Of Collectors and Horders
I suppose I fall somewhere in between. Its rather unfortunate (or, fortunate - for me) that most people pass up second hand stores for home decoration, books and clothes (and a number of other things). The majority of amazing things in my home have been found in thrift stores, flea markets, thrift shops. My blue dog here is a recent item I found at Savers. I didn't find his mate (and I assume he had one, don't these statues usually come in pairs?) but he was so beautiful I couldn't pass him up and look how he gorgeous he makes my bookshelve look! Someday I would love to afford things like Natural Curiosities but until I hit the jackpot I'm completely happy with my thrifting.
