All manner of things shall be SELL

I have mountains of things that I want -- nay, need -- to get rid of. It would be nice to swap some of them for piles of the little round beer tokens with the Queen's head on; but generating space is at least as important as the money.

Possible options I'm considering are a garage sale (well, a house sale, since we can't actually use the garage at the new house) or a blanket sale (like a car boot sale, only, er, with blankets) somewhere other than our house. If it's a blanket sale, other people will be able to come and sell their stuff too! The most likely date for this madness appears to be the August Bank Holiday weekend, but unfortunately that's also the date when everybody buggers off to sit in traffic jams for 3 days. So, a quick poll:

Poll #540443 Sale of the Century

18(54.5%)
Probably not
5(15.2%)
No
1(3.0%)

Would you want to sell your own junk too?

Yes
5(15.2%)
Maybe
11(33.3%)
Probably not
8(24.2%)
No
9(27.3%)

If you're interested, which day(s) of the Bank Holiday weekend would be best for you?

Saturday 27th August
0(0.0%)
Sunday 28th August
2(8.0%)
Monday 29th August (BH Monday)
1(4.0%)
None of the above
11(44.0%)


I should also mention that while I have done (and will continue to) sell bits and bobs on eBay from time to time, there's just Too Much Stuff here for me to be able to list it all on eBay within a reasonable time-frame (I want to get rid of this stuff before the end of 2005!) while holding down a full-time job. And while I may fantasise about quitting my tedious office job and starting up some kind of house-clearance and eBay brokering company, I'm not actually about to do it Right Here, Right Now.
