Thrifters always have a dramatic story about an incredible find. I have tons of them, including the time I followed a woman around the store to see if she was going to put a pair of shoes back and once forgoing the restroom to grab a sequined skirt off the new arrivals rack. This ladder shelf was no exception. I spotted this shelf at our last Thrift Night Out at Goodwill on Waterloo before class started and was immediately drawn to it. I loved the bamboo feel and although I'm not sure if it's real wood, I loved how sturdy and earthy it looks. I peeled the ticket off the shelf and handed it to the cashier to pay for it after class. It was $15 and I had a 35% coupon so there was no question about buying it. When it came time to load it into my car, it was missing. I panicked and searched all around the store for the person who had my ladder and thankfully bumped into a woman who was carrying it around. Then we fist fought over it. Just kidding, she kindly handed it over.
I have been hooked on decorating with greenery lately. Succulents, houseplants, fake plants...you name it. If it's green and leafy, I want it.
