On Friday, I got an email sent from my dad to his immediate family members in the area. It read:
“We’re moving in October and cleaning out our crawl space. Would any of you be interested in taking what we find. ie. Toys, chairs, furniture, etc?”
Knowing full well that a lot of MY stuff is still crammed in my parents crawl space, I emailed an urgent letter back pleading with them not to get rid of my old stuff! Those are my precious childhood memories stuffed into that back breaking tunnel in their basement. So on Friday night, Hubby and I went over to go through some of the stuff and much to his chagrin, saved my old treasures from being given to someone else or pitched. Phew! We loaded our car with stuff like all the old Serendipity Books:
Unfortunately due to limited storage space, we couldn’t take more than some books and a small dresser, but I promised my parents that we will take the remaining boxes of other 80s goodness into our new place when Hubby and I buy our first home. So my parents will be storing my stuff in those weird ‘pod things’ until they move. Double phew!
How about you readers? Do you still have some of your childhood things? What are some books/toys/figurines that you could never part with?
