Today I trucked a carload of items to Global Thrift, the charity I talked about last time. As part of my donation, I gave them two bronze statues that I am pretty sure are quite valuable. My grandparents got them in China back in the days when going to China was a really rare kind of thing to do. At first, I thought it was kind of a waste to donate this to a thrift store that would probably undervalue it and sell it for a fraction of what it is worth. If I donated it to a charity art auction or something like that they might net a better take for the charities. But I don’t have time to figure that out since I move in a week. When I gave them the statues, I mentioned that they were valuable and they seemed really psyched to have such cool looking statues. But I have a feeling that my fears will come true. Part of me wants to go in to the store next week and see what they price tag is. But I think maybe I shouldn’t or I will probably have an odd sort of buyer’s remorse.
I still have a lot of stuff to donate because my car can only fit so much. Plus I have the three big things that I can’t fit in the car at all, nor can I lift them myself. I am hoping that Brad and his trusty SUV can help me bring those in. But he decided to go on vacation to NYC with his wonderful family. So I have to wait until next weekend, the day before I move. That will stress me out to no end, but what can I do? Practice my coping skills I guess :-).
