I am still trying to figure out what to bring and what not to bring. Each day that goes by, the closer to the inevitable gigantic move back to Sweden.
I’ve learned that it’s easier to sell storage items rather then other general things. Some that I actually quite frankly find pretty awesome! Me and my husband have been restoring an antique Uncle Scrooge statue (Scrooge Mcduck). It is almost finished and now comes the hard part of finding a buyer.
I’ve seen it for sale on ebay for $600+ but I doubt I’ll find a seller that would pay that much. I am hoping to gain at least half of that.
It honestly hurt to sell it but what can you do right? Would cost me that amount to just ship the darned thing.
Here it is mid restoration. We bought it with a snapped neck, it is starting to look amazing already. I still have to finish the paint and glue on the glasses, after that it will be in top notch shape.
You know, it’s sad that people throw away broken things when they can be fixed and used for years to come. we do live in a throw away society. I am just as guilty of being wasteful as the next person. I will actually start to get better with that. There is only so much resources on this world before we run low and are stuck with a pile of junk.
Which reminds me, since I have so many cat things I will be leaving behind, I’ve decided to donate all my cats large stuff to a close by independent cat rescue group. When I their door, the expression was priceless. The person who opened the door thought that I was going to dump off my cats. I wouldn’t do that, I love my cats. I saw a little kitten walking up to me, a turtle patched little thing! I picked her up and just gave my husband the puppy dog eyes. Of course he said no. We will already be importing two cats, we cannot afford to import another one. Still, I would love to have a little kitten in the house. One that would give my big large Cheezebugher (male cat) a run for it’s money. Someone to actually exercise him.
Some of the things we will be donating.
Never buy a cat bed, darned things never sleep in them anyway.
I haven’t even found all their toys, I will let them keep their favorite. Cheeseburgers is still the little wooden key that Ana gave him when he was playing with her purse. Lol, her favorite is a little fuzzy ball that she carries around.
Other then the packing and the giving away stuff and the selling (the list goes on and on), I am exited about this week! Wizard World in Chicago on Thursday! I am so very stoked!
I’ll see you there!
