I am continuing to make use of my dear daughter. She offered to sell some things on Ebay for me. I vowed many years ago that I would never have another yard sale or sell on Ebay. So far, I have kept my vows.
However, I do have some things cluttering up my space that I can't quite bring myself to get rid of. Put that in the past tense.
Thanks to Miss Em, I am now--or soon to be--the proud UN-OWNER of a pair of Filson garments (too big, too heavy for my guys) and some cowboy boots. And a giant puffy coat in an unfortunate shade of magenta. And a few other things.
Of course I made some rookie-mistakes. One, I priced too low, so had several items whoosh away on a too low BUY IT NOW. Second, not knowing how much shipping had gone up over the years, I offered FREE SHIPPING.
I consider my selling midway between making some money and getting ready to declutter for retirement. If I look at things that way, I have been successful.
Also the two Filson jackets and the big down coat took up a lot of space. Getting bulky items gone is a good thing.
P.S. We did not unload another space hog: a wedding dress (not mine! I got married in a green dress from a yard sale). More on the fate of that bulky item later.
We said bye-bye to this. The buyer got a good deal too.
