Nicole is a Junkie
I am a junkie. Yes, that's right... I am addicted to JUNK! I love a good wheel and deal yard sale or a dig for deals thrift store. And as morbid as it sounds - I especially delight in an estate sale.
There is something romantic to me about owning an object that had a life before me. This romanticism started with buying used books as a broke literature major in college. I loved to find an old dog eared page or an underlined passage - it had a history and was cherished by someone at sometime. Maybe it was their favorite book that they read over and over again. Maybe the underlined passage inspired them to feel or do something they wouldn't have before. It was special to someone at sometime, and now it is special to me.
