Subject: RE: April 2013 Showers wash away clutter!!!!!!!!
My grandmother is decluttering her house and sending it north with my mother when she comes to visit. Trying to think of a polite way to tell them all to cut it out. I'm sure they have thrift stores of their own they could donate this stuff to!

One of the boxes in the first load my mother dumped on my doorstep was a set of antique dishes. I took the rest of the load to the local thrift shop, but I thought this one might be worth something, if I could figure out the easiest way to sell it that didn't involve my having to ship or list on some website. That was three months ago, and the dishes still sit. But not for long - a young, recently divorced single mom who was trying to get back on her feet suffered a fire a couple of months back. There was an article about it in one of the free semi-local papers, along with a phone number. I called her and asked if she's like the dishes, if she didn't like them, she could sell them and get something she'd rather have. I emailed her a picture of the pattern, she loves them, and now I just need to come up with a day where I can drive an hour up the coast and drop them off.
