I've got a yard sale hangover today. Full weekend, full on. It's like putting your private life out on your lawn to be judged by those who are worthy and I'm not going to lie, a few who are not so much.
I actually refused money from some people because their counter offer was well deemed to be unworthy.
I'm all for barter but don't insult me. Ya know?
The good news - we made a good return on investment AND more importantly we unloaded stuff to free up space. That was entirely satisfying when we packed up the leftovers/passed overs. In some instances, we got money for things I can't believe people gave us money for - TRULY. Hell, people even offered to pay for stuff out of your donate pile. Incredible. Amazed though that the Eames chairs that we priced to GIVE away are still in our possession. Some people don't get value. Same goes for the pair of silk embroidered drapery panels that are 108" long that we still own. I mean REALLY people? BARGOON.
Crazy week that I thought I'd designed to be quiet has exploded on me before 10am this morning. I'm giving a talk this week on How to Grow Your Business Outside of your Area Code this week at SOFA- out at the International Centre by the airport. If you are a designer or in the trade and would like to come you can register HERE and read more about it as well!!! I'm really looking forward to meeting some of the people I tweet with regularly!!! Make sure to introduce yourself AND give me your twitter handle. It's amazing how you only know people by their online personas!!! Names aren't my strength - so consider yourselves warned!!!
One month today and I will be with my best friend in Italy. I can't even begin to put into words how excited I am by this.
One week today we begin installing #Boston. EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
