Nearly two years ago, my husband and I purchased a neighbors home after she passed away. Our neighbor had lived in this home with her husband for 50 years and in that 50 years she had never thrown anything away. She was very sentimental and kept absolutely everything. Her husband passed away the year before she did. Her two boys had no children and lived out of state and were not interested in anything from the house and so they sold us the house as it sat, full of all her and her family's treasures. We had been remodeling our century old home for the last year and a half and were just about finished when we purchased the home. This home was full from the basement, first and second floors to the floored attic. There was literally just a path through every room. We packed everything away and put the house up for sale after fixing it up. Now that we are finished with that, I will be listing the treasures we found there along with all of our treasures. The experience of seeing my neighbors house so full because she collected and treasured everything for all her life made me realize that my house could someday look the same if I just keep collecting as I have and if I don't let anything go. It was so sad that no one in her family wanted her things. It made me wonder what our family would do with all of what we treasure. So, my husband and I are slowly and reluctantly parting with our favorite treasures and our newly acquired ones. We already had our basement and a storage building full when we acquired the new house and now we have a second building full from that. Over the next few months, I will be listing daily so be sure to check back often. I will be listing wonderful vintage and antique items from my collection,beautiful silver and vintage toys and almost anything you can imagine. I am sure you will find something you love also.
