I absolutely love Freecycle. This week, I received a small corner 3 tier shelve from a woman who was considering putting it out to the curb. I was able to pick up the piece before trash day, I restore it and retouched it; with some fresh chalk (color: primitive paint. This project took me about 4 hours, and I am very pleased.
I am really enjoying restoring furniture. I have one more table that I’ve been working on. I really want to finish it before the temperatures drop. I can’t wait to post pictures!
You know that old saying, one man’s junk is another’s treasure. Well, TRUTH is
there’s entire movements out there based on this theory. Sharing, Yard Sales, Ebay,
Barter sites, Craigs List and so on.
Recently I started joining facebook yardsales (oh yes, virtual yard sales) type in your Town name and yard sale or virtual yard sale and see what pops up in your area. (my cousin Cheryl turned me on to the yard sale thing) Amazing deals and great for kids, home improvement projects. You can also post “ISO” (took me a bit to figure ISO means IN SEARCH OF) Working on a sewing project ? post : ISO fabric remnants. Here I go rambling again, this post, about Freecycle.org was inspired by a recent comment I made on a pillow post by Lorela of Life with Lorelai. Lorelai rocks all her posts, take a minute to click on this link and see what she has share…
