This was a good idea, but.... rather than charging 8-10 people $ 40/45 per spot, it would have made sense charging $ 10 getting 40 people. Also 5 hours would be better than 3. This kind of thing needs a critical mass to be worth participating in/ coming to. In my experience you can't really make money having a garage sale and it's a lot of work, so you kind of have to do it because it is a fun event. $ 40/45 it just too much to ask.
