1/3 of what is to be sold (hopefully).

 

On this Saturday afternoon I am questioning my judgement.  My sanity.  My organizational skills.  And my Ebay prices.

Oh, dear.

I’ve been at this “cleaning the basement” thing for over a week now.  There have been good days and bad days.  I have sorted through many, many bins of fabric and curtains and drapes and bedspreads and have photographed each piece at least four different ways.  I have measured fabric and have folded drape panels and have written descriptions on note cards before packing each item into a zip-lock bag.  I have weighed everything, one thing at a time, on my brand new postal scale.

Now I’m at the “listing” stage, which is not exactly zooming along.

Would anyone like peach curtains?

Here are the 10 things that are now on Ebay.  Please pray that someone buys this stuff, okay?

I know someone wants that pink poodle valance with the pompoms!!!

If I ever buy another piece of vintage fabric again, I want you to take me by the hand and lead me to the asylum.  I promise to go willingly.

My daughter caught the Ebay spirit and brought her wedding gown to me to sell this morning.  What a great idea!  It’s always a shame to think of wedding gowns stuffed into boxes when they could be used again–and again–by thrifty brides.

Love those daisies!

 

Banjo Man was very impressed with my progress in clearing off the basement shelves.  Unfortunately the living room and dining area look like a fabric bomb exploded.  There are shipping bags and boxes stacked everywhere.  By tomorrow night I hope everything will be back down in the basement, bins tucked neatly under the folding table I’ll use as my shipping center when hordes of eager fabric-buyers fight to purchase my collection.

Wish me luck.
