The email explains the unplanned move because people knocked on their door and offered them an insane amount of money for their already insanely expensive house with 3 acres that backs up to a park. This really happens! That is so "movie," you know? Good thing they happened to be home!
She then gave a sampling of what is available-100s of cds, coolers, art, books, planters, plant stands, holiday decoration, bike rack, housewares, laundry baskets, etc. She had me at "planters" and i couldn't wait to get outta the office. She had it set up with business hours, and was having one person at a time come through, so my 2:00 showing yielded me:
1 insanely large cooler
1 igloo cooler
2 3 foot plastic window boxes
2 terra cotta large bowl planters
2 plastic bowl planters
1,000 places to see before you die! I have always wanted this book, and now it was free. Is it sad i have already gone thru and checked off where i have been? And starred my favorites? I don't think so! More frames. Oy. Did i ever mention my lack of closet space here?? The official inspector ispecting any new arrival.
Completely full spray paint? Yes, please. There was another one of the rust, but i left it for someone else. What am i even going to spray rust colored? My brain goes to mush when confronted with a multitude of things to choose from or a really good deal. It's on some sort of delayed response, and i panic, thinking i need things when i don't.
This is the perfectly colored accessory for the new bedroom direction! Double woot! That circus-like other vase will be getting spray painted.
My coworker who went with me made out even better since she needed more things. She got a canvas laundry hamper, a wooden dish rack, a bike carrier for the car, a bike pump, a mini stereo...i can't remember what else. Needless to say the owners of these items are extremely generous people. I'm just glad i got there when i did!
Free is for me...isn't that the saying?
