And then it was done

Good afternoon.
Plant sale is done. 319 plants gone!
Total....$879.00
Not a bad amount at all considering the markdowns I had to do after the hail storm.
We had nearly 2 inches of rain during the night, but it quit around 5 am and no rain during the sale. Our turnout wasn't near as good as expected, and after the initial rush, I had sold $757.00 with over 80 some plants left. I went on Craig's list and advertised half off. We had a slow stream of people over the next few hours, and when I was getting down to the last 30 or so, a woman showed up and started buying everything I had left.
So, I got rid of all the plants, and still made a decent amount considering the condition of the plants. And it was all over in 4 hours. I hate sitting all day waiting for people to come and go. That's why I always price the plants to move. I'd rather make a little less, than waste my time sitting and waiting.
