That’s 338 pieces. I talked about that here. I’m at 370.
Hopefully, I can get rid of a lot more before month’s end. By contrast to the paperwork purge going on here, the things at the antique store are just sitting, as of 2/9 I hadn’t sold a single thing this month.
I’ve signed up for the one-day flea market I’ve done in the past. Was unsure about it this year, not sure people will want to spend the money; not sure I’d have anything for sale (We have 1 small box set aside for the next flea market. In years past, whatever hadn’t sold pretty much wound up in the “flea market” category.) After a flea market, I usually donate whatever doesn’t sell. If I can’t sell it for $5 or $1 or whatever it’s not likely that I’ll sell it, period. But I’ve changed things this year. Most of the pieces I pull from the booth because they haven’t sold get donated out of the car, instead of being brought home and becoming flea market fodder. Accordingly, I have a lot less merchandise.
Didn’t find a lot more merchandise in the attic. Whatever is there is hidden right now by the unorganized stuff. One category I noticed that I almost certainly will take is sf digest magazines. I have lots. There was a guy for a while selling at the flea market who thought they were valuable, really valuable. Funny. I bought a book from him he thought wasn’t worth much and sold it for $400! [Ignorance is bliss I guess.]
Anyway, I do have boxes of magazines I can sell. I’ll have to start pulling them together in one place. Some are in the attic, some in the kitchen, and there’s a bunch in the storage too. I also have a chunk of USDA annuals. I bought a store’s inventory of these when they went out of business. I only need 1 copy of each year. Most of them don’t have color plates or anything really interesting, so they’re not worth much, mostly. There’s the bookcase they’re on in the storage, and that can be sold as well.
Also in the dump bin and not counted otherwise, 2 skeins of yarn. Forgot about that!
