Article of Interest: Finders Keepers

I receive these emails from Sherwin Williams STIR Magazine. Most of the articles are interesting and have good information.

This article in particular caught my eye and I wanted to share it with you:


It's all about how decorating with found objects is coming back in style. I didn't know it had ever gone out of style! I'm glad more people are recognizing the value of repurposing, both to save money and to be more "green". It's also a great way to add something unique to your home that shows you personal style.

I'm also a little bummed because it seems like those who are selling also recognize the value of their goods. It seems like some things are so expensive- at the thrift store! Maybe it's just the ones by my house?

What do you think? How do you feel about this new rise in the value of junk? Have you always been a "Finder Keeper"?

I just so happened to be in an antique/junk shop today. I was amazed at how high the prices were. There is a limit that I will pay for my junk. :) You are right I have found that prices in re-sale shops are going up.

I like garage sales better than thrift stores these days for "findings." Thrift stores know what they can sell something for...people selling at a yard say may not know, or they may just not care because they want to get it out of their house!

I wanted to send a late thankyou for your sweet comment on my apples last month. :-)
