Do you like rummage sales? (yard sales, garage sales, etc?)
I do. I'm not rabid about it, but I enjoy the hunt for things I would like, but won't pay retail for. Plus, that's pretty much the only way I've been able to get "new" stuff for awhile. You know that dang thing called a budget?
So, tomorrow I'm having my own rummage sale. I've been meaning to have one for a couple years now.
Meant to have one before I moved. Didn't work that way, because of a sudden early push from the new homeowner/ landlord. Only had 6 weeks to build a foundation and move a house and move all my accumulated stuff of 20 years.
Yeah, didn't happen.
So I've had these boxes downstairs for a good 20 some months now. Didn't quite remember what all was in them, but knew I wasn't ready to just give them away. There was some nice stuff in there.
Wedding gifts of leaded crystal. Antiques that I had weeded out. Sports equipment. Electronic type stuff that we "had to have" at the time.
I wasn't the 'shopper' in the family.
It was an issue. :)
I can't believe what all I've found in those boxes. Believe it or not, so far nothing has even remotely interested me in bringing it back into the fold.
I just wish I had a little more time and organization to put more out.
Guess I'll have a head start on my next sale!
I just wish I could go to the other 4 sales that are in town tomorrow ... LOL
