They say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, in this case the trash is this woman’s treasure. I found this lovely rattan étagère abandoned on the sidewalk along with some stinky old rugs. The étagère is in mint condition, with not a single break. While my preference is for closed storage (it hides a multitude of sins), I couldn’t pass up this charming little thing and did a quick U-turn to rescue it from its fate. The other items weren’t set out to be trashed, but they were cheap. The three solid brass candleholders were from a garage sale, they’re not vintage but have a vintage look, $7 for the set originally from Crate & Barrel. The B&W photograph is a weird, super intriguing image, almost ghostly and $20 for original art is good price in my book. This month’s expenditures, a whopping $27. I like the sound of that!
