My hubby and I are thinking of taking off on an extended "road trip" in a few months, and it would behoove us to GET RID OF as much excess baggage -- and I mean that in the literal sense -- as possible before we leave.
In the past couple of weeks, I've become nearly an expert in the ins and outs of selling stuff online -- writing a description, setting a price, taking a picture. Use auction bids, or a Buy Now (fixed price), or both? Tricky, this! Shipping: Who pays, the buyer or the seller? Will the buyer come to your home to pick up his or her treasure? Payment processes are intricately spelled out, too.
So I'm combing through storage, closets, and each room for items that I can bear to part with after 20+ years. One woman attempted to (literally) sell her soul online last year -- but her posting was eventually rejected by the company. (How would she have delivered her soul to the buyer?)
Here's a song that Heather Edwards, a talented young New York singer, has written and recorded, about another item she found online.
Happy sales to you, until we meet again -- that's my way of being funny; I was thinking of the old Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers' theme song, Happy Trails to You.
