My mom was a yard sale junkie for a lot of years, and she got some neat stuff. But she’s in her 80s and apart from not wanting to dust a lot of crap, she’s thinking about downsizing so her offspring don’t have to deal with the assorted miscellany.
But most of her offspring are in our 60s (youngest sis is 56) and I, personally, have been trying to get rid of my own crap accumulated over the years. My daughter has a small house - she doesn’t want my junk. But the local thrift store is getting a lot of it.
Fortunately, (I guess?) none of our stuff is particularly valuable and the sentimental value dies with the owner (looking at the framed print over my desk that I love and my daughter will probably trash…) I am pretty sure my granddaughter will want the Singer treadle sewing machine that I got from my grandmother. But beyond that, I can’t imagine anything being worth much of anything to anyone. So why did we accumulate it all??
