We're currently in the throes of one of those urges - our "G-Sale Extravaganza" starts next Wednesday and we're getting the clutter out! :D
Now, you'd think that being a collector of vintage goodies, I'd have a very hard time getting rid of any of my stash. And for the most part, that's true. But there also comes a time when even I have to say, "Enough's enough!"
Over the past three years, I have amassed a wealth of wonderful vintage magazines, starting with a gigantic pile of old Lifes that I got at an auction in August of 2009. Since then I've picked up more (it's an illness), plus a ton of Better Homes & Gardens, Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, Woman's Day and Collier's. I currently have more magazines than I'll ever be able to use in my lifetime, even if I did a collage per day. So out go some of my old Lifes..
the post where I talked about them. If I'm being honest, I could get rid of HALF of them and still have enough left for me to be content. So into the sale they go!
Apparently at some point I was on a quest to obtain every single new-old stock can label that was ever produced. I think I've come close to doing just that! If I got rid of even a THIRD of my old labels I don't think I'd even miss them. I hope they sell!
So there you have it - just a sampling of the vintage stuff we'll be selling at our awesome garage sale! (Disclaimer: the photos are just representative - it probably won't be this exact stuff for sale. I just had these photos and didn't want to take new ones.) :D Fond du Lac area friends - if you're interested in this sale, leave a comment either here or on the FB page and I'll give you the deets!
