A couple in their 50s have decided to sell the "stuff that fills our lives" at two yard sales and sail around the world.
Information technology manager Ian Clarke, 50, and wife Ann, 54, who works for a bank, have announced plans to "sell up and go sailing" in an advertisement in their village newsletter.
They say "almost everything" will be on offer at yard sales on May 9 and May 31 at their home in Shepreth, Cambridgeshire.
"We will be leaving Shepreth and selling the house," says the couple's notice in the All Saints' Shepreth Church and Village Newsletter.
"We need to sell almost everything else too - as we will be living on the sea aboard our yacht."
It adds: "We will be holding two yard sales with all sorts of things from our life on the land for sale."
The couple say everything from a Volkswagen Eos car and furniture to "all the other stuff that fills our lives" will be on offer.
