As you can see from my previous post, I’ve put a few things on Craigslist and I’ve been pretty successful. Recently, I’ve sold the last of the Legos and feel pretty smug about it. Okay, yes, I probably would’ve made five times as much if I’d held out with supply and demand — those lego people sure were a hot entity — but oh well – they’re gone! Also, my yard looks twice as big without that huge swing set.
Since I had such a success on Craigslist, several people have asked me to post items for them. I’ve added in some video games and books so far (and sold some already). Last weekend, I was asked to sell fine bone china. Now, this opened up a whole new world to me – antiques. The world of antiques is proving to be quite exciting. I didn’t know there was so much history behind these beautiful works of art. Right now, I haven’t sorted through the two TV box size boxes, but I’m salivating here — they’re colorful and beautiful pieces and I can’t wait to see what I uncover. Heck, I didn’t know I was into this stuff.
In between work, family, nanowrimo, freelance writing, blog updates, editing and everything else, I plan to educate myself in the fine art of fine china and antiques. I welcome any advice from antique lovers or connoisseurs — I admit, this is all new to me and I’m just a bit intimidated. But, of course, it’s hard to turn down a challenge. Onward to to the world of antiques!!
