It’s been awhile, and I’m a little rusty but it’s late and I want to get this out so please bear with me. Here are a couple of tips.
First, many of you who use our online system to track your sales (as far as we know, we’re the only consignment store that gives you that option) had difficulty knowing when the consignment period ended, especially when you consigned several times within a few months. We’ve solved that problem by putting a note Consignment ends on XXXXXX following the detail for each of your items. Now you shouldn’t have any problems keeping track of your end date!
Secondly I found out today about a workshop that’s right in line with our mission. Alyce Page the owner of Serendipity by Design will be hosting this informative workshop this Thursday. A colleague for many years, I can tell you that her work as a stager / organizer is above reproach. Here are a few details. Click the link to view the flyer (sorry … I didn’t have time to convert this before my blog deadline).
Organizer and feng shui expert, Alyce Page, joins with spiritual healer, Emily Paul, for a collaborative evening of laughter and letting go. Utilizing the strength and inner joy of laughter meditation, we will explore the energetic perspectives of letting go to create new space in our lives for what nourishes and supports us. Each participant is invited to bring a box of belongings they would like to let go.View the PDF for more information >>> laughter and the art of letting go Sep2015
1) What do you like / not like about this credenza?
2) How much would you pay for it?
It’s where you vote, make tough decisions, entertain, argue, meet, love, share, find comfort, impress and sometimes fail – Your Kitchen.
Different from every room in your home it’s ground zero, the most dangerous and the safest. It’s the neutral zone where most are welcome; it’s rarely off limits and always open. It is the most expensive and often the most neglected.
On my counter I have a Cusinart food processor and coffee maker, and a Kitchenaide blender, toaster and stand mixer. My cupboards hold a set of copper bottom Belgique stainless steel pots and pans, a cast iron skillet and a Calphalon roaster. I can seat six for dinner and I have about a dozen hand utensils. All my spices fit on two shelves. There are other sundries. This is what works for me and it’s really all I want or need.
As I considered this my last post on minimalism, I decided early on that of all the rooms I dare not dissect too much, it would be the kitchen. In fact I invite you to consider only two things as you consider yours. First, your kitchen should be efficient. You work there so make the job as easy as possible. It’s the reason I invested in better quality appliances and cook ware and all but the Cuisinart were used or refurbished.
Second if your table is there, it can be a desk, but it should not be treated as a file cabinet. It’s where notes are passed, keys are left, exchanges occur and negotiations take place. Keep it accessible and don’t be afraid to invest in one that meets the needs of your lifestyle. And that’s it!
Just do what you do in your kitchen. Chances are you already have discovered that it’s at the center of your universe and by definition, it’s already where it needs to be and doing what it’s supposed to do – for you. Besides, anything I would add would probably end up under the sink.
