Fall....

The leaves are almost totally gone now.  I feel like we are about to be looking at fall through the rear view mirror.
**************
Lorelei went home yesterday....even though she is not a loud child, the house just seems so totally empty when she leaves.  

******************
I am in a decluttering mood again.....we have been getting stuff ready to go to the auction.  Some of it is things we don't use....some is stuff that had been Roger's mom's or grandmother's....the girls didn't want it and I have no place for it so will let someone else enjoy it.

I am putting the baby crib...we had got it used to have when we babysat Lorelei when her mom worked.  Ended up, I think she spent maybe a total of 3 or 4 hours napping in it in all the time we babysat her, and she has spent a couple or three nights in it when she was spending the night.  It is a nice Simmons wooden crib.  We gave $35 for it used, so am wondering what we will get for it.  Since she didn't ever really use it much, it is not hard to part with.

Things really can surprise a person....I put in this old game joystick the last time we put stuff in the auction.  It really had not been used much, but it was probably at least 15 years old and it sold for either $20 or $25.  I had come so close to just pitching it a time or two but always held back.  Now I have a couple more things to put in....an old scanner that still works.  I just got a better one that scans both photos and documents AND slides.  I think there is an old  microphone here...again, it hasn't been used, but it is old.

It is always fun just to see what people want.....

every time we have had a garage sale it's the strangest things that sell and the stuff we thought would go in a flash never sold.
Good luck with your stuff that's going to auction.

It is surprising what people will buy...One person's junk is someone else's treasure!

Yes, it is very interesting to see what people want to buy, indeed. I wish I had all the old cameras I gave away. They would make a beautiful display.

Betsy Adams said...

It is amazing what people want and will buy. Things that I place no value on will become someone else's biggest treasure..... Crazy, huh????

Good Luck... Hope you make some good money at the auction.

We are having so much wind here that most of our leaves are down now....

Hugs,
Betsy

I agree that it's fascinating to see what people purchase!

The saying is another person's trash another person's treasure, or something like that. I wish you success at the upcoming auction.

good luck with the sale. that tree is simply stunning. the color makes it pretty but i am thinking is is pretty green, gold or even minus all the leaves.

Ellie said...

Like the description of looking in a rear view mirror! How true. Good luck on the auction. I'm surprised an old joy stick would bring that much.
