Spring is in the air at MD Design. We love this time of year -- not only because it marks the end of Winter, but because its yard sale season! Next week at The National Home Show, Melissa and Halina will be speaking about ‘The Designers Guide to Yard sale-ing’.

Here is a sneak peak of what they will be talking about:

What to Sell

  • Anything you have not used in the last year. If it takes you longer than 5 seconds to think of when you last used it, GET RID OF IT!

How to De-clutter your Space

  • Designers know, Less is More! Remove everything from a room, and only put half of the     accessories back -- get rid of the rest.

How to Shop -- See the Potential and Do-it-Yourself

  • The earlier you arrive the greater the selection, but the later you go, the better the bargain!
  • Yard Sales are great for simple DIY Projects -- look for lamp bases that you like, and update them with a new shade.

Every year, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation hosts a yard sale for the Cure. This year, the sale is on May 26, 2012. There will be many organized sites throughout the GTA, -- it is a great place to drop off your old items, or shop around to find something new; Or you can host your own sale!
