Garage 1 of several

Some of you know that Ange and I help to run a monthly book sale. We are now in our 12th year .

 

When we started we had a few boxes of books which were kept in a shed in another Lion's garden. Trouble was the mice took a fancy to them and also the number of books also outgrew the shed. So we moved them into various garages. We had the fiction and the none fiction and Children's books are other garages. Now we also have jigsaws and DVDs, CDs and sometimes games, so these along with Classics and Mills and boon romance are in yet another garage. 

 

Now we have added bric a brac and this is in our garage...well some of it is in the house too.

 

After the sale when the stuff comes back it usually needs tidying up a bit......

I suppose you could see it by the Garage-full rather than by the Kilogram, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Buy one get 10 free
Goodness... a bit of stuff there - we would just open the garage door and stick a "SALE" sign out on the street... smile
Bill Phillips: We have been tempted. If we lived on a busy road I think we would!

Quel bazar ! Il y a beaucoup de choses à  éliminer.
Bill Phillips: Believe it or not very little had to be thrown out.
Did I read this right ? You have romance in another garage...Droitwich is not as I thought.....
Bill Phillips: You read it correctly an misinterpreted it perfectly Frank grin
LOL at Frank. I actually recall buying a handful of DVDs from you when we were last with you, Bill. It was a win-win situation!
Bill Phillips: We still have DVDs !

First I thought we are on Lady Transformation's blog. This shed needs an ordering and sorting out hand- and I know the person who is so active and busy in tidying up a bit ....
Bill Phillips: You will be able to follow the transformation here. We have to do this to a greater or lesser degree most months
I am full of admiration for what you and Mrs you do. Clearing out my brothers flat has been a nightmare and a voyage of discovery, he has thousands of interesting hard back books. I could give you a thousand but you would need to bring your lorry up to get them.
Bill Phillips: You could sell them on amazon. I did for quite a while and we made a lot of money for the funds.

I hope your car isn't under all that stuff, Bill!
Bill Phillips: I wish I could put my car in the garage!

Don't worry Bill, most people's garages look like this or worse all the time.
Bill Phillips: True. Trouble is this has to be reasonably tidy to sort the books!

Mills and Boon - I once sold books in a churchyard next to an old age home. When the old ladies discovered we had M&B stock, they flocked over and cleaned the good sized stock in half an hour.
Bill Phillips: We have sold a lot of M&B books over the years

I have a spare bedroom like that. The trouble is that its all my own clutter so I can't blame anyone else. How do you get the car into the garage?
Bill Phillips: The car has not been in the garage for at least the last 7 or 8years
I see they have already been sorted with tags on the boxes. I have several boxes of books in a spare bedroom for a yard sale.
Bill Phillips: Some are sorted some not.
from your description, it still seems there is some order in the method, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The order is there in theory Ayush grin
Our place sounds a bit like Alan's, our 3rd.(smallest) bedroom holds all the stuff we decided to bring down from the loft so we don't have to go up there anymore! Oh and one half of our double garage looks like this as well!
Bill Phillips: There is not a lot in our loft nowadays. Two of our bedrooms are playrooms and one is a"office" we sleep in the remaining one! A car hasn't seen the inside of the garage in years

There does seem to be a slight sense of order in amongst the chaos.
Bill Phillips: There is Anne just needs fine tuning...........

Mines a bit like this .....
Bill Phillips: Many are comrade
And your car stands out in the rain? smile
Bill Phillips: And the frost. I have had to buy cover!
I like the buried bicycle...
Bill Phillips: That is Ange's bike and she uses it regularly....needles to say I had to un-bury it quick!
