I Brake for Yard Sales: And Flea Markets, Thrift Shops, Auctions, and the Occasional Dumpsterby Lara Spencer
Synopses & Reviews
Good Morning America correspondent Lara Spencer is a self-confessed frugalista with a passion for shopping at yard sales, thrift shops, and estate sales, and for decorating her home and friends homes with her fabulous finds. In I Brake for Yard Sales, Lara shares her secrets for bargain hunting and tells you where to shop, what to look for, how to pay for it, how to restore it, and finally, where to put it in your house. Looking for the newest arrivals at your local thrift shops? After busy Saturdays and no-pick-up Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are generally the best days to shop for fresh items. Peppered with wisdom from world-renowned appraisers whom Lara knows from her previous work on Antiques Roadshow as well as contributions from well-known designers, this book also features the house of comedienne and good friend Kathy Griffin, which Spencer herself refurbished and decorated.
Featuring more than 100 innovative furniture flips for every room in the house, this is a must-have guide for those looking to save money, live greener, and create unique pieces that showcase individual style. The projects can all be made in no more than a weekend and with minimal tools and skills, so projects are accessible for everyone!
