Denise you are a Seller #10 and Ellen #11

      February 19, 2014

  • Paula

    I can't believe some of these comments.. It's very clear, not everyone who signs up has commented on being a seller. Some had already signed up and were not sellers. That is where the confusion is. Don't blame the organizer. She was very clear is saying not to sign up if you don't plan to sell... AND AS WELL SAID PLEASE ADD IN THE COMMENTS THAT YOU WANT TO SELL.

    3 · February 13, 2014

    Have been brainstorming an event just like this for months. Jean you beat me to the punch:) I would have been happy to help you with this, unfortunately I was out of state and reception when you posted, (and couldn't rsvp for a table). I will post a similiar event in the very near future, those of you who also missed out feel free to join me ...will post soon......Hope all pans out well and you all sell tons of stuff! Have a great time!

      February 13, 2014

  • Linda P.

    " only sign up if you are coming to sell" which I did. That should have been enough. I am not the only one who was confused. Actually, that room is almost too small for something like this. I was there last Sat. for SoulCollage and we were cramped when trying to sit in a circle. I would rather pay something for a larger space so more could participate. I will not be attending. Linda P.

    1 · February 13, 2014

    • Jean

      I did say in the directions to COMMENT if you wanted to SELL and it was on a first come, first served basis and I would number you. I'm new at running one of these and it is a FREE event and I'm trying to give people an opportunity to sell their stuff without a cost. Let me know if you would like to help in this in the future...that would be great! It was fun at Dana's and we all squeezed in and it worked.

      February 13, 2014
