Lately, I’ve been stalking thrift stores, Craigslist, Close5, Facebook yard sale pages and every other second-hand selling outlet known to mankind.
Ok, let’s be honest, I’m always stalking those places. But the 70’s Landing Pad has given me a more valid excuse to stalk and buy more. Yea, so there’s that. P.S. You can see some of my new purchases here.
Anywho, there tends to be a lot of crap out there that people want to get rid of – particularly on Craigslist. Now, I’m a believer in the “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure” motto, but really I just don’t need your passenger side car door from a 1997 Nissan Altima or your used hairbrush. Yep, I saw a hairbrush for sale on the Craigslist yesterday, folks. Now, I’m sure both the Altima car door and hairbrush could be very valuable to many people. However, I’m not one of them. While I would love to have enough time everyday to just scroll through all the newly listed for sale items on places like Craigslist, Facebook yard sale pages, etc., and find that little gem among all the other crap, I don’t. What I do have time for though is to search for specific keywords that help me find what I’m looking for – or what I suddenly realized I was looking for when I find it.
