Most of it was gone by noon.
I'm tired. I intend to cut it back next year; make it more manageable. A one day sale - Saturday. Anyway, I'm glad the uncertainty is over and I've got a little cash for some home improvement.

Excellent. A few days ago, when you said you had 800 pots, I wondered
what you'd be left with and worried that you were setting yourself up
for disappointment. This is great.

....has rebounded.  At least here it seems to have.

All year I was unable to take my vacation time, office was too
hectic.  I ended up taking almost every afternoon off in March to
get it in before my anniversary date.  March was so deliciously
superb that I got a ton of stuff potted - and more in April -
together with what I'd potted last fall and some items I'd ordered.
I ended up with well over 800 pots for my spring plant sale.  I had
to take 2 days off just to set it up.  It's a 2 day association
garage sale and rain was looming but it looked like Friday would be
safe.  Still, I thought I'd end up stuck with half my stock and have
to lug it back into the backyard.

Word got out and the eager buyers swooped in at 6:45am Friday.  They
picked me clean - even the seedlings and cuttings still in the
backyard that I was holding over for use in my August sale.
Everything gone. Fast, very fast. People were grabbing things I
hadn't even tagged yet because I thought I'd get to them for
Saturday.  People that showed up after work  wondered where the sale
was. I had to apologize profusely; this has never happened before.
And then there's tomorrow.  Geez, I hope it rains so I don't have to
face them.

I think people are ready to shop.  At least for plants they are.
