I marveled at the creativity of proprietor Sharleen Reeder and the way she took garage sale and thrift store discoveries and re-fashioned them into true treasures.
And so impressed was I with her skill and wit that I included her work in the pages of The Find, even though this amazing photograph of Sharleen by Bob Greenspan did not.
Here are some photos of items I took on my first visit to Sharleen's amazing shop. And every time I gaze at them I'm reminded of Sharleen's magic touch that breathes new life in the discarded.
A sugar bowl that had flipped its lid was sweetly transformed into a whimsical pin cushion;
Broken pieces of blue-and-white pottery were fashioned into a lofty birdhouse;
A jumble of mix-and-match flatware is set with an odd china plate for a door chime;
And a pair of silver spoons serves up new service as witty window accessories.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
