One of the fund raising ideas for the village hall is an indoor table top sale.
They always seem popular, especially in these days of austerity .
So today I am addressing the wasteland which is the area under my bed.
Boxes and bin liners full of shit.
A few years ago, I cleared most of the decks at the cottage but lots of stuff was squirrelled away under the bed and out of sight.
Now that shite may make me a bit of money
So today is the day.
I’ve been ruthless
40% boxed ready for the sale, 5 % recycled, 5% kept 50% chucked
The chucked items are thrown into the front garden
Good on you. Love a good clean out.ReplyDelete
Me too..I read the paper on the loo most daysDelete
I like the old term for fluff under the bed: 'slut's wool'.ReplyDelete
Then why have a pillowcase full ???Delete
You've got me there.Delete
Early spring cleaning! Very satisfying, especially when being ruthless. Where do you get the energy from after partying with Abba?ReplyDelete
I haven’t , I’m buggered now, just got home after TCA sub committee meetingDelete
Marie Kondo would be proud of you.ReplyDelete
I’ll take that , but I’m sure Ursula will find some deep seated depression activity in my de clutteringDelete
Those sales are fun, I hope you take more than you bring home.ReplyDelete
I want to make enough to pay my sister her gardening money for the summerDelete
It must be great fun seeing things pitched from the window into the yard!!!! Have a great windfall at the jumble.ReplyDelete
And here's the link to Jon's ABBA experience
Thank you Maddie …..he loved it more than I did , and I adored itDelete
Interesting photo, feeling a little like a voyeur looking at your things but looking anyway! Have a favor to ask, would you post a picture of the quilt shown on the footboard please? I'm a quilter and am interested in what the pattern is, Dresden Plate maybe? Can't quite tell. Anyway, hope the sale goes well. -a friend from Kentucky in the U.S.ReplyDelete
I look forward to seeing the whole quilt, too! It doesn't look like a full circle as a Dresden Plate would have but it's bought to be a variation of one. Iy it is lovely!Delete
Please make that 'it's 'bound to be a variation of one. It is lovely!'Delete
Good luck at the rummage sale! Feels good to clear out old stuff, doesn't it!ReplyDelete
It did when I cleared out the whole bedroom when I painted it blue. Now I realised I had only done half a job…Delete
Pitching out things is cathartic. I always feel very renewed after a good hoe out. Hope you make enough to treat yourself to another special event.ReplyDelete
I’m surprised Tom or Mavis missed your commentDelete
I always feel very renewed after a good hoe”
I like decluttering. I couldn't help but notice your beautiful quilt either. Very nice.ReplyDelete
It was designed by a bloggerDelete
Regarding table top sales here - at the Church sometimes not only are the items sold for charity but tables themselves at £10 for people to sell their various items crafts etc x 🛏ReplyDelete
Storing excrement in bin bags? I could have sworn you had a nice new flush toilet fitted when you had your bathroom done.ReplyDelete
pooo eee x 💩 🚽 👜Delete
Table top sales in village halls are brilliant, Alan loves doing them as there are nearly always bacon butties and numerous cups of tea on offer. I just drink the coffee and take the money.ReplyDelete
Well done on the sorting, I would love to have been sat on the field gate watching all the chucked items landing in the garden.
Terry from the old flower show committee looked perplexed when a cushion and two bin bags of old clothes burst on the lawnDelete
My advice to you - if you actually go to the sale keep your hands in your pockets and don't buy anything to replace what you have just got rid of.ReplyDelete
I should be busy on my stallDelete
Well done, but what shall you find on the table tops that needs to come home with you?ReplyDelete
Also, now there is room for the dogs and Albert to be under the bed. A mixed blessing, that.
Roger pushes himself under the car seats regularlyDelete
One man's trash is another man's treasure. Just don't return with too many new treasures to replace the old trash! xxReplyDelete
I will tryDelete
A good clear-out feels great. Gently used items should sell well. I recently went through 2 guest room closets and found things I'd long forgotten All was donated and I took a tax write-off.ReplyDelete
There are some nice pieces that I’m going to sell. An 18th corner cabinet taken from a farmhouse, an Edwardian dressing mirror, etcDelete
I’m due for a round of under-the-bed-bin-review. And dust bunnies. I think I can make another cat.ReplyDelete
You could stuff an average sized hippo with what I collectedDelete

The rubbish I threw in the garden and then binnedDelete
The garage sale will be in the village hall
Dunno why you follow John Lizzie you gripe about inane things; quite scathingly I might add!Delete
Jo in Auckland
I am certainly not scathing about America and Americans debby.Delete
Can you give me examples of where I have been ?
I am an American and I’ve never ever felt you’ve said anything dismissive of Americans.Delete
I misspoke, sorry.Delete
Several crusty wank rags going cheap xReplyDelete
Oh Mavis that's dire even coming from you.Delete
That spellchecker thingy! - several stray bank notes - I do believe - How lucky x 🛌💷💶💵Delete
God help us…I walk away from the blog for a few minutes and anarchy reignsDelete

I love Jumble Sales, but they seem to have disappeared. We used to have a nearby weekly Boot Sale, but it has been moved way out of town to The Marina. I feel deprived.ReplyDelete
A table top sale is always better for me than an outdoor car boot in a field or ebay. Hope you make the gardening money and have fun.ReplyDelete
