Auctions

My sister is a computer programmer with a shopping addiction. So she decided to start channeling that addiction into a business. She buys and sells antique and vintage items. And sometimes, plain, old crap.

I’m of two minds on this business. There is nothing more exciting than hearing her phone go off with bids on Sunday night. (Ebay app for Iphone). I’m part of the shipping department.

I’ve never discussed my anxiety issues with too many outside my family. But when we have to start packing I get the biggest anxiety attack and I get mean. So I don’t do the actual packing. I do the postage and labeling. I’m also the packaging materials acquisition expert.

Another problem I have is I’m an aspiring minimalist. This business and minimalism do not go together.

I guess you could call me a minimalist hoarder.
