The other day I noticed that shop over near Daisy Point Road which I hadn’t even visited had closed!
I was so glad that they had opened and suddenly they were closed. I guess there wasn’t a lot of business for them.
I really like the idea of re-using things. It makes me feel good to see and touch things that I know were loved by other people. If I have a choice between a brand new living room and a gently used but gorgeous dated set I think I’d tend to choose the older pieces as long as they were well cared for. I’m sure famous furniture makers are glad that I’m part of a small minority.
It isn’t only furniture that appeals to me if it’s used. I also like cookie jars and table cloths and garden statuary and art. I’ve been disheartened all too often after trusting a glowing package blurb. You must know how it is. You think you have something wonderful only to find it’s at best only satisfactory. What a bummer.
With used goods, you can see the items because they are generally loose and unpackaged. What you see is what you get. I have learned to like that.
Anyhow, I was sad to see the consignment store didn’t take off and I hope that something else livens up that corner soon.
