Great Finds at Thrift Store and Yard Sales
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” This saying is no more prevalent then going to your local thrift store, Salvation Army, Goodwill, garage or yard sale. I tend to bypass clothing and hone in on items found in home decor, furniture, paintings and kitchen items. What I am looking for is the design, functionality and bones (physical structure) of the item in question. Sometimes you can get lucky and find items in mint condition. Then sometimes all it takes is a little sanding, staining or new paint jobs to bring it back to life and a wonderful addition to your home. My current hunt is to find antique frames and paint with black lacquer for a cluster of paintings on the wall.
