Ansel Adams Photos Found at Garage Sale

Posted on July 27, 2010

Although we highly recommend removing clutter from your home either by donating items or selling them in a garage sale, we do suggest that you pay close attention to the objects you are discarding. Take for example the small boxes containing 65 glass negatives of Ansel Adams photos that recently surfaced in Los Angeles, California. Rick Norsigian picked up these boxes at a garage sale ten years ago for $45, the items are now worth around $200 million. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!

Sometimes the men are designated to using a small closet in a spare room while the female gets the entire master bedroom walk-in. We can hopefully end the battle and find an alternative to make everyone happy. We can custom design a closet for you and your significant other so that your clothes and accessories can coexist peacefully.
