My sister is great at finding deals. Well, they are deals to her, not to everyone. I would rather order things online and have them show up at the door. She will scour the stores and even flea markets to find the best deal possible. She also has an eye for the possibilities in something and loves making something old new again. Last year she took her husband on “vacation” to an Upstate town that featured one of the biggest flea markets in the country. I am sure that he did not see it as relaxing, especially when she purchased so much that they needed to rent a truck to bring it back home. One of her finds was an old wood burning furnace that she wanted to hook up in the detached garage. It was in pretty rough shape but the saving grace was that the firebox and vents were in great shape. The design was old world and she knew it would look great once it was restored. It would take some elbow grease to get the rust and old enamel paint off the exterior but once it was done it would not only heat the garage but blend in perfectly with her husbands workshop. The other plus was that it wouldn’t add anything to their utility bills. Having a heat source that didn’t cost anything, for the most part, to run was a definite plus. I sometimes wish I had her talent for finding a deal or the patience it takes to shop for them. I would be farther ahead in life and have more money in my savings account.
