Well, I got rid of some of my junk today, and made about $500 in the process. This morning my garage was chock-a-block full, now it is almost empty (while the opposite is true for my wallet LOL). I still have plenty of gear to get rid off though, but not yet … it’s too soon to get rid of the fridge and washing machine etc. The final clearance will be in 2 weeks, anything not sold then will be offered to the Salvos, and if they don’t want it, it will be going to the dump.
My advert in the local paper said from 8a.m., but the first guy arrived at around 6.30 ! At that time I had only just started getting the outside set up, so I had to stop work and keep an eye on him. In fact most of the items were sold by the scheduled starting time of 8.00.
G.A.S. part 2
The lens I recently wrote about turned out to be broken when it arrived, I had been waiting for my camera to come back from Nikon after a sensor cleaning so when it did arrive I tried out the new lens and could n’t work out why every image was over exposed. Then when I held the lens up to the light and looked through it I saw that several of the aperture blades were missing. It seems the lens must have been damaged in shipping from B&H. They were quick to authorise a return though, no questions asked, so kudos to B&H.
