We put a couple of tables outside our house and in the hallway and everyone seemed happy. There was lots of jokey banter. People loved seeing inside the house. And, just as important for us, many of them were kind enough to give us some of their hard earned cash in exchange for some of our vintage jumble.
Now, this is not likely to become a regular activity and is not going to compete with the likes of the antique megastores but it does show that, with a little planning and preparation, we can return a small profit. What a fun way to spend five hours!
