Upside Downsizing Update

By
Real Estate Agent with Resource One Realty, LLC

Well today was the first day of the rummage sale.  If you're a steady reader of my blog, you know that I and my six brothers and sisters are in the process of downsizing my mother into a bigger home than she currently has. (you may have to read that sentence again).

After setting up the tables and the merchandise, I was amazed and the amount of knick knacks, picture frames, romance novels and various jelly jar glasses she has collected over the years.  Almost every item had a story and she remembers most of them. 

It was at that point that I realized that that collection of items I saw as junk was really pieces to the puzzle of her life.  What would the pieces to the puzzle of your life look like? 

It's not that any of the items had any real sentimental value. It's just that they represented souvenirs from past vacations, gifts given to her by loved ones or times when money was tight and it was hard to provide for her growing family (jelly jar glasses). 

The sale continues tomorrow so we get the Saturday crowd.  So far, if I pay all the expenses for ads, pricing stickers, etc., I've lost $3.32.

She's talking about expanding the sale into next week.  I told her it was OK with me as long as it was our going out of business sale.

Take care and stay tuned.

OK... I have had the same thing happen to me... Almost word for word... Call your friends and have them come buy something.... ANYTHING and meke your mom feel better... It will cost you a couple more bucks ($20-30), but your mom can move on and give the rest to salvation army and do the community a favor in the process...

I love rummage / yard / garage sales...if the weather is good you'll get a crowd!  Best wishes for a good sale, and yes, I read that "bigger house" sentence twice!
