The Monumental Sort!

I am sorting through all my glass inventory, display stuff, and bubblewrap!

Thanks to the assistance of my husband....who has no emotional attachment to any of this stuff...we have whittled everything down to a manageable set of storage containers.  

I know....all you can see is part of a messy table. It's more interesting than neatly packed rubbermaid containers.

The end result is a clearly written inventory of what I have and a glaring awareness of what I need to create to have a beautiful fall show.

My next post will share photos of my Bargain Basement items...priced to sell. My mark up is never high so sales are rare. 
At this point I want to make storage available for new items, so it's good news for you bargain shoppers out there. Most items will be priced at cost of glass...not cost to make (kiln time, tools, my time, etc) A few items will be featured BELOW cost!

That post will be up later today. I just need to take photos and asses the cost per item. I will post a few at a time!

We need a new garage door. 
That means I have to move my boxes of inventory, display racks, and packaging that are in the way. 

This isn't my garage...but it looks like it if you turn it into a 2-car garage. One of our cars does fit....but mine stays outside...at least for now.

The new door arrives tomorrow. I am gifting myself the work week to sort and then re-store my stuff.

The question is what to do with the oldest inventory that no longer resembles work I do?

Hopefully some answers will emerge as I sort!
....wish me luck!

Traveling in search of Glass...entry 1

Pardon my absence. I ran away to Europe with my husband. Among the many things I wanted to do, I wanted to see glass. Architectural glass, antique glass, contemporary glass.....

Our first stop was Ireland. The country is LOOOOONG on natural beauty. We found archeological ruins older than anything we've ever encountered. We found the locals to be so very warm and hospitable. It wasn't until our last night in Dublin that I really found any glass worthy of posting. 

These are evening shots along the river in Dublin. It is in the theater district and as the sun sets, these light poles illuminate the square. 

There are some great glass artists that live in Ireland....I just didn't get to see their work. I guess that's a great reason to go back!
