New Season

It's been a long and busy year, and truth be told, we've missed our weekend jaunts in search of cheap video games. But the weather is warming up in New England, and the yardsale bug is already nipping at our ankles. We are beginning to plan just how we're going to attack this year's season, taking into account the limitations of our area. We have some ideas and are looking forward to venturing out very soon.

Much of our time these last 6 months have been spent not only maintaining our home, but finishing our basement game room. This has been priority #1 and we still have a ways to go. The major tasks included repainting the walls, installing a plaster ceiling (including installation of lighting), installing new carpet, and building shelving. The first two activities we completed by the end of December. The carpet will be installed within a few short weeks, and we're in the process of building the shelves. We decided to build custom floating shelves from scratch in order to ensure we had exactly the right dimensions that we wanted. We have built 8 so far, which are in the final polyurethane stages. We will mount them after the carpet is installed. But we have loads more shelves to build, and it will likely be a year-long project for that alone.

In the meantime, we've kept an eye on our local Freecycle and Craigslist, but as typical with those methods, they did not yield much.

But you can't keep a true yardsaler down! We're looking forward to getting back in the game!
