"she likes things"

The first post of a new series...

One of my favorite free time activities is rooting through people's stuff, not in a creepy way but mostly just for the fun of the hunt, and the kind of discards that can be found. Now, I have an inside lead on the latest open houses around town, thanks to my friend and fellow collector Sara Mullert, with her new business launch and journey in entrepreneurship. Heirloom Estate Liquidations offers help clearing out homes quickly and with respect for your possessions, honoring your wishes with integrity and dependability. It states that on her business card, but seriously she is very meticulous and knowledgeable about valuables. Congratulations Sara!

Also, for the hoarders out there (I say this with love, it takes one to know one) stay tuned for updates on estate sales throughout San Diego County. Sara is hosting one this weekend in fact, on Saturday and Sunday April 16th-17th from 9am till 2pm. Bring cash!

Wretches & Jabberers

I saw the most liberating documentary this weekend. In honor of Autism Awareness month, Wretches & Jabberers was showing one day only at AMC. The story of two men with Autism who travel the world giving advice/solace/Polaroids to those who also use "abnormal" communication to speak. Larry and Tracey aren't "angels" but they're definitely doing God's work, whoever (s)he may be, spreading awareness that diversity is a normal aspect of humanity, and that it should be celebrated and respected.

On a side note, I used my momentum from the film to order a long awaited for gift to myself, Fugifilm's latest Polaroid camera the Instax 210. Now, find a way to travel the world!
