Garage Sale Extras

…made some signs for a neighborhood garage sale and totally took the safe route…

…but considering the audience, it wasn’t like I could (or should) have gone crazy. Afterwards, while managing the register I drew these…

…which amount to more of a Gig Poster style and suggest more of an event than mere garage sale. Probably not exactly fair, huh? And while obviously not readable at a glance…well, like I always need to care about that.

Earlier in the week my daughter planned to sell lemonade during the sale (with 1/2 the profits going to the local SPCA) so I thought I could help her with her signage. -No go. She wanted total control. So what do you say to a 7-year old who wants to make their own lemonade stand signs? Yeah. You hand them the markers and shut up. -But I had this bubbly, graffiti style lettering and this lil’ guy all planned out…
