I'm moving...take my stuff!

488-sq ft
For nearly five years, I've lived in a 488 square-foot studio apartment. It's the first apartment I've had that is all my own. This cozy lab has allowed me to experiment with my style and has given me a space to figure myself out. Halloweens, birthdays, dinner parties, Rock Band nights, Gilmore Girls marathons, photoshoots...this space has seen it all.

This studio has also started to seem incredibly small for the last couple of years. Don't get me wrong, I don't need a ton of space. I appreciate how it forces me to make tough choices before bringing things into the house. Still, I dream of being able to shut a bedroom door. I want to throw another party. So, when the opportunity to upgrade to a one-bedroom apartment in my same complex came up, I jumped on it (almost literally). I move in under a month!

In order to pare down a bit before moving, I thought I'd see if could give away a few things and move with less. If you want any of this, claim it in the comments.

letterpress drawer (similar to the one linked)
random box of books (that I haven't read)
random box of yarn
blue and brown floral shower curtain
yellow batik shower curtain
owl scarf rack
set of metal robots
set of urban vinyl toys

P.S. Will also be offering these same things to work peeps.


  1. What a sweet and generous idea! I would jump on it except that I'm also trying to pair down our things in preparation for change...

    I wanted to stop by to let you know I responded to your question about the planner on my blog (in the comments of that same post).

    Best wishes to you as you move. I hope it goes well and that you can find help to make it easier!

  2. Congrats on the move!!! I will take the letter press drawer if no one else has claimed it! What a sweet idea

  3. I wish you had emailed on Tuesday, Carrie! Unfortunately, one of my co-workers claimed it yesterday morning. :-/
