5 Reasons to Visit Your Local Thrift Store

It’s no secret that I love thrifting! Repurposing is the centerpiece of my business, and I’ve written many blogs explaining the reasons I can’t help hitting the thrift stores. But this blog is all about you. Why should you be thrifting? What’s to gain? Isn’t that just old junk? Whether you’ve never visited a thrift store or you used to go but not recently, I hope to spark your interest and get you thrifting again!

Free By The Curb Or How Could I Say No To Such A Great Piece Of Furniture?! – Part 3

Okay, I know some of you are wondering…where did she go?  Why isn’t there a part 3?!  Well, let me explain a little something about myself.  Once I did this piece, I found several other great pieces to work on and so most of my time has been spent in my workshop, sanding and refinishing my little fingers off!  When I get this way, some would say I can be rather compulsive (husband, kids, close friends!).  I want them all done at one time and until that mission is completed, I can’t really focus on anything else!  Anyway, without further ado, here is part 3!

Free By The Curb or How Can I say No To Such A Great Piece Of Furniture?!

How many times have I said, I simply can’t pass up free stuff people have set out by the curb? Probably over a thousand times.  I always look and think of all the things I could do with that piece. How can I just let it sit out there…in the sun…the cold…the rain!  Well, you see where I’m going, right?  If it weren’t for my husband, I would have zero self-control and we would have no room to walk in our house.  I feel about those furniture pieces like I feel about puppies!  I want them all!
