Shameless Self-Promotion

Please excuse the advertising, but we’re having a garage sale this weekend!

We live the in the Best Neighborhood in Portland—Concordia—(honestly, it’s true, Mayor Potter gave us an award and everything) and each summer the whole neighborhood gets together and has a massive neighborhood-wide garage sale. It’s crazy… This year there are likely to be around 100 families having sales.

We’ve been de-cluttering, as has Sarah’s mom, and have put together a pretty nice assortment of stuff. We thought you’d be especially interested in knowing that we’re selling two Brother conventional sewing machines for $25 a pop. We promise the stuff is pretty nice—and the clothes (both women’s & men’s) are almost all consignment/resale shop quality. Lots of them are perfect for reconstruction or updating, while others are good as is. And, Sarah’s mom is parting with the raddest pair of gold-colored silk pants ever!

Here’s a teaser of some of the clothes:

Sarah’s mom is also greatly reducing her shoe collection. Fifty pairs of high heels are just a few too many for a high school English teacher. She’s quite the shoe aficionado, so if you wear a women’s shoe size 8-9, you may find something awesome.

Anyway, if you’re in the Portland area check out the 10th Annual Concordia Neighborhood Garage Sale this weekend. You can pick up maps at NE 33rd Ave. & Killingsworth. If you’re interested in our particular sale, email us at sewersewist [at] gmail [dot] com and we’ll send you the address details.

If you stop by and mention that you found out about our garage sale on Sewer-Sewist, we’ll give you a free popsicle! (Usual price: 50 cents.)

We now return to our usual programming…

It looks like we’re having an intermittent problem with the commenting function here at Sewer-Sewist. So, if you try to leave a comment and you’re told to enter a security code and there’s not one to enter or there’s some other problem with trying to talk to us, would you be so kind as to drop us an email and let us know so we can continue to work on the problem? We can always be reached at sewersewist [at] gmail [dot] com.

Thank you so much!

Out of commission

Our computer is having some issues, so until that’s fixed, you won’t hear much from us. We’ve got lots and lots to post once we’ve got this issue resolved, though!
