Stuff. Lots of it.

PSSSST...I'm no longer blogging here!
You can now find me at

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the deal:  I have waaaaay too much junk.  And I mean 'junk' in the nicest way possible.  The "Omaga... I have to have this piece of junk" kind of way.  Like seriously beautiful, wearing their age like a crown junk.  Things I had great plans for, but zero time for. Things I think I'll shed a tear for as it leaves the premises.

Then there's the seasonal or crafty or whathaveyou stuff that I'm just tired of.  Or don't want to store anymore.  Garage sale stuff.  You know what I mean.

But..... I need it out of my house/garage/shed/attic.  I'm once again needing to streamline and declutter my life in order to make room for the stuff that really makes my heart sing....I need to work with what I've got, make it fit my lifestyle and space. Give place to those pieces and things that help me order my life and do my job as a wife, homeschool mom and friend.   I simply don't have the room to store all the odds and ends I have stashed in corners.  And I just think I have too much stuff.  It makes me feel a bit guilty, actually. 

I don't have a booth in an antiques shop or flea market.  I don't live on a farm where I can open up my barn.  I live in a no-basement cape cod in boring old suburbia at the end of a cul-de-sac.  Though I'd really love to take a shot at doing a glamorized 'junk shop' garage sale....something more than just throwing stuff all over tables and calling it good... really giving folks who love junk a chance to hear the melodies the pieces sing and find out if that song resonates....not just a 'hey will ya take a quarter for this?' kind of sale....

it ain't gonna happen this year

What is gonna happen is a blog sale.  Deborah from The Fairfield House is hosting a blog sale linky party, so I figgered I'd give it a shot.  So, I'm taking pictures and pricing my crap glorious junk and posting it here.  There's a picture up top on my sidebar that will take you directly to the page listing what's available. I'm adding more stuff each day.  I'll work out shipping and do a big mailing once a week till it's all gone.

Sound good?  Ok, then get shopping.

I need to do this too. My daughter and I were thinking of a shop so I have tons of stuff...stuffed stuff....stuff that needs stuffing...stuff that has its own stuff...Yeah..seriously ... a lotta stuff. I should do this but right now I have NO time to even get it ready.

Can't wait to see what you have though...Maybe I need some more stuff? Diana

Very cool idea! I hope you sell it all. Good luck. If you're like me, the money you bring in from selling your junk will just bring in more junk...

Where's the crap! "Things I think I'll shed a tear for as it leaves the premises." Oh my, we are so alike. I have been known to cry when I sell something in my booth that I love. I've also been known to put a sold sign on it. Of course when it's not been sold. Lol
