When I first started thrifting, that was my favorite part, too. Then, as thrifting and refinishing have become a business, I have enjoyed that part less and less. I have become lazy. Now my favorite thing is when someone emails with something awesome and asks if I want to purchase it from them. Score! No hunting necessary and I have something great to refinish. It's terrible, I know. I'm a disgrace to my kind.
So, I'm curious…are you a hunter? Or are you in the lazy camp with me?
