Moved it... sorta!
This place is a mess... take a look!
Majority of that has no place to go, so I think. Nuts, eh? Luckily, ghetto as they are, lockers in this place are plentiful & free!
If I have one piece of advice for my fellow collectors, it's this never move! My tastes have changed gradually & I have held on to everything. Can you believe I had 3 packs of used Mr. Sketch scented markers that didn't even work? A calligraphy set from the early 1990s that I bought in 2006 that had dried out completely? I could go on.. Also, never throw anything out or donate before looking on eBay! I was gonna donate a polyester "mod" "retro" shirt I bought 14 years ago before it was trendy for $8, $30 on eBay. $25 for my pillow person, too!
We had a wonderful welcoming to the building, BTW. My BF wasn't thinking (maybe it was the breakdown he had not in my presence about how much stuff I have) & placed a black Brinks box with very sensitive information & our birth certificates with our stuff & someone lifted it. The woman is taking her sweet ass time checking the cameras (definitely will confront whoever stole it). Contacted cops, can't do anything. I had old Canadian $1 bills in the case & posted some on my blog in the past & the serial #s are visible, so I will be going to pawn shops (or calling them) to find out if they had a handful of bills pawned (about $50 in bills). So.. I would assume the cops could then do something as the person would be stealing the box, pawning the stolen stuff. I have proof the bills were once mine & proof that they stole the box. Maybe that's just wishful thinking.
I hope his or my identity doesn't get stolen. Only reason we moved here ($1179 a month) was so we could pay off debt & get approved for a mortgage sooner than later! Would suck to find out we already own a house & don't even know it!
On the Pyrex front, aside from a few exciting discoveries when I was moving, my sister picked up this 024 Horizon Blue for me off Kijiji. I won't have my hands on it for a few months. I was set to go down on Fathers Day weekend, but she is moving the weekend after, so she's too busy. I had heard this is a rarity.
