|Trees just over the fence in our back yard|
Today their friend was sitting on the side of the road selling bags of cherries. He told my Rotten's that when he was done it was okay if they took over the territory and sold cherries too. It took them about 2.5 seconds to go pick cherries, make a sign and get ready to go!
|All the necessary sales tools|
The funniest thing about it all is we do not even own the cherry trees and luckily the owners are nice enough to let the kids pick the cherries (thank you). So I believe that is 100% profit for the lucky little buggers!
They left with a cooler, sign and 5 bags of cherries to get set up at the busiest stop sign in town. Now when I say busiest, I mean that maybe 10 people drive by in an hour span.
|How could you not stop?|
About 20 minutes after I took the above photo they were back at the house looking like this...
Thanks to one of their customers (Mr. Fabulous' best friend) that bought 3 bags, they sold out right away! So of course they went and picked 10 more bags of cherries and headed back out the door.
They are still gone at this point and I find myself thinking about when I was a kid and sold lemonade, cookies, puppies, old toys and anything else we could think of from a little stand out in front of our home. Because of where we live my kids can enjoy the same little things and it makes my heart so happy.
