George Carlin had a classic routine about stuff. Spring is the traditional season to clear the clutter of accumulated stuff. But here’s the issue: Is it trash or treasure? For many, the concept of Spring cleaning is an impossible task, and these unfortunate souls could find themselves featured on TLC’s Hoarders- Buried Alive. Another scenario is we find ourselves moving to a smaller space. Downsizing. How do we stuff our stuff into a smaller space? Many have also faced the daunting task of clearing out our parent’s homes. Some of the stuff that was uncovered in my family home included several cases of 20+ year old wine that had turned to vinegar, booze from my wedding in 1978, a hand gun, numerous unopened gifts, assorted pieces of art, and tons of knick knacks that may or may not have been valuable. So we’re back to the trash or treasure dilemma. My guests, Tish Fierro Hess and Gregory Goldman, are in a unique position to determine the difference between “get rid of it right now” ordinary stuff and “OMG, you have one of those gems hidden in your cellar” stuff. Their company, Boxwood Interiors, specializes in interior design, antiques, fine art, and downsizing. They have held Antiques Roadshow type events locally and it was amazing what was brought in to be appraised. Gregory specializes in antiques and fine art, and both he and Tish do interior design. They’ve seen it all and decorated it all. And they have advised many to toss it all. So let’s see what these experts have to say about Spring cleaning and how to tell the difference between trash and treasure.
