If the holidays delievered good fortune, than many folks are making room for new items in their homes which means the old stuff hits the curb or better yet Good Will and other thrift stores.
I happened to stop at our local mission yesterday located conveniently across the street from the post office where I was dropping off a few packages. Hmmm, I guess it doesn't hurt to peek in and see if any new goodies have arrived. I didn't stick around too long, but long enough to score a rather good find.

See how these little trips to the thrift stores become addictive? You just never know what you are going to find. This particular mission store has a barrel lid steamer trunk that I've been keeping my eye on too. Do I have room for it? "Ummm, No." But it's so cool.
Anyway, be on the lookout for discards because you just may discover the "gem" of the day. I guess that's a bit lofty for an IKEA picture frame. We''ll say a GREAT BARGAIN FIND! There, that's better.
Here's to "Happy Finding!"
