When a friend of mine retired, she invited the entire county of art teachers
to a sale of her artroom collections from over the years. This included
books, videos, lesson folders, photo folders, still life props, and you name it.
You know the scenerio...we save just about everything....I think she even had
100's of egg cartons! The proceeds????? towards a retirement cruise trip for
herself and her family. We really didn't care....good gracious, it takes years
and years to accumulate this stuff and it was well worth the "asking price"
that she would apply to her "golden treasury of ART ROOM findings". She had
placed prices on everything before we came so that negotiating wasn't necessary.
Maybe at some point you'll be at that stage. It was so great and we had a
ball too. It was held during POST-planning when we were all rejoicing about the
end of the year!
