One of my closest friends is organizing a yard sale for this Saturday and has invited some of her friends to participate. Seeing that as an opportunity to clean out some of the clutter in my apartment, I started to go through my closets, cabinets and cupboards. It was amazing how stuff accumulates.
Within 30 minutes, I had six pairs of jeans to sell, 10 pairs of khakis, seems I hadn’t sorted through those pants since sometime in the early 1990s. I found a pair of pants I hadn’t worn since 1994 or 95–and to think I moved that pair clear across the country! While it’s exciting at first when you find things to give away, after a while, it becomes exhausting, especially if you want to keep insist on holding onto things with sentimental (but not practical) value.
I even found an old coffee maker. Instead of getting rid of it when I replaced it, I simply moved it to a kitchen cabinet. . . . And I still have yet to dispose of my vintage microwave.
If any of you Angelenos are in need of cheap stuff, you’ll have to check us out. . .
Here are the details:
This coming Saturday May 30 from 8am-3pm as the corner of Cahuenga and Bloomfield in Toluca Lake. One block south of Moorpark. East side of Cahuenga. (In the Valley.)
