Once she's settled in, we'll start emptying the house ... an even bigger challenge than the actual move. We know of some charity organizations which will be happy to collect most of the furniture.
Last Sunday my cousin and her husband came over and gratefully accepted some of the more valuable items of which my mother wanted them to 'stay in the family'. My cousin's husband advised me to put the rest on the internet (eBay) or put it up for sale at a 'brocante' or garage sale. However, after my one and only eBay experience which turned into stalking-like affair in May 2012, I'm very weary about the whole thing. And I just don't have the time or the opportunity to attend 'brocantes' (vide-greniers) or to organize a garage sale.
I wonder if anybody will put in an offer for the socks! Do I detect a raise of hands there?
