To get an old electronic organ away. Was told by others that was cheap.

Forget about all the collectables I was told would increase in time. Antiques i love, others not so much. So I just purged, gave away but how sweet the lightened load is.

3. Handmade needlework items like embroidered linens,

crocheted and knitted things, quilts. Also handmade lace, decorative table linens, and delicately worked ladies hankies, are unwanted. The time to master the skills of needlework, the beauty and craftsmanship is unappreciated. We're probably at the point where many of these skills will be gone and lost forever.

6. Big Box TV's

Have a BIG Sony that works perfectly, sounds great (several speakers underneath the screen) but I CAN NOT get rid of the thing - even a church won't take it for their social room!

10. I gave them away while I still could!

On another note my fist slimline 42 inch cost $1200, my new Smart 48 inch cost $369.

And Audiologists are still trying to convince old peope that 2 tiny hearing aids are worth $6000.

Spare me, wait until the new law takes effect next year. You will see expensive offices shutting down the same way box stores are closing.

17. I don't touch Stangl, Hummels, stuff like old fireplace bellows. I've got some beautiful

pieces of cobalt Wedgwood Jasperware growing roots in the booth along with a couple of Sawyer prints. Sawyer used to be hot around here. I can still do okay with baseball cards as long as I buy them for nothing and sell them really cheap. No one really cares much about McCoy anymore. Just sold something that had been on the shelf for a couple of years. Funky, weird stuff sells. I've got some frequent buyers of antique Chinese stuff. I'm having trouble moving bookends, but like a fool I keep buying them.
