Spring cleaning has begun!

Postby jwood » Fri Feb 11, 2011 11:52 am

For those who know who I am, you will realize that cleaning, for me, is very unusual. However, I have decided that I have enough clutter in my house for 2450934 families and it IS going out the door.

I have a question...does anyone have any ideas of what to do with a pair of old chinks that the old man no longer uses? They're not in very good shape, and I really don't want to hang them on the wall either. (Like I said, we're rather cluttered here already). I hate to just toss them because he made them and wore them for many years.

As you can see, there's a reason for our clutter. I'm a sentimental idiot and can rid myself of nothing, it seems.

Any creative ideas would be appreciated!

Well in my opinion the Chinks wouldn't be concidered clutter. They are an heirloom....with history of your family. If you can afford to....instead of just hanging them on the wall or on a nail somewhere. You could put them in a shadow box of somesort under glass. And then hang them on the wall.

If you just flat don't want them anymore....I'll take em, and pay the shippin LOL

But seriously....you could probably sell them on ebay...for a good price. Someone somewhere would buy them as "artwork" to hang in their home or business. I know I'd hang them up in my house somewhere.

And please don't take offense at the "if you can afford to" comment. I've been making name pictures and building frames and buying glass for them....didn't think that much about it. Until the church needed the Jesus picture reframed. Went to Hobby lobby....and priced just the frame for it.....and at 50% off framing it was still $289.

So, if ya built the frame yourself...the glass part isn't cheap...but it's not all that bad either.

A freind of mine built me some beautiful stovepipe chaps. I told him they were too nice to wear. He told me to wear them for a few years and get some age on them and he'd then take them to the NFR trade show he attends with his products and get me $1000 out of them from "collectors". Collector is a fancy word for rich folks decorating a cabin they stay in twice a year. :wink:
