Aside from the ironing the driveway thing I talked about in the last post….
Two days ago I removed all the magazines which filled the bottom drawer of the filing cabinet. Got rid of the immediately obvious culls: dupes and things I’ll never use. I organized them in the bedroom where I can go through them as I can to pull wanted info out or pitch them, whatever. (They’re also neatly stacked.)
(This photo IS mine. It’s the storage unit, or one of them anyway in 2013, so 6 years ago now. I have a LOT fewer boxes these days!)
Yesterday I worked on the storage move and brought home 6 boxes of “go through these” books. I did. The first box was romances. A slug of them are waiting to go to the dump’s swap shop, some are in a spring flea market box. A box of them will be given to a friend who’s a romance writer to take to a meeting. A few (6?) were valuable.
Earlier this week I called one of my previous antique co-ops about renting a glass case. I don’t have a place to sell really good books when I leave the current shop 2/15.
Today? Today I finished the file box of romances and went through all of an egg box (50-70 books) of mysteries/thrillers/spy novels. They also got sorted: swap shop, too good to give away, and flea market books.
Two of the boxes in the car are labeled that they’re DH’s books from an earlier office clean out. Guess? Many of them will be old computer books and will go to the dump, probably into the paper recycling. There’s one more box that I remember in the car. It has sf magazines in it, at least on top. If it has complete year lots? Cool, it’s booth or flea market. I have no reason to keep an odd issue here or there, but have 2 years of this magazine missing 1 issue each. . . maybe I can fill those holes?
There are 3 wire crates, 2 typing tables and other items slated to be put into the antique store for the last month I’ll be there. (I’m having a “container” sale.) Anything which doesn’t sell is either going to auction, will be donated, or taken to the flea market in the spring.
Oh yeah. I also have a few things in the car to consign.
So, see? I’ve been busy, but not talking about it much!
The 2 boxes marked for DH were gone through Friday eve. The outs will be researched, but many of them will find their way to the dumps swap shop no doubt. That’s 2 more boxes outta here!
