I’ve officially started saying goodbye to my some of my past.
My home office is filled with collectibles, the largest percentage of which is dominated by Wonder Woman and Star Wars. There are some odds and ends from a variety of other franchises too. Action figures, dolls, statues… you get the idea. I kept say for months now that I needed to start putting these things out on eBay. I just don’t have a clue what I’m doing on that front, and I really don’t want to bother with it. I could have taken it to a consignment store. Decided not to. Instead, one of my friends has decided he’s going to sell them on eBay for me. Things have been negotiated. All I had to do was get the stuff ready to go.
The first batch of WW action figures left out my front door this afternoon. I’m not going to lie. It hurts. Not as badly as I feared, but I wasn’t as numb as I hoped either. There’s a lot of money tied up in those, which is part of the point. But there’s a lot of energy tied up in it too, positive and negative. It’s keeping me stuck. I hope these toys end up in the hands of those who will truly appreciate them.
