For anyone popping in for the first time, read this to hear about my little hoarding problem. It's not a big problem, just a little one. Not the "save every candy wrapper" kind of hoarding problem, but it's a problem just the same, and I'm extremely motivated to deal with it now.
Here are a few more goodies that have never found a place in my home.
These things all look like they should fit perfectly, but you all know how it is when something just doesn't work. These things just don't work. I love pink, but too much in my house makes it feel like a baby nursery. And as I don't currently have a baby, there ya go.
Chenille. This is one of two bedspreads I have.....I still haven't decided about the other one, but this one's going for sure.
And chenille cuts for pillows. We all know how the pillow thing turned out.
One of my boys had a very cool vintage baseball room when he was young.
I don't remember where this came from, but isn't it the coolest thing for my home office? Only, I don't have a home office. And never will.
Lots of bits of china that aren't displayed in the cabinet, and I know will never be pulled out even on the very rare occasion that I set the table with my vintage china.
I have four different piles going. Ebay/Etsy, a local antique store, the flea market, and a charity garage sale. Things too large to ship will stay local.
I've never sold anything, and I'm always intimidated by things I know nothing about. I'm leaning toward Ebay over Etsy, mainly because I want a definite ending date and an auction will serve that purpose, and also because I would find it quite difficult to actually set prices. I think I'll start fairly low and see where things go from there.
Every penny I make is going to Compassion International's Disaster Relief Fund. I cannot possibly say anything about Haiti that could speak louder or better than the images we are all seeing on TV. They speak for themselves.
If you have a desire to give, and have not yet found the right place, you can read about Compassion's financial integrity here.
I'm getting closer, but it's probably going to be February before I'm ready to start selling.
If you have any Ebay selling tips, I'd love to hear them.....if you need any Ebay buying tips, I'm your girl!
