super steals

someone else’s trash

is someone else’s treasure

while i was at home, my friend erin and i went to carolina collectables.  erin has the most amazing taste.  she can find random things and make them fit into a space just like that were made to go there.  i was snapping pictures of all the goodies that caught my eye.  i ended up with a wooden vanity chair that i will paint and recover.  erin ended up with this ornate gold frame that was super awesome, both at super awesome prices.
