    Minnesota woman selling most of her crap on eBay

    ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) -- Lisa Perry wants a fresh start. So she's decided to sell nearly all of her belongings in one massive auction on eBay.

    Perry, 45, said the top bidder in the auction, ending Thursday, will get more than 300 items -- including snowshoes, a futon, a bed, a Village People album, seashells and more.

    Perry is keeping just a few things: her dog, her cat, photo albums and some clothing.

    "This might be mid-life, but it's not a crisis. It's mid-life excitement," she said. "I don't need it all. I don't use it all. I just have it all. Actually, it has me."

    Perry, has worked as a lawyer in Montana, a communications professor in Mankato, Minnesota, and a bookseller in North Carolina. She now delivers subpoenas and legal documents. In June, she plans to move west, possibly to take up creative writing or holistic healing.

    "I've been schlepping this stuff across the country for more than 20 years," she said. "I'm tired of thinking: 'Oh my God, what if it breaks in the next move?' Who cares? I think it will almost be scary how liberating it will be."

    As of Sunday night, the top bid was $100. Perry has a reserve number of $2,000, which means she can back out if the top bid falls short of that. But she said she might lower the reserve.

    "I'm at the point I just don't want it all anymore," she said.

    Sounds pretty dumb to me. Who is going to want 300 items of junk. Why not sell things individually. This lady should forever be called the "crazy lady".

    I'm going to buy it all and then send it all back to her, plus a bunch of junk I want to get rid of.
