      Wonderful, Lisa! Enjoy:)

  2. Great ideas! And I totally understand the Minnesota winters, I’m a Minnesotan too haha. Love lounging in my comfies.

  3. Great post, Lora–very comprehensive. It’ll be a great resource for a lot of people, I’m sure. Thanks so much for linking up your posts with us at Vintage Charm 🙂

    Great tips! I love estate sales. Definitely one of my favorites, and now I am hosting mini ones in my home for a friend. Going well so far. They do not do numbers here in Utah. Also, now curb finds. 🙁 We have to take them to a donation place or dump. I’ve never participated in an auction, but would love to some time. Thanks for sharing your tips with SYC.

    1. Interesting to hear the different “opportunities” in other states. I love estate sales, but I have to be able to go into the house;)

  5. Thanks for not sharing our *specific* thrift stores…some things can stay a secret 😉

    1. Ha! I also didn’t share my favorite cities to junk in; some secrets just can’t be divulged!

    1. Thanks Julie! Think I could honestly expand on the insider tips & turn it into a book?. One of many ideas lately…
