Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you get the items? Most is from family members' personal estates. Many items have been acquired through generous donations by family/friends, estate sales, garage sales, antique shops, auctions, inventory close-outs, extreme couponing/bargain shopping, and wholesale suppliers.
Amber Lynn (owner/operator) describes,
"It started when helped clean out my grandma's house for renovations. She is 94 years old with a tri-level home she had since the 50's. You can imagine the tremendous amount of treasures! After helping with a garage sale for several days and many items were given free to those in need, there was still a ton left over! My grandma and family understood my financial predicament with my disability and generously gifted me many items to sell. As more friends, family, and neighbors heard about what I was doing, they donated items as well. In addition, I had made connections with people that had to clear out foreclosed homes and so many great finds were given to me that would've ended up in landfills. Personally, I had already accumulated a large collection over the years that I was ready to purge. I continue to build networks with vendors, extreme coupon, and pick up bargains to pass on savings and share fabulous finds!"
