I don't generally post many of my current finds...in an effort to keep the suspense and element of surprise for JunkFest.
But a recent morning of garage sale success has me bubbling over with glee and gratitude, so I'd like to share.
For without the time and effort a homeowner puts into having a garage sale (instead of tossing to the trash)...
or the courtesy call from a business owner, neighbor, or farmer down the road (instead of opting to discard)...
we junkers would have no outlet of opportunity to unleash our creative juices.
These goods are the canvas of OUR art.
Without them we can't do what we do, and we can't be who we are.
We express ourselves by repairing, restoring, refinishing, repurposing, and reinventing.
And so we say "Thank You" for making it possible for us to find our canvas, work our magic and in turn allow you to enjoy a piece that may have been destined to be discarded and forgotten.
