Or rather...making the one that I've had for awhile, active.
I used to sell on ebay but that was when I lived in the States and could go yard sale-ing every week to find treasures.
I did very well with it and loved everything about it - from purchasing -to research - to taking pictures - to enjoying the auction - to receiving a profit (I really liked that part) - to packing it up for shipping. Wait. No. I didn't like that very much...but I did it happily because that meant another item was leaving the house.
Well...we need to clean house. Meaning...sell...pretty much everything we own.
We've decided that Colombia is not the place for us to live.
I came here because my daughter married a Colombian fella and they brought the baby here after graduating University. So, of course I had to follow. I AM annie! grandma after all.
My hubby really isn't happy here and to be honest, the last couple times that we've returned from the States, I've had a hard time coming back.
If it weren't for my Sophia, my granddaughter, I would have followed my very first impression from my very first visit...and never moved here.
There are many beautiful things about this country...and about Barranquilla...but it just isn't home.
So, we will make a trip to the States in February to find, buy and close on a humble home.
|See that light top center? That's our apt bldg.|
We plan - for the first couple years - to keep our apartment and spend most of our time here...in Barranquilla.
Then, later down the road, when I've weaned myself from the granddaughters...who are my heart and soul...we'll spend the majority of our time in FL with 2 or 3 visits to Colombia each year.
I always told my kids that if they moved away they would need to plan on me coming to visit them every few months for a month at a time. They're finding out that I was serious about that.
Anyway, before I find myself crying - because the thought of being separated from the girls is simply heart wrenching, let me get back to the subject.
I'll soon be adding an etsy link to my blog and items -
both vintage chachkies and my art - to sell in my bohemiannie! art shop.
The first thing I've taken pictures of is this old metal Pepsi sign.
It'll be the first thing I list. Yep...You wouldn't BELIEVE the stuff I brought down here. But most of it won't be coming back.
Anyhoo...please check back after the holidays because I'll be listing lots of items in preparation for our trip to the States. Suitcases OUT will be full this time - and in the future, rather than empty.
BTW, the pictures I'm posting are some that I've taken around the neighborhood lately - fireworks included - and aren't really related to the post. Any questions, just ask.
