the one that got away

Sorry this is late...I have been antiquing in KY all day...and to say I'm exhausted is an understatement.  So have you ever heard the quote "you are more likely to regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did?"  Well I am starting to thing this is the store of my phone's photo album!  Of the 34537890 photos I have about 60% of them are furniture and home decor things that I see and like enough to take a picture of.  A majority of those are finds that are great deals yet I think I do not have a current need for, if I wait it will go down in price, etc.  Well do you ever have buyer regret?  Like where you always think about the one thing that got away?  I have several!  Here is a round up of some of my phone pics of great things missed!!!

 How cool are these extra long x benches...not so much the upholstery...but that's an easy change!

This one still gets to me...It is still currently in the thrift store?! huh?!...yes...I was informed it was not for sale because they decided to keep it because "its adds to the aesthetic of the book department"...in the THRIFT STORE...is this allowed?!?!  Wouldn't it be so cool reupholstered with two large bolsters replacing all those puny little pillows!

Here is a find from today...that I am determined to use in a project at some point...its just amazing!

And then there are the pictures of some of the random "junk" you sometimes have to dig though to find the real "treasure"...(this is from my first trip to the worlds longest yard sale!)

So what are some of your finds that got away?!?! You know you have some!
