Well… here goes nothing!
A new year gives a new lease on life, or so they say. A change in circumstance has brought me to be a stay at home mom-not-mom as we call it. The bills still need to get paid, so I have become thew newest resident in the world of flipping. I have always enjoyed yard sales and thrift stores. I was brought up that way. I view it as a treasure hunt. You never know what you will find, and for what price. Yes, there are thrift stores full of ancient junk that should probably be put out of it misery, but then there are the gems that are set apart by the others. Friends cannot believe that some of the things I come home with came from the thrift store and that I got them for pennies compared to thier original retail price. Gucci rain boots? check. Designer purses? Check. A bag of vintage toys that was intermitently strewn with cash? Yeah, well check that one off too. Then there are the awesome vintage finds. Silk dresses that would have been work to cocktail parties, Jewelry that had to have at one time been a family heirloom, Antique furniture that has seen how many years of love and use, Can you imagine the stories that some of these things could tell if they could? This is part of what drives my passion. I love things.
So, I hope you will join me in my thrifty journey. My blog here will be updated at least twice a week. Ideally Tuesday and Thursday. I’ll showcase my recent finds, some history about the items, and my tales of success or woe in trying to find them new homes. I’ll give up some tricks to finding the good stuff, and how to weed though the junk, and what to do with it once you find it. I’ll host a shop in a perfect world, where you can be the proud new owner of some of these finds. In the meantime, , if your curiosity gets the best of you, feel free to browse my eBay.
Thanks for stopping in, and Good Hunting!
