giving it away...for free.


Lots of friends have asked specifically what I’m doing with this item or that now that I’m moving to the Middle East--would I be willing to sell it? It got my wheels spinning. You guys have seen photos of my apartment. I have tons of stuff. Things I love and have spent time curating--things that others kindly gifted to me--but things that can't exactly come with me to Kuwait. And yet, because I'm ridiculously attached these possessions, I can't stand shoving this stuff into storage. Thinking of it getting dusty just makes me sad.

I can part with my things, I realized, if I know they're going somewhere they'll be enjoyed.
 
So, I'm inviting you over to raid my home. For free.
 
My friends, family and blog readers...anyone who happens to be in the Eau Claire, Wisconsin area on Saturday, May 19th from 6:00pm-8:00pm...needs to be at my home, taking my things. Please stop by, peruse my stuff and take what you’d like...a no-price-tag-situation here!
 
Here's what I've got:

Home décor items
Tons of clothes
Jewelry
Kitchenware
Furniture (sofa, chairs, rugs, lamps, tables, etc.)
Various items like art easels, a microwave, a piano keyboard
 
If you're interested in coming, drop me an email at hello@rinserepeatblog.com! Early next week, I'll send out details (a photo preview, my address + directions and a photo of my home to make sure you get to the right place!).  Please, please do come, I would LOVE to see you leave with an armload! I promise to have treats and grown-up drinks for you to enjoy while you raid. :)
 
Really, your presence will be the hugest favor...I'm purging most everything I own, save some clothes, furniture pieces and sentimental items...I am not looking forward to seven donation trips to Goodwill. :)
 
-----------------------

Just to address any questions: 

Really for free? Yes, seriously! I don't want your filthy money. ;) I'll have a guilt jar for people who can't handle taking stuff. But I'm not expecting a dollar!

Can I come early? I'm so sorry, but I don't think I'll be available! You're certainly welcome to drop by a bit early on Saturday evening, but from now until Saturday evening I plan to be in the throws of moving or spending time with my family. :)

Can you mail things to me? We'll see! Because I'm living in a sea of boxes + mailing things to Kuwait, at this moment I don't have time to box up other items for shipping. However, if I find myself with extra time and boxes in the week following, I'll post about any worthwhile leftovers. :)

  17. I am Doris used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes…i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (priests meruja); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
    for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn’t mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I’m sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him as nativedoctor101@live.com He travel sometimes.love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,it’s all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
    more.
