Happy New Year! I made it to NYC for NYE, which let me tell you... is insanity. Did you know you actually have to pay to be in Times Square? A few hundred dollars per person. Then they block off the streets and street corners. We had a great spot in a park, of which we got kicked out at 8 PM because there was a private party. My overall reaction is that it's kind of like Black Friday on steroids... A lot of waiting in the dark and cold... I did enjoy the city; it was my first time ever being there. I will go back, but not on NYE!
Anyway, back to the thrifting front...
I'm trying to get my "eBay room" cleaned and organized. That is what I have on the agenda for these last few days of winter break. It had been looking much like a Hoarders episode.
We went to visit my dad the weekend before Christmas. Every trip to my dad's results in his giving us lots of random oddities to sell on eBay. It's sort of annoying, because it's mostly older things that are not my area of expertise, and they sit for a long time because I don't feel like researching them. But then my dad bugs me every time I speak to him about what I've sold, so I'm trying to get better at listing the items he gives me. Plus, it's free money because he doesn't want anything back. Well this time, he gave me several pairs of underwear. He bought them all but then realized it was the wrong size or fit. Add this one to your BOLO list, friends:
