Treasure Hunting

Written by my friend Betty Walls

I have been a homemaker for more than six years now and with that honor, come sacrifices. I haven’t had the luxury of designer clothes or a decorated home but I have been very hands on with the raising of my children. While watching TVByDirect one afternoon, I had a great idea come to me. After seeing the incredible transformations of consignment finds some folks were making, I decided to scour my own local spots and see what inspired me. To my amazement, there are treasures of all kinds to be had. It is amazing what some people will throw out! I have seen high end items with tags still on them for 90% less than department stores. I have gathered an eclectic collection of art and frames for pennies compared to retail prices. I have found unusual one of a kind pieces like chairs to also add into my existing décor. All these little details really make a house feel like a home and I am eager to continue my search for fabulous finds.
