Most of the pieces in this old oak-front cabinet used to belong to my grandmother. There are a few things that are mine such as a cut glass bowl that I bought at an estate sale.
These are pieces that I rarely ever use and I'm beginning to think that all I'm doing is baby-sitting them. Am I losing my sense of nostalgia? Maybe. All I know is that I'm not quite as fond of these things as I once was and am thinking it's time to pass them along
or sell them.
I would keep a few pieces such as the mustache cups and the old soap dish. When both my children are here next, I will ask them if they want any of the pieces. The bottom half of the cabinet is also full.
The next step is trying to figure out how to price the pieces and how/where to sell them. I haven't yet delved into Etsy or eBay to try to learn about selling, so if anyone has a good site for me to learn or tips to share, I'd welcome advice.
Now, speaking of old...
I have a quiz that my daughter shared from FB that I thought was fun. It's called Take the "OLDER THAN DIRT" Quiz.
