This fall, I have been helping a neighbor lighten her load. A collector with an appetite for many different things, she lives in a lovely little home that is running out of room. So she asked me to help her decide what to sell, what to keep, and what should be taken straight away to the thrift store.
First, we headed down to her very organized basement to look through boxes, boxes, and more boxes! We began by grouping similar things together, and little by little, we had put together a number of sellable items destined for my Etsy shop and eBay. Here’s what she decided to sell . . .
Ceramic pottery in shades of green, gold, chartreuse and aqua
A large lot of small oil cans
Kitschy French Poodle collectibles
Glass, metal and ceramic flower frogs
And an assortment of vintage miscellany. My, that’s a lot of stuff!
Slowly but surely, I've been listing these relics. Happily, several have sold. Soon I'll be focusing on the Poodle lot as well as a collection of doggie brooches I've yet to photograph.
