Uncle Bennie

Uncle Bennie

About a month ago I was in Vancouver for a girls weekend and it just so happened to be the same weekend my mom and aunt were in town to help my great uncle Bennie clean out his house and have a garage sale as his house is sold and he has downsized to a senior's complex. I think the fact that he had to move was pretty hard as change is never easy and neither is knowing the new owners are demolishing the house to build a larger newer one.

So on the Saturday afternoon I though I would stop by Bennie's house and visit and check out the garage sale. Well being Vancouver the "garage" sale took place inside his house as the rain prevented it from being outside. I find it very interesting what people of my uncle's generation saved compared to what we save now. I notice I don't place as much value on small gifts, trinkets, etc. If I no longer like it and there is no emotional attachment it goes in a garage sale or the garbage. Whereas his generation saved and placed value on so many items. It's so interesting because you could see how hard it was for Bennie to put some of the stuff for sale it was more because there is no real place to store it anymore than that he did not want it. I happened to have my camera with me and thought I would take some photos of his stuff in the sale as I found it so interesting all that was there. I've posted some of my photos from the sale below to enjoy!

I must send out lots of love to Uncle Bennie :) xoxo
