It's that time again

One vintage baby bed.
One, two, three vintage carrom boards.
One, two, three, four, five, six dolls.
One, two, three........................and so it begins.

Inventory time.
Dreaded inventory time.

35 pip berry rings.
26 teddy bears.
74 barn star ornaments.

And so on.
I'm guessing at the above numbers, but the real count is starting.

This year, as I count inventory, I'm also taking lots of things off the floor. The general rule of thumb is: if it's been on the floor for over a year, it's history. All these things are being taken upstairs, where we'll have a huge clearance sale this spring. This includes both crafts AND antiques.

So.......if there is something here you've been thinking about buying for a long time, you might want to get it in the next few days.

True, you might save money if you wait - that certain chair or whatever might end up in the clearance sale, where you could get it at a very low price. But........it might sell before you can get to it that day, and I'd hate to see you kicking yourself because you missed out.

Taking the old stuff off the floor will leave lots of holes. Holes that will get filled with new crafts and antiques. Gotta love that. But first........one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.............
