Excuse Me While I Sleep...

It was an exhausting weekend.  An exhausting week.  Heck, an exhausting month!  And this weekend we went from this:

Saturday morning
 To this:

End of Saturday

To this:

Sunday afternoon, beginning of pack up
 Until we sent the last few items to a thrift store

Good bye, leftovers!

And locked the doors



And counted the money



MORE THAN $28,000 worth of it!!!!!

I'd say it was time and energy well spent, wouldn't you?  

(Note to SPCA volunteers:  There are many more photos, and I will edit and make them available for you to view over the next couple of days.  I don't post photos of identifiable individuals on my blog without their permission - I'll get Gail to send out an email to all volunteers to tell you how/where to access them).

Congrats Jean, seems to me you need a big "drinkie"...a really BIG drinkie!!
I was so impressed with the organization at the sale, everything looked great. And, I was thrilled with my purchases as well.
Thanks for what you do!

Congratulations! That is amazing!

I wish I lived closer - I had my eye on a dog crate or two that I saw in your photo.

NEWS FLASH! CORRECTION! Our math skills obviously weren't the greatest at the end of the day yesterday. The official total turned over to the Cowichan and District SPCA (after paying hall rental etc) is:
$33,581 !!!!!!!!!!!!!
