Yard Sale!

It looks like the yard sale is a go for tomorrow. The weatherman keeps switching up the forecast, but right now it looks like the morning, at least, may be rain-free, so I'm going to give it a shot.

I have got a shed FULL of crap to sell; I've spent hours and hours sorting through my stuff. All that photography that I framed and matted (and tried and failed to sell at craft shows)? It's going. The Breyer's horse models that I collected as a kid back in the seventies? Three bucks a pop. Boxes and boxes of books? See ya!

If I make enough for a good used lawnmower, I'll be thrilled.

Wish me luck! And if you find yourself in the beautiful Southern Tier of upstate New York tomorrow, feel free to stop by - it's gonna be bargain city!

How many of the Breyer horses do you have? You might be money ahead selling them in a couple of large lots on eBay. The old ones in good condition sell briskly, but for me, they wouldn't be worth farting around with the boxing up and mailing unless I was getting rid of a number of them at a whack.

Here's an example of the type of lot I'm talking about.

You know, I nosed around ebay - I've got about twenty-five of them, but they all were "well-loved" and are in far from mint condition.

I think I've got a couple that may be worth something, but the rest are probably just usable as toys, so I figured three bucks each would even it out.

Of course, if none of them sell tomorrow, I'll be looking at ebay again!

Confession: I kept my favorite two. I couldn't part with all of them.

Are you getting rid of your "pity" purchases from thrift stores? Like the sad-cat purse?

Oh, no, kitkat, I could never get rid of the sad-cat purse!
