The 'simply-chateau brocante sale' .........
I am still working my way through numerous boxes and bags full of 'scrummies' that I need to sort out for the brocante sale. They had been tucked away either because I thought they were too small to list on my Ebay site or I was quite precious about parting with them at the time!!!
And so it is quite a slow process sorting through things, putting them in different piles and then getting distracted by something I spot in another box and go sorting through that instead! I get engrossed in unpacking one box, pick out a few things then skip to another box; by the end of the day I have achieved nothing except being surrounded by several big stacks of goodies! I then remember where a certain item came from and go searching for something else I remember which came with it! I am usually very get up and go but for some reason I am a bit "fluffy" with it all at the moment!! I seem to be busy doing nothing!
I have decided that rather than overwhelm myself with huge piles I am going to deal with each item as I unpack it, photograph it immediately, list it in the sale and then go for the next item in the box irrespective of what is lurking underneath it! Does that make sense?
I never realised that I had hoarded so much...I really didn`t! But it is nice to look back at each piece; |I can usually remember exactly where a particular item came from. I suppose I am just being a bit indulgent!
I am going to tackle the ribbons and textiles today, photograph immediately and then stack ready for the brocante day.
THE SIMPLY CHATEAU BROCANTE SALE IS ON WEDNESDAY 14th SEPTEMBER.
