Toilet Anyone? It's Free....

So today (*cough, post options cough cough*) we had our second carport sale (which if you live where there are no carports, it would be called a garage sale or yard sale). Continued from last week!! Last friday we had one and then expected rain on Saturday (and rain it did. Drizzly dreary stuff, I'll say.) so we postponed the second day of our sale to today.

Well, it just so happened that the people on the corner of our block were having a carport sale too!! (Which was really helpful for advertising purposes.) Anyways, they were closing their sale earlier and they let us pick through their stuff to see if we could sell any of it for our sale. (Their sale was raising funds for a missions trip and they were about to take the rest of it to Goodwill.)  And guess what they had?

That's right. A toilet. And they tried so hard to convince us to take it off their hands. The girl Beka walked down and was talking to dad about it (after me and Cam had asked him and he already said 'no.') and finally Dad was like, "Alright alright, we'll take it. As long as you can get two strong boys to carry it down." And Beka laughs and says, "Oh, they're already on their way!" (She was kidding of course, but it was funny!)

Then, we were trying to brainstorm different ways to use the toilet: a swivel desk chair, a flower pot, dog bowl... In the end, we put it on the street with a "FREE" sign on it. And you know what? It was stolen in the middle of the night!! I guess someone wanted it! :)
