UPDATE #2, 5:00 p.m. Tuesday: Good news—a reader friend has offered to take all these things away and post them separately on Ebay in August. I'll be sure to alert TOP readers when that happens.
[UPDATE #1: I had to remove the sale notice. I was hoping to get some offers for all this stuff together, admittedly for my own convenience. It's just that I have no time to part it out and ship things separately to multiple people.
I accepted an offer on my current house that was contingent on a quick closing. It left me without enough time to get a mortgage for my new house and unable to hire a moving company. So I'm having to make an interstate move all on my own and I won't have a house to move in to when I get there. It's something of a logistical nightmare. Lots of work trying to organize everything and get ready. I need to get rid of things, but I have no time to sell things individually.
Very sorry about the inconvenience! It's not that I wouldn't like to accommodate everyone who just wants one or two items, it's just that I'm not able to do it that way at the present time. Sorry again.]

Don Davis: "Boy, oh boy! Last year, I was tasked with liquidating long unused darkroom gear at the newspaper. Stacks of Nikor tanks and reels, Gralabs, film dryers, Leitz easels, Leitz and Nikkor enlarging lenses. Twelve-foot stainless sink. The equipment was unused for nearly fifteen years, but in excellent shape. No buyers or takers! We literally could not give the stuff away to schools. I retired shortly thereafter, and the paper moved to a new building, taking nothing with them from the darkroom. Into the dumpster it went. Talk about moving on!"
Ann: "The house is sold. It could be much worse. I had to do the same thing, by the way, on my last move. I got three weeks to pack, move 1,200 miles and start the new job, and the new house wasn't going to be available for six weeks after we got there. We ended up taking two people, a Great Dane, a cat, and six weeks' worth of possessions across the country in a Honda CR-V, and putting everything else in storage until the new house was ready. We spent a week in a terrible furnished apartment, a week couch surfing, three weeks in a Residence Inn, and convinced our sellers to move a week early. It was hard, but we got it done. You will too."
