I’m not sure where she got the idea in her head but Hazel has been looking forward to the Blackburn Hamlet community garage sale for over a month now because she’s been wanting to have a lemonade stand.
Last weekend we built the stand. Midweek we picked up some lemonade and pink lemonade juice cans along with some lemons and some cups. Friday night Hazel drew her signage and we practised her spiel. Saturday morning at 7AM we opened for business.
The typical customer interaction went like this:
Customer: Could I have some lemonade?
Hazel: Yes. Yellow or pink?
Hazel would then pour some lemonade into a glass sometimes with the help of her cousins when the pitcher was full. Then she would take the quarter received and put it into her pink piggy bank.
Customer: That’s very good lemonade.
Hazel (shyly): Thank you.(Prompt from Dad) Come back later!
Our rough estimate is she went through seven juice cans, over 80 cups and made a little over $20 selling lemonade at 25 cents a glass.
