Next week at The National Home Show, Melissa and Halina will be speaking about ‘The Designers Guide to Yard sale-ing’.
Here is a sneak peak of what they will be talking about:
What to Sell
- Anything you have not used in the last year. If it takes you longer than 5 seconds to think of when you last used it, GET RID OF IT!
How to De-clutter your Space
- Designers know, Less is More! Remove everything from a room, and only put half of the accessories back — get rid of the rest.
How to Shop — See the Potential and Do-it-Yourself
- The earlier you arrive the greater the selection, but the later you go, the better the bargain!
- Yard Sales are great for simple DIY Projects — look for lamp bases that you like, and update them with a new shade.
Every year, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation hosts a yard sale for the Cure. This year, the sale is on May 26, 2012. There will be many organized sites throughout the GTA, — it is a great place to drop off your old items, or shop around to find something new; Or you can host your own sale!
