Over the years our tastes have adapted or we've moved and don't have room for certain stuff, so we have sold stuff on and off for years. However over the last year or so we've realised we just have too much stuff! Of course we wouldn't have if we didn't continue to buy more stuff but we do, and we just have to admit to it. I've talked about hoarding before and I know many people who love old stuff do hoard to a degree. We're pretty strict on ourselves now, plus we're pretty skint at the moment, so that always helps!!
However there are always things we struggle to part with aren't there? This post was prompted by a skirt that I just put up on ebay today, I kept looking at it and not wanting to sell, but really it hasn't fit me for years and years, and yes it's very cute but it's just got to go. Here is it!
And here's a close up!
How fabulous is that print? I honestly don't know why I like it quite as much as I do, except I do like the colour combo and print.
It's tough parting with stuff but a lesson to younger vintage collectors if you don't sell or swap around you'll end up like we have, honestly we can't even remember owning some of the stuff we have! We are very slowly getting rid of lots of it. We won't ever stop buying but we're learning we have to sell now as well.
The other advantage of going through everything is you find things you'd completely forgotten about that you fall in love with all over again!
oh and if you're interested, but that's not the reason for this post, my ebay id is redpeters click here to see what's up there! There's some really weird stuff too which I have no idea where it came from ha ha!
