Meet the Dumps

Hi.   My name is Sarah ("Hi, Sarah") - and I'm a junk-a-holic.  My husband, Jon, is a junk-a-holic too, he just won't admit it.  I didn't realize we had this disease until recently.  They say that admittance is the first step.  So here I am.

I discovered a passion for yard sale, estate sale, and side of the road shopping a few summers ago with my sister in Washington, D.C.  We were browsing in an adorable store (that was started by sisters) when the inspiration hit us like a ton of bricks...we knew that this was the beginning of something special.  Why?   Number 1 - We love shopping!!!  Number 2 - We love finding great deals!!!!  Number 3 - Both of our homes are ALWAYS in desperate need of a new look.

I am a poor, overworked, underpaid fourth grade teacher (like ALL teachers) that found a hidden talent for bringing new life to old furniture.
