Yesterday I wrote "So go to yard, tag and garage sales. You might bump into the love of your life as you reach under a table to see what's in the box below, buy an item that launches your dreams for a new career or even get a little black kitten for free."
This morning I read an article about a man who did just that. you can read his story here:
A 50 cent book from a yard sale sent him on a quest of investigation. He's since written a book called "Living Witness: Historic Trees of Texas"to be published by Texas A & M Press. Ralph Yznaga's life took a turn from his inexpensive purchase; I'm not sure if he got a kitten with it, though!
Now I need to get Mr. B. moving. There's a big sale to benefit the Leukemia Society today. Who knows what we'll find?
Have you made a friend, sparked a new interest or had your life change as a result of thrifting?
Until next time,
