So I thought with all the junque I have around here, I must have something that's worth "two in the bush." I have some German ceramic dogs, lovely old glass vases, an antique sugar bowl (that belonged to my grandmother),
|I can still remember seeing this on my grandmother's table.|
|I love this set. My grandmother had TONS of salt and pepper shakers in her house.|
|Not in very good shape - it was played a LOT!|
And so I have been prowling E-Bay and other online sources to see what I could find. You know those stories you hear about someone picking up a priceless painting at a garage sale for $10? Well, it ain't happen' here!! Seems like every baby boomer in America has the exact same items I do and they are worth about 99¢ each! Well, okay, some might actually be worth a couple of dollars but that's about as good as it gets. I suppose I could have a garage sale and try to find someone who is actually interested in these items, but I don't think it would be worth the work involved. I think the best bet is to just tell my children these items are very special to me and I want them to have them. Do you think they'll swallow that?
Alas, I think my junque is just plain junk and I am going to have to deal with it. Where does old clutter go to die?
