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!

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!
