It's a good reminder that as agent, we ARE responsible for our clients, and their children, and even their dogs, should they bring them along.  :(
So, being a bit over-detailed in nature, I had my home READY for this showing.  I'd run the dustmop, arranged everything just so "artistically" (my husband laughs and says, "Will that really make or break a deal?" when I move a vase for the third time).

Gladden Farms Marana Community-Wide Yard Sale - May 5, 7 - 1
Community-wide garage sales - I love 'em!  My luck generally runs to finding only baby clothes when I randomly stop to peruse what looks like an active garage sale.  Being that my kiddies are all grown, I like to see what little knick-knacks and odd pieces of furniture folks have instead!
