I spent an hour or so yesterday talking to people at this year's Farm Chicks show. If you have a hankering to walk around in petticoats and cowboy boots and like the idea of decorating with vintage junk- the shabbier the better - the annual...

Put away that list of spring chores. Forget about cleaning out the garage and tidying up the basement. It's time to go out and play. And by that I mean out to Chattaroy for the Spring Funky Junk sale. The sale is going on this...

Our list of Saturday errands took us out to Big R in Spokane Valley. Always the opportunist, I took advantage of the fact that we were in the neighborhood to make a quick stop at three side-by-side shops on Trent. I peeked into All That...

You could spend the weekend cleaning out the garage, putting away the snow shovel and doing all those early spring chores that need to be done. Or, you could poke around in someone else's garage and find a treasure to bring home. Easy choice, right?...

There are finds and then there are the finds you find all over again. In 2006, I was invited by a Treasure Hunting reader to join her for a day of antiquing. I met her at Apple Annie Antique Gallery in Cashmere, Washington and joined...
