The outcome of several years of Hoarding Woes has been working toward sales to move the stuff off the property. Today was a ‘big’ ‘awesome’ success. I nice chunk of cash was made, but that already had to go to cover previous costs. More significant was the volume of low priced goods heading to the cars.
As usual what you think people should like (the item or the price) doesn’t always play out. But, finally, today a great variety of goods were purchased. After the sale, hours were spent restocking the shelves and pricing the goods.
So far, most of the neighbors seem quite copacetic with the volume of cars and foot traffic. They visit often and bring friends. It almost seems like a tour event….’this is where that lady lived I was telling you about.’ ‘Oh, I remember the driveway and the tarps…yes’.
‘Interesting, there are some people that buy a lot and dare I say it, seem akin to a hoarder. Can I recognize them on sight? Not sure. Just a purpose about their visit. Not too much socializing. Buy a lot of odd ball things and in lots of something else.
One day down and a good day…all things considered.
