Habitat for Humanity warehouse sale.

Daniel and I were driving to the post thrift store the other day (which we found out is only open 2 days a week for only 5 hours..lol), and we saw a sign for a warehouse sale. Curious, we followed the signs and saw that it was a Habitat for Humanity sale. Apparently, they take the stuff that they take out of old houses and sale it at their warehouse. AWESOME, right?! I figured that this would be the perfect place to find shelves for my scraproom or even some things that I could turn in to craft projects! I was sooo excited! Turns out, we made it just in time because they were about to close. That made it even better, because everyone that goes to these types of sales knows that at the end of the day the seller is wayyy more likely to bargain with you. And EVEN BETTER than that is that they have this sale once a month! WOO!!

Anyways, in the first little section we found a desk (well, actually 2 exactly alike). The moment I saw it, I knew it was perfect. If life were a movie, the desk would be glowing and angels would be singing! LOL! It was originally priced at $75, but had been marked down through the day. When we got there, it was $30. I sent Daniel, the alpha male, to bargain with the guy and we ended up taking it home for $20! I know that it needs a new paint job and some TLC, but for now I'm using it. I figured that when we get to our next duty station (where we will be buying a house!!!!!), I will finally get to decorate my scraproom the way I want, and will paint it then.

So here's my new and improved scrapping area!

And here's the other side, still a little cluttered from all of the rearranging I've been doing.

Not to be outdone, Jonah just HAD to have his own little desk too ;)

So I encourage you all to see if your local Habitat for Humanity chapter has these awesome warehouse sales!!
