Fall House Cleaning.

Before I list these items on Ebay; I would like to offer them to my blog readers first. The prices are my starting bids prices, so you cannot get a better deal by waiting for the auction. I will offer them on my blog until September 17th!

All of my items are in like new condition. Shipping/handling is $3.00 per item or $5.00 for two or more items based on shipping in the Continental US. Contact me by email at As items are taken, they will be removed from the list. This list will appear weekly for the next four weeks; new items may be added as my house cleaning frenzy takes hold.

If you have any questions, I will also be happy to answer them via email (faster than using comments). Payment is accepted via money order/cashiers check. Personal checks are fine; I will wait for check to clear prior to shipment. Once on Ebay, PayPal will be an option, but it is not available at this time. Thank you and Happy Shopping! I hope you think these are bargains!!
