10 rules for salvage sisters


1. when in doubt, don't throw it out.

2. rust is a variation of red; red is always an acceptable color.

3. never be the early bird at a yard sale. the real possibilites are in the rubble.

4. never sell among yourselves; trade only. (it keeps that sisterly love alive.)

5. broken? all the better. imperfect is perfect.


6. don't look at it for what it is, but for what it could be.

7. it's about the eureka! moment, not he thing itself.

8. make the recycling bin your first stop for art supplies.

9. hunt, find, and tell. no secret sources.

10. never worry about how to get it home; just get it.

I'm especially fond of number 10.... there have been many a time when we've had tall items hanging out the sunroof! ;)
