Yard Sale News

You're too kind about my grandmother. Fortunately, I get my good genes from her, and my face looks well- pressed without the benefit of botox. Good thing 'cause I can't afford it. (I'll let you in on a secret: that's not her hair.) (Well, it is insofar as she owns it. LOL.)

I'm sorting through boxes in the basement gathering items for the neighborhood yard sale next Saturday (next week, I clean and price). I won't tell you some of the things I found down there* but I did come across a stack of crafting books I'm ready to part with. (Gee, they've only been in the basement for five years. So glad I moved them across country! To my credit, I did get rid of at least six boxes of craft books before we moved.) I've put them up there ^ on the page marked cleverly enough "sale page."

I will work on listing some charts soon.


*Let's just say collectibles from the honeymoon.

Good luck with the sale.

None of the charts I posted for sale in March went. I will probably take a bunch of them to the Salvation Army. A few might be worth posting to eBay.

Oh, good luck with the yard sale! We haven't had one in years. It was too depressing the last time when lots of families swarmed in and stole stuff. Wow, teaching your kids to be the distraction so you can lift things marked 25 cents...awesome!!

I'll be watching your cleverly marked sale page, lol! Was thinking about doing that myself. Basically, I'm just too dang lazy to get it done!

Your granny has great hair ;) I can see me owning something similar in my later years. Maybe even sooner, as more and more of my own hair falls out in each passing day. It's been falling out since I gave birth to the baby of the family 23 years ago. It sucks!
Hope I can find something that looks as nice as Maggie's does!

Me, I'm having my skull tattooed when my thinning hair reaches that point. Think I can pull it off? ;)

I don't think that I got a chance to comment on your last post, but your mother is absolutely beautiful for her age. You are so lucky if you take after her. I know a lot of older people, and they don't look half as good as Maggie does!!

I'll be watching for what you get rid of, but truth be told, I should be doing the same thing and not adding to my stash collection - but one never knows what goodies you have lurking there.
