See what I mean? I mean. And then there’s the baronial ice bucket, the red chinoiserie dragon panels, can’t forget about those Palm Beachy paint by number numbers I found last week, the glam glam brass light fixture. How about the burlwood console with the fantastic hardware? The list goes on and on. In my manic-induced frenzy the other day, I felt a little like Mary at Peter Dunham's store - I absolutely needed two of everything. I've since come out of the manic ether but still can't get these things out of my head.

Phone pics are bad, I know, but trust that these things are faboosh. In order to make some of these things mine, I must sell some stuff. I have too much stuff. Hoarder 2.0 much stuff. Just like Mary. Need to part with some things. Here’s where I need your help. Should do I the Craigslist thing? Should I do a garage sale? Should I offer up items here? I can’t really ship an armoire or a sideboard but local folks could arrange pick up. I have some nice things – both antiques and newer items. So I feel like I should share the love.
What say you? I would love to hear what you guys think. Any of you have any luck with any of these avenues? Gonna be honest – I think Craigs is creepstar. Sure, people claim to have found great things via Craigs but between you and me, urban legends. Every one.
But I need a fix for my hoarding habit. Need to find a way to sell some things so that I can get more things. Let me qualify that statement by saying that I am moving in a different direction with Chez V so I am not just hoarding to hoard, mostly. Like Mary says, if only I could somehow manage to appear to have loads of money, I would be considered eccentric rather than the reality of being poor-ish and called insane hoarder lady.
Happy hoarding, folks!
kisses, mrs. V
