This building is supposed to be my studio
but things have piled up out there.
After 40 years of owning the same house
I am moving.
I am leaving this cute little Victorian cottage
in Lawrence Kansas
("Little" is the significant word)
And having a sale on September 5th & 6th, 2014.
I am putting out lots of quilts even though the market
isn't very good. Buy high, sell low is my motto.
Several have been pictured in my books.
Then there is fabric new and old.
And then there is junk from the attic.
Here Deb is handing me stuff through the pull-down attic stairs.
A precarious trip. She and Georgann were
brave to help me.
The mover guys told me they were too fat
to go up there so I had to recruit agile women.
We also threw a lot of stuff down the ladder.
What survived I cleaned up and put some price tags on.
There will be many useful items.
I am saving the BEST of my wooden bird collection
and selling the rest.
I am selling the best of my reverse painting on glass
with a quilt theme (I actually only have one and I do not need
this in the new house which has a modern theme.) You may need
it in your house.
Here's the poster.
Friday, Saturday this week.
500 Louisiana, Lawrence, KS
And here is the new modern house before I junk it up.
I have 2 pieces of advice:
1) Never live anywhere for 40 years. Keep moving.
2) Never put anything in a storage spot when you are 30 that you cannot get out when you are 60.
