Yard Sale

I am getting organized and prepared for a yard sale next weekend! I am letting go of so much stuff that I just thought I had to have!! LOL I would see something on someone's blog and OMG I NEED THAT and the hunt was on to find one!! Well, my craft room, two closets, too many bins to really confess to, and that is just plain dumb!!! If I am not displaying it now, or it won't be displayed during a holiday then it is going. I have an album on face book here  https://www.facebook.com/lynn.spencer.7731/media_set?set=a.10152278461566716.1073741836.680151715&type=3

It has a bunch of pictures of stuff that will be sold hopefully. I still need to get the vintage Christmas cards, vintage Valentine cards, Vintage Birthday, Vintage Anniversary, Vintage baby shower and wedding shower cards photographed. I have my cards stored in those 12x12 paper stores from AC Moore and I have 3 that are very full!! I bet I have almost 200 or more vintage valentines. The anniversary cards are a man and wife's collection of anniversary cards to each other thorough the years and from friends and family. I feel guilty when I get them out and read them sometime, is that crazy of me? I bought them either online or at an antique store so I was not a family member that didn't keep them. oh well, back to the good stuff. I have one of those plastic containers full of cupcake picks, those vintage birthday candle holders, vintage cake decorations, those ballerina cup cake toppers, and those clown heads for cupcakes. That box is saying please someone buy me and use me to make something pretty with!! LOL Also, all of my vintage children's book are going up for sale. If you are interested in the books let me know and I will get the list of titles and dates to you.
If you know anyone that likes or collects bells I have a whole plastic container full of those too.  I also have a lot of Vera Bradley pocket books, wallets, accessories. If anyone likes Vera Bradley and you want  to see what we have leave me a comment or email me a pls0818@aol.com and I will send you the pics.

Now for some advice PLEAS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On selling vintage greeting cards and vintage Valentine cards, which is the best way to sell them? Single cards, 1/2 dozen. dozen. or how? I don't want to cheat anyone but I want to get back at least what I paid for them you know what I mean?

The 12z12 box that is full of a variety of different cupcake toppers, cake decorations, birthday candle holders, and stuff like that, should I sell it all at one time or should I make baggies of the same items together and sell them that way? Quick Question????? I bought a mixed lot of stuff off of ebay a few years back and it had a bunch of silver and gold toned wishbones!!! I had never seen wishbones like these and was wondering if anyone else had seen  them before and if so what did they use them for? I am guessing as table decorations or something like that. There is a bunch of vintage baby shower cake decorations in that box of stuff.

I have also decided to part with my vintage doll playpen, vintage baby scales, vintage tins, vintage canister sets, vintage dishes, vintage toy dishes, vintage crochet pot holders, and maybe even the kitchen sink. LOL If you are interested in something please let me know and I will take pics and sent them to you to look at. I know if one ob my blog friends buy it, it will have a good home.
Well, it is 3 am and I am finally getting sleepy. Last week and especially this past weekend really kicked my rear end!! I told my hubby if I knew that going to find out what was wrong with my right leg and why my left knee hurt so bad was going to lead to finding out all of the other things that are wrong with me, I would have just stayed home. I had not had a migraine for over 18 years and I think it started on the 5th of July and lasted till the 11th!!! I was miserable and then when I think ok no more headache, I get sick on my stomach so I either picked up a stomach bug somewhere or my daughter says it is my body detoxing from not eating sugar since the 26 of June. I have lost 16 lbs so far but still have a bunch to lose! I put back on all I lost last year and then some!!!! Hubby eats his sweets in front of me and I tell him that it is just plain hurtful when he does that LOL But, really it isn't I am proud that I have had the will power not to eat them but Dana says I can have some sugars and sweets, she is trying to find me a class at the hospital she works at that teaches those types of classes. I do not want to have diabetes so I can give sweets up for that.

okay, asking for prayers for my health, My Daughter,  a sweet young lady that is having a hard time right now, My Mother, My Mother in law, our country, my online blogging pal Angie in Ohio, and that we sell everything at our yard sale next weekend. Also, if you have ever seen something in the photos on my blog of my craft room, kitchen, well any photo that you thought wow, I wish I had one of them, just ask me, it might just be one of those items that I am no longer using or displaying!

Good Night!
