When I was finally able to admit (with some insistent “urging” by my husband, Mel) that my kitsch collection had gotten a bit out of hand ( collectors anonymous, anyone?) I contacted the Style Network’s show, “Clean House,” to tell them of my plight.

They were ecstatic; I, however, had/have mixed feelings. Consequently, on Feb 12, the show will be holding their infamous Yard Sale in a location to be determined in our town of Alameda, CA ( an island city  next door to Oakland and about 20 mins from San Francisco).

If you want in on the action –  to donate, to collect,  as wanna-be reality show star, looky-loo or all of the above – load up your station wagons and come on over.

    This, needless to say, is an auspicious occasion there at AWMOK!! I fanatically watch Clean House. I don’t normally associate it with collectors. not that many of the folks on there don’t view themselves as collectors. But you’re a REAL collector. I really am hooked on that show despite obvious flaws, really tacky acting other than Niecy Nash standing out, but the show fascinates me nonetheless.

    A couple things that do horrify me though on Clean House is that you they make you throw out so many family possessions and – and I only say this to someone who is a REAL collector – they don’t understand the value of collectibles. I do know you to be a person of taste with an excellent eye for kitsch so I hope they’re not gonna strip you of your personality. But with this said, I’ve never been to your place and I’m assuming that it’s much more extreme than I’ve ever imagined!! And I’m also a massive believer in stripping out possessions that allow you to have the space to live.

    it’s killing me that I can’t get up there for that sale because I know how they encourage you let let things go for pennies on that show. Now how long did you say it takes to get there from LA?!

    Oh boy I wish I lived closer! I would spend all day at your house! I love the show too but sometimes they do go too far with getting rid of certain keepsakes and what not. I am really opposed to that!

    Can’t wait! This is going to be a very fun event…not only will there be great stuff but Jessica and Mel are wonderful down to earth folks. If you love kitsch, you really don’t want to miss out. (Luckily for me it’s less than 1/2 a mile from my house…but I would make a much farther trek if I had to.)
