...it's nice to meet you!
melissa from lucky olive here, and i'm terribly excited to join these lovely, inspiring ladies as a contributor to tag sale tales.
my specialty has been unearthing midcentury and danish modern furniture at unassuming yard sales, but i'm always up for a trip to the flea market or goodwill for anything gorgeous or peculiar.
let's see...a little background...
i once worked in the photography world in manhattan, but now i'm living a subversive rural/suburban lifestyle behind a sheep farm in upstate new york with a husband and a toddler. being so isolated from the city has a distinct advantage - bargains. the past summer has begun an all-out quest to fill our new house with a lifetime's worth of furnishings and accessories, and i'd love to share with you what i find and learn as i comb through the histories of strangers.
oh, and one more thing - you'd be surprised what a few good finds can do to change your life's path. last week i went back to school after 13 years...this time, for interior design. :)
thank you for reading, and i look forward to all the thrifty goodness you all have to share!
