Reorganizing, Sorting, and Selling at my WorkDesk

What a glorious Wednesday!  We got some rain and cooler temps but next week, ugh, back up to 105*F.  But last weekend I spent 4 wonderful days with friends at the 1st annual Fun Stampers Journey convention.  Many "coaches" are ex-angels (from The Angel Company which closed in 2011) as I am.  Needless to say, I purchased a LOT of goodies and have to purge much from my stash to make room.  So, today, rather than see my desk since this is deskers Wednesday, I am showing you my partially reorganized book shelf of goodies and a huge box of purged (and now not so loved) stamp sets.  This post is part of a large blog tour of desks brought together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  I did post last week but didn't link up since I felt kinda guilty for not being able to be online for a few days.  But now...

This shows the top 3 of 5 shelves where I keep my stamps.  There is another shelf of stamps below the bottom one shown here .  I still need to purge but just can't bring myself to get rid of any more at this time.  I need another box to hold more envelopes of stamps and dies.  I will be purging some paper soon, too.

This is a large box and hose about 125 - 150 stamp sets from various companies and about 20 individual stamps that I hope to sell.  I've actually added a bunch more since taking this picture.  I'm hoping to get $200 plus shipping (U.S. only) for the box.  That's about $1.00 per set. That's a tremendous value!!!

Ok, that's my little sales spiel but it's not for any particular company,  just my stash.  So now please click on over to the Stamping Ground and see all the fun desks from all over the world!  I'll be heading there as soon as I grab another cup of coffee!  And after that, I'm gonna stamp!!

And we just got the news about 5:30 am our time... our son and his girlfriend were heading to the hospital to have their baby!!!!  We'll be grandparents again sometime today!!!!

If I were a stamper, I would JUMP a the chance to own all those stamps. Looks like someone will get a good deal.

I had intended to visit before I fell asleep this morning, but sleep won out, especially since either blogger is very slow today, or my computer is on its last leg. Happy WYOWW from # 1.

Sounds like you had a great time at the stamping convention. Congratulations, in advance, on the birth of your newest grandchild! Happy WOYWW from Laura #54

Cleaning out the old stamps, gosh that is a brave move. so is their a link to where you are selling them or have i missed something? I hope all goes well with the birth.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

If I was in the US I'd be queueing up to buy those stamps... You are very disciplined to get rid of old stash to make room for the new - not sure I could do that!!! As for your heatwave, I really couldn't cope with that, and I am hoping we won't have too hot a summer here in the UK this year. Congratulations on becoming grandparents - I wonder what they had? How exciting!

Thanks for your lovely comment, and I'm glad you like my little lavender bags. I'm getting on quite well but have a few more to finish before I think I've got enough.

Happy belated WOYWW,

Good for you, Carol! I keep trying to purge .. have done a little but need to do much more. It would be easier if I had the energy to sign up with FSJ. Then I could start fresh but just cannot part with my Angel stuff and memories. Have fun with your new ventures!
