Rurality Newsletter - All Rustic News Q&A

Now is the best time of year to go to flea markets, yard sales, and estate sales. You can find all kinds of treasures there.

June 15 2022

I shop at antique or junk shops, or at the thrift store. I look for unique glass containers, or rustic stuff that can be planted with hardy succulents.

It's important to have a goal in mind, otherwise you're just going after all the shiny objects. Have a few things that you're looking for, and try not to get side tracked by everything else. So for instance, if you're looking for clothing for a particular purpose, concentrate on that. If possible.

These are a few of my my-favorite-thrift-store-finds.html . Which is your favorite?

I plan on moving sometime this year, so finding new homes for all my treasures has been ongoing. One thing I don't want to leave behind is my collection of plants - but how do I pack those into a shipping container or Uhaul to get them across the country?

Here's the plan; I'm in contact with some avid gardeners in the area I'll be moving to, and finding someone with a spare bit of garden space who can 'babysit' my Sempervivum and Sedum collections for a while, in exchange for some of the duplicates. I'll be drying the Sempervivum out, packing them in a box, and mailing them to Nova Scotia. The Sedum cuttings will go the same way. Wish me luck!
