She mentioned that she just wasn’t as excited about her Tiffany anymore, so my answer was swift: Sell it! After all, a single Heath entree plate costs $44, and her current collection doesn’t yet cut it for her famous dinner parties. But she obviously wasn’t entirely sure, as she’d also consulted her hubby and twin sister about it.
I think she should go for it. Our tastes change, and so do our treasures. But I also wonder if she’ll someday regret it just a little.
What about you? Would you sell one beloved object to finance another? If you’ve done so, did you ever wish you hadn’t?
Interestingly, another friend just posted on Facebook that he’s selling off pretty much everything in his house to start anew. That’s bold, but I tend to get a little too attached for such a widespread purge. One or two things, though? No problem.
