As October is fast approaching it’s time to start preparing my Hollyween decorations for the “Great Hollyween Yard Sale!”. You may or may not know this about me , I’m a Halloween fan , not just an ordinary Halloween fan, a FANATIC!
Yes, my love of all things Halloween goes way back and I have prepared a future post chronicling the whole story of my love of that glorious holiday. This is just a quick post to tell of the start of my pre-moving Halloween purge! I’m not planning to ship all this to Panama, I’m pretty sure Boquete isn’t ready for the likes of The Hollyween Extravaganza ! We shall be retiring from such elaborate party hosting . I can hear the collective sigh of relief coming from our future neighbors!🎃
On Saturday Scott and I got my whole collection down from the attic . We then emptied the contents of about thirty or so boxes onto our back patio. Whew! 🎃. It looks like Halloween threw up on my patio!!! It’s literally covered in every Halloween decoration you can possibly imagine. Sooooooo time to make a few texts to some friends who wanted a preview before the actual yard sale…….
In just two days I had five girlfriends over and sold $1,000.00 worth of decorations! And believe it or not, it only made a small dent in my collection! So I’m off to a pretty good start . Selling my collection is bittersweet but I’m so committed to our new life plan . And honestly, after our last party , nearly 200 people, we were pretty burnt out and exhausted. It was lots of fun and I have incredible memories but it’s time to move on. I’ve had many, many friends begging me to have,”just one last party!” , and as tempting as it is to have a going away party, we just don’t have it in us. No, it’s Bye ,Bye, to that part of our life and so my collection of bats, spiders, pumpkins, goblins, ghouls witches and skeletons are slowly finding new homes! The great Hollyween Purge has begun and there’s no stopping me now!!! Just another part of the march towards The Big Adventure!
