Whiplash – selling the house

dievca was looking out at the sunset when her brother called.  Apparently 6 people saw Mom and Dad’s house today – the first day it was listed.  Mom and Dad lived in a small town in a rural area surrounded by farms….so both dievca and her brother were surprised.

There are 7 more people on the schedule for tomorrow. Someone made a cash offer today and the realtor will ask for ‘Highest and Best’ offers by 5 pm tomorrow night to decide. dievca is not sure why the realtor isn’t asking for “Best and Final” offers because dievca’s brother wants the house sold as is and as soon as possible

That means dievca will have to hustle back and get the furniture and things sorted. It would have been nice to do it in April – not the deep of February. (Shit, why not just pile one more item on a failing dievca…🙄)

Please note that the house is not the one dievca grew up in – just the one her parents built to die in.

What the Customs Duty paid for~

  • Dries van Noten Teal Crocodile Derby’s $890 for $366 (now $240 – size 38 run more like an 8.5)
  • Dries van Noten Snakeskin Platform Sandals $885 for $646 (sold out elsewhere)
  • Laura Manoogian Brown Bow Pants $350 for $249 (Cheaper elsewhere, but the size was too large for dievca)

The Derby’s were too large, so they had to be returned. The pants will be worn in the Winter – they are a heavy knit.

The Sandals are being worn on this trip with:

  • Eddie Bauer White Jeans $80 for $55 
  • Dries van Noten Floral Tee Shirt  eBay $80

The customs re-imbursement bought:

 

  • Dries van Noten purple knit bra and briefs $220 for $114 and $280 for $109
  • Acne Studios Star Bag $250 for $98
  • Pearls Before Swine Simple Silver Ring Set $250 for $137

Now, before you pass judgement on the amount spent…remember that dievca sold items this month at Buffalo Exchange for $300, the RealReal for $1250, and has 6 items out to Decades in LA. Plus two items have sold on eBay during dievca’s travels = $200.

$1488 bought, $1750 sold + with more listed.

And if you are interested – Master thinks dievca’s machinations for reducing and rebuilding her closet are hilarious.
