Master’s ‘helping hand’

By Gil Elvgren

Master asked for help with Spring Cleaning.
Now is the time to do it.
Anyone else deep cleaning during this ‘pause’?
How about in the nude?

No looking back~

dievca is an “eBayer” – she buys and sells.  But with her Parents taking more of her time, dievca’s eBay listing practices have diminished. The “to be sold” items were piling up.

It took dievca more than two years to wrap her head around the idea of calling in an “online” consignment service to list her pile of stuff. This decision occurred immediately after selling a Hermes scarf for $350. That scarf sat on eBay for about 3+ years, 5 lowball bids, one sob story…
dievca doesn’t have the time to list items, cancel poor offers and she cannot keep the bigger items around until they sell. A silk scarf is one thing, but a leather jacket is another~

Solution?

Stepping away from being in charge of her item’s presentation and setting the listing prices was tough for dievca.  she had to mentally change her goal of getting the largest amount of money – to recycling items and clearing the closets.

It’s SPRING – time to clean.

At 9 am, a lovely lady came to dievca’s apartment and sorted through as many high-end items as dievca could find to sell.
Fendi, Missoni, Lanvin, Alaia, Moschino, Simone Rocha, Miu Miu, Sonia Rykiel, Michael Kors, Celine, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Manolo Blahnik, Repetto, Vivienne Westwood, Dries van Notan, Norma Kamali, etc.

After two hours, good conversation and coffee – 42 items left dievca’s apartment to be sold.
Cross fingers on the pricing…

Here’s the remnants:

dievca decided she is not going be a voyeur and watch what the items sell for ~ its too much. Whatever $ she gets, she gets.

The “leftover” pile has become one small bag of items to be listed on eBay – a much more manageable amount. Already a bag of mid-tier items was sold at Buffalo Exchange. There are pieces set aside for friends and the rest will be donated to Goodwill/ Housing Works.

All told, dievca got rid of about 90+ items.

And she’s not looking back!
