Thrifting Finds #79: There has been a truly disturbing lack of


I was reminded this morning of how long it's been since I blogged.  My last post was at the beginning of February, fercryingoutloud.  What possible excuse could I have?

A couple, actually.

First, I have found nothing--nothing!--at any of the thrifts since the beginning of February.  This has got to be the longest dry spell I can remember.  And it's really quite tragic, because I need all kinds of stuff--light fixtures, furniture, etc., because

Fondue Headquarters is moving!

Yep, we've decided to re-enter the world of crushing debt and buy ourselves a new house.  I didn't want to say anything before, because we don't actually close until next week (fingers crossed!), but we're getting close enough that it's kind of hard to keep secret any more.

Anyone who has been through this process before realizes that it just sucks up all of your time.  I have zero memory of buying my last house eleven years ago, but I think I'd remember if it were as complicated as it is now.


Hopefully, I'll be able to show you some before-and-after pictures soon, but I'm guessing for a while that this blog will be more about moving and redecorating than it will about really awesome thrift finds.  Is that okay with you guys?  I hate to get you all used to one thing and then switch tracks all of a sudden.

And with any luck, there will be some awesome thrift finds, because the law of averages pretty much says so.  This dry spell can't go on forever!

Thanks for sticking with me.  There's more to come!
