Consignors are purging when they pay us a visit, but sometimes decluttering is more about what you are keeping, what “sparks joy”. The beauty of decluttering and keeping the things that mean something, is you can really appreciate your true momentos.
My mother, Jane, started a great tradition with family momentos, and provides one for each of her 6 grandchildren on their birthdays. These are momentos we will not consign or sell (and believe me, I sell anything, just ask Molly about the time I sold her desk chair while she was making tea in the backroom…) My Mom had this momento and story for Emma this year on her 15th birthday. What a treasure!
