So, yesterday I listed my sofa, 2 wing chairs, 3 tables, 3 lamps, mirror, a decorative hourglass and my Lowrey organ on eBay. Within 30 minutes I had bids on the chairs, 2 tables, 2 lamps, the mirror and the hourglass. Even with the bid, I still see people saving the items to their "watch list". Maybe that means I will get more than my starting bid amount as it gets closer to the end of the auction. But, since my goal is to empty out the room as quickly as possible...I priced these things to sell!
I have had 32 people view my Lowrey listing and one person has placed it on their watch list. Back in 1974 when my parents bought me the organ, it cost $8000.00...an astronomical price! But I had a gift and they were determined to do everything they could to help me reach my potential. For the past 10 years or so it is impossible to buy replacement parts, so even if someone just purchased it to cannibalize it for parts...$25.00 is a steal! I think I may be quite emotional when "my baby" leaves this house, but I haven't been able to play it in years...so making room for a hobby that I still CAN do makes a whole lot more sense.
Tomorrow J and his girlfriend will begin moving things around so that at least a few items can be brought down from my sewing room. We know it is going to take several days of lifting and moving furniture...but it will be a start!
This morning I have purged through my sewing catalog drawer and have purged through one bin of fabric. There is a LOT more to do, but slow and steady will have to be my pace.
