Curbside Shopping Trainee!

My daughter-in-law asked me the other day how I felt about picking up stuff from the curb. You all know what I answered! Best bargains in town!
Seems her sister had called and told her there was a dollhouse on the curb on her street and even tho she wouldn't get it, she thought Tabatha should. By the time Tabatha got there, so many people were out 'shopping' her sister had grabbed it.
She got a wonderful treasure and now I have a huge, fun winter (or 2) project! A 3 story Victorian.
Handmade woodwork.
Beautiful staircase.
Diamond and basement windows.
Bay window
Shake roof.
Fabulous curb appeal!
I'm sure she's hooked on my kind of shopping now!

Oh my goodness, Jean! What a find. It really has so much charm and appeal! You'll have it shining in no time!

Wowie! You certainly did well with this! I love the staircase. It's so real-looking. Such a good find!

Maybe finds for you, but I can't take on projects like this! They would sit around my house so long i would end up throwing them out, lol. I know you can turn it inside out and make a beautiful treasure the girls will pass on to their families!

Wow! I can't believe someone actually left that dollhouse on the curb. I hope you'll show us pictures after you've remodeled it.
