I'm beginning to live like a hoarder. I don't have boxes full of crap that I'll never use but my Montana Avenue apartment is difficult to negotiate anyway. Just last night at 3am I stubbed my toe twice on the legs of mid century modern furniture on the way to bathroom. I've been finding so many cool pieces of furniture at our local thrift stores that I'm building up inventory faster than I can sell it. My problem is that I'm trying to get retail value and eventually I will... if I hold on to these items long enough. Meanwhile I just about need a forklift to stack everything against the walls to be able to make my way around.

Knowing all of that you'd think I'd stop buying stuff long enough to sell what I have but dang it, I just can't resist a bargain. for instance I found this awesome "Dixie" furniture long dresser (6 feet long!) made in the 1950's. It's all walnut (the tree not the nut, lol) and except for the scuffed up top it's in exceptional shape. I've been working on matching the stain so I can sell it for full retail which is about $500-600. I bought it at St. Vincent's for $60. I hesitate to even mention where I got it but maybe if you go there and buy stuff there won't be anything left for me to buy and I'll be able to make my way to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Lol.
