shelf life




i have always always been picking things up on the side of the road. when i traded in my old jeep for a more eco-friendly car..well boy was i missing the space. you know not "the back" but " the WAY back". i could tool around town and pick up just about anything. but alas- the toyota can only hold a trunk full of sweaters, a few old suitcases and maybe a lamp or two. but we make do.
our neighbors down the street where cleaning their old barn out and had put this outside on the curb for pick up. and we did just that. thanks to my brother for cleaning of the worst parts(slugs, spiders, and the like) and thanks to my dad for always taking me junking and giving me the thrifting itch! and by the way spring means FLEA MARKETS. they should be reopening any day now!

Excellent find! I love thrift store and flea markets and such! Yard sales are the best part of the summer. :) Oh, and we used to call that part of our station wagon the Back Back. ;)

Here's to flea markets and garage sales run by the clueless! I've had it with these estate sales--give me good cheap junk!

I love it! My whole family are trash pickers from way back. It's amazing the things that people throw away...and that we're only too happy to reuse!

So that I could still pick up lots of great finds...and save the eco I got a Toyota Highlander Hybrid...now I can put sooo much more in my car and I don't feel guilty driving for an hour to an auction!
