The end of a bookcase

Last week we sold the apartment! On Monday and Tuesday the apartment was shown to prospective buyers, on Wednesday it was “bidding day” and on Thursday we signed the contract with the buyer! On May 30th we’ll finalize the sell and handover the keys. We have many fun days ahead of us. 🙂

As excited as I am to move it’s a little sad too… we’ve owned the apartment for since 2008 we we came back to Sweden from the US, but I’ve been to it many many times before as it was purchased by my grandparents in the mid 80’s. Can’t help but feel a little sentimental about moving.

Today my hubby, brother and father had the fun job of taking down our wall of bookcases. As it was fixed to the wall we had offered the buyer to keep it but he didn’t need it so away it goes. We’ll try to sell it very cheap (or give it away as long as it’s picked up… haven’t decided which yet).

    Wow! Congratulations!~ That’s very exciting. We actually bought a place on Friday!!!!!!! I can’t WAIT until it settles and we can move in. It will be SO nice to be able to do some gardening, landscaping, and buying nice furniture that will suit our house and get rid of some of the old crap we have been carting around. What a pity about the shelves. You should have saved yourself the bother and told the buyer that the shelves are part of the fixtures that come with the house. haha. You can’t use them in your new place? Have you moved into your new place yet? How is it all going!!?!?!?!?!? xo

      Congrats on the house! That’s exciting! Do you have a move-in date yet? We’ll get the keys to the house on May 20th! Can’t wait! 🙂 No place for the bookcases I’m afraid. I’ve decided to “clean out” a lot and don’t have so much stuff anymore so away they go. 🙂

        We should be able to move in early June. I can’t WAIT! Then hopefully we can get out of the lease on the place we are renting now as it is not expiring until August….. 🙂 I hope someone can use the book shelves! And I can’t wait to see pics of your new place once you’ve moved in!

          Exciting! Then I’m looking forward to see pics from your new place. 🙂 Good luck with the move and I’ll keep my fingers crossed you’ll get out of the lease. We got rid of the bookcases much easier than expected… my brother wanted them! 🙂
