"Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes things visible in the first place."

This is what went out yesterday. Believe me when I say that this is just a scratching of the surface of what has already gone out and what will go out in the future. Just a day, a single day...arghhh. There are two actual groups in my purges at the moment (this does not include any clothing or fabrics or yarns, books, etc.): new or newer or non-collectibles, and collectibles/antiques. The newer/non-collectibles go in the give-away or swap meet pile in the garage. The collectibles/antiques get wrapped and put into boxes to be sold at some point. Which presents its own issues...how the hell do I get rid of it all...? I don't really want to pay for a booth in an antique shop, nor do I want to get all involved in eBay, Craigslist, or the like. I could have a yard sale (which I do intend to do at my house in NY for those things there that I'm purging.) But here in El Cajon, out here in the boonies, a garage or yard sale is not a great solution. We don't live in a neighborhood, a sale of this kind would not attract anyone way out here. I'm just not sure what to do. Consignment? I may just get so sick of the whole thing that I will donate it all and some lucky thrift store will get a hell of a bonanza one of these days. Cuz there is a LOT of nice stuff in the things I'm getting rid of. A lot. I just don't want it any more. I'm done.
