Happy Saturday my friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week and are ready to enjoy some you time this weekend.
Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite places to find the treasures I’m re-styling.
Craigslist: This is a world wide classified site that has everything from diapers to antiques and everything in between! LOVE me some Craigs!
Local Flea Markets and Antique Malls: These are my go to places to find great furniture. Many people don’t have the vision to get past the ugly and see what a piece could become! I know you ladies don’t have that problem so finding a little treasure for your home won’t be so hard.
Yard Sales & Estate Sales: It’s starting to get cold here so yard sale season is almost over. These are always hit and miss for me, as are estate sales. The first 2 estate sales Mom & I went to were fantastic! We only go on the last day, which is 75% off. Last weekend we hit 2 estate sales and did not buy one thing. That’s how it goes for me right now.
I’m getting into a schedule here, shopping 2 days a week (yes that’s work lol), refinishing 3 days a week, stocking on day 6 and resting on day 7. With so many different things I do now it’s helped my body tremendously. I’m not sitting in one place doing the same thing for hours on end! I’ve even met some real live people lol That can’t be all bad ;)
I am enjoying this new gig a lot and learning so much along the way. I can’t imagine where I will be a year from now! I’m pouring my heart and soul into this, as I always do. It seems to me the more of myself I give the more I get back from so many people. Good karma, don’tchaknow!
Here are a few great quotes to inspire you this week!
