Total liquidation sale

While we're waiting (still!) for the holes for the back corner fence to dry out, we're started on another of our planned summer projects: sorting out and selling all the house parts and hardware we're not using. If we get to the basement re-do in the next year or two, we figure, it will behoove us to start clearing out all the excess stuff now.

Oh boy, this is a task. We had accumulated all manner of hardware, lighting parts, planters, heating grates, etc. that are now on the Island of Misfit Toys and need to find a home where they'll be loved. There's nothing wrong with them - they just didn't end up working stylistically, or in the case of the awsome grille covers, we didn't need them. Bummer because it was really, really hard to find mission-style grilles, and I love these!

So, if you're in the market for house parts, feel free to check out our stuff and place a bid! (Shameless plug).

Nice stuff! I bid on the hooks - I have been looking everywhere for double anchor hooks and voila! Very exciting.

Must feel so good to start to get things cleared out in the basement.

In preparation for some renovation this season I need to clear out the 800 glass canning jars that were in our basement when we moved into the house 18 years ago--and are still there.

You never know what treasures will come with an old house when you buy it.

All of that looks really good. I'm tempted by the Hubbell socket but have to measure before I bid.
