As summer comes to a close, August finds Ann Arbor full of U-hauls as graduated students move out of campus housing and into the real world. A lot of lightly-used furniture and clothing are thrown away creating monstrous overflowing piles of trash throughout the downtown. This wasn't the case for us. Wake thought of another solution to lighten his load before moving...a yard sale!
Wake's stock photo posters were a huge hit! Many of the yard sale's customers had seen the signs and thought they were hilarious. Wake also put down chalk drawings next to big restaurants nearby that brought yard sale customers into the neighborhood a few blocks away.
The yard sale actually did really well. The stuff Wake didn't sell, he donated to a local reuse center. Yay for entrepreneurship and giving objects a second life!!!
