It helped them to empty their bedroom making a little bit money. We just had two or three little books and toys to sell...
We woke up at 4 o'clock in the morning to go to Bandol, a small town close to where we live.
I let my children install everything. They liked it a lot.
When the sun risen, it was cloudy and we had some rain drop. It was cold. I just crossed my fingers.
Early in the morning, you'll meet people who want to buy your products very cheap, to sell them into their own stand.
Bandol is a rich little town. It was so strange to make an attic sale, in front of luxurious yacht. Such a contrast with some needy persons we met.
Daybreak. Still cloudy and cold.
Firsts interessant buyers.
Some others stands.
Then, our sun made his entry !
And everything changed.
My children sold almost everything. Here's a pic we took at the end of the morning. At the end of the afternoon, they were exhausted but happy.
My son is a real good seller. He impressed me. He knows how to haggle over.
I stayed in the background, looking at them and giving them some advices time to time. But in a global way, I let them do what they wanted to do.
My daughter was more shy. And she, CURIOUSLY, had less things to sell while her bedroom is FULL of trifles !
... Maybe next time, I'm keeping the faith !
We liked this day. Even if it was tiring. Meeting and talking to people was a real enriching experience. Human experience. Not only financial one.
It helped me to reconcile myself to humanity... Because you know, lately, I have to say humanity just deceives me so much.
This day, I saw the good part of people.
I think we'll do it again.
Have a good week-end, friends.
