Re: DECORATING WITH A THRIFT STORE FIND

I think it is cute...we have some great thrift stores..but here in the Aspen Colorado area they think their junk is worth a lot of money...we have an auction here every month at the fairgrounds and everyone brings their junk to sell..so it is a great way to collect..I am taking several containers of my junk today...

Re: Window

cool ideas girl...I read where your looking for burlap sacks. I have a one hundred year old ranch in Big Piney Wyoming where I dig for treasures when I go there. I found fifty or more in a box. They are very unique, with horses, people, wagons, very colorful, very Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, as that is the names on most of them. I would sell you some if you would like for five dollars plus shipping which would be cheap as I could just ship them. I believe you will adore them and you can write me a shawneenov@aol.com my name is Lori I run a business here in Colorado called the Gypsy Chix...funky finds redone to fine furniture...and I can't use all of them...would like to get rid of some...if you would like a couple..lori
