Here's the plan: guests will enjoy a turkey dinner while perusing our apartment for tagged items. They will be encouraged to make offers of what they can to help us make our move, but our pricing will be flexible. Tagged items will be noted as available to be taken on the spot or for pick up at a later date. We will still be around here for a bit longer and will need to hold onto our furniture and lamps for that while longer. There will be furniture, books, dishes, and home decor items available for the taking. Leftovers will probably find their ways to Goodwill, but we would love to see our items getting used by friends.
With all of the hype around Macklemore's Thrift Shop, the time feels right to turn our apartment into a secondhand shop. We are using Facebook to get people together because it is easy. And it will allow us to post previews of items for sale as we get ready for the event.
Life is crazy right now, planning for our move, finishing my thesis, trying to pull a new life together in a new city. Brainstorming for this event and putting together the little details really is my escape. It is so much fun to put the pieces together and create a fun night to celebrate all that is great with some of our friends. More updates are to come on getting the night together -- including my first turkey cooking adventure -- let's do this!
