Clutter, chaos, treasures, and weight loss

 

     Here I am exhausted after another day of digging through the clutter and chaos that is my MIL’s house.  We found three huge lard cans filled with old china.  I was able to identify the one set as Mojen MJN4.  The twenty-two karat gold rim on each item is exquisite.  I have no room to store it.  Therefore, with the china and few other pieces I am building quite a vanload of items to take to the nearest antique shop.

     I’ll have to examine the other set closer to find the identifiers.  It was sheer luck that I remembered the first one’s manufacturer and was able to look it up when I got home.

     G is finding that our work over at the house has provided another advantage.  She lost a pound from all the work we did on Wednesday and is hoping that today’s work has the same results.

  1. It is a good idea to take those dishes etc. to an antiques dealer, but only to get an appraisal on the items. They and pawn shop brokers will only give you pennies on the dollar. I would therefore not indicate I was interested in selling them other than on my own, get their value, then decide what to do. Good luck with that and good luck to G with her weight loss.

    I have no other recourse than to sell the stuff because I have no place to store them.
