No, you are not liable. She apparently tripped and fell because it was raining. This condition was open and obvious. You did nothing wrong. First of all, it was not even your house. The fact that you were having a sale there does not make you liable for any accident that occurs on the property. The only way you would be liable is if you knew of a dangerous condition that the sale-goers did not and you failed to warn them. For example, if you knew there was oil on the steps and failed to warn her and she slipped on the oil, you would be liable. But the water was a known danger. So you are not liable.
