Can you Sell Christmas Stuff in June?

Can you sell Christmas stuff in June?? ......well, I guess not at the auction we were at on Saturday!

The auctioneer bundled about 20 boxes of Christmas together and tried to get a bid on them.    The boxes and totes were all under two long couldn't even see what was in them. one bid......
H poked me and said "bid on that".   I looked at him like he was crazy.....he poked me again and said "BID on that"
What would I do with 20 plus  boxes of misc. Christmas items?????????
Well,  Kyleigh   (she was with us) had been looking at the I bid the minimum!
Here is the car loaded with all the excess that is headed to the Light House today to be donated....
There were tons of bears that the kids will enjoy at Christmas.
Why was H so insistant that I bid?   He had spotted this train under all those boxes....I guess no one else had.   H had to leave the auction to go home and get the trailer to get all of it.   Was it worth it.....I think so!  $1 for all!  The train was originally $280 at ran perfect...!!!
