The Salvation Army can be an ugly, scary, and often smelly place. However, it is at the Salvation Army that many treasures can be found to decorate and enhance the home. Anything from old records to board games to furniture. We try to make a pass through our local spot at least once a month.
For example, last month . . . for a mere $75, we found THIS vintage console . . . which is the focal point for the most stylish corner of our house:
The $75 bought us a whole set of matching furniture -- but the other pieces weren't in great condition, so we donated them (dresser, end table, and mirror) back to the Salvo right on the spot. After a little (OK, a lot of) cleaner and some furniture polish -- it looks like we scored this console at some fancy antique store. And it's certainly a unique piece that no one else has.
Have you ever had a thrift store adventure that resulted in the acquisition of something you now absolutely couldn't live without? Or have you ever turned something you might have donated into a new piece that you now couldn't part with?
