I’m so happy it’s thrifting season again! Finding a bargain is one of my greatest joys, because I know what I’m purchasing is usually about one-tenth of the original cost.

Last season one of my $20 unique finds was an antique side table that fold ups. Our friend, Stephen, gave us the history behind these campaign tables, which were used during military campaigns.


I have a new-found appreciation for my bargain, musty-smell and all. It works perfectly as an overflow table for serving pieces and water pitchers.

It’s interesting to share the history behind yard sale finds or bargains at dinner parties! It creates unique conversation, and you never know what you’ll learn!

I’d love to hear about your most recent find? Or, do you have something in mind you’ll be looking for this coming yard sale season?
