One person's trash...

The old adage is true — well, at least we thought so thanks to our found treasure on yesterday's antiquing voyage.

We have been searching high and low for bargains to fix up our house. Rachel made an awesome find on an antique chair that fits nicely in our living room. We purchased it from the Ozark Antique Mall in Ozark. If you haven't hit up the antique shops in Ozark, you're missing out. Too, you're missing out if you don't visit Ozark's square, which features some shops with an array of home decor sure to please your home.

After shopping the chain stores, we have determined that the same ol', same ol' offered at Furniture Row and Slumberland is OK and standard, but the character of treasures at local, unique shops is like no other. Plus, supporting our local economy is what it's all about, right?

Our next venture is browsing for bargains at The Thicket, a neat shop tucked behind Steak 'n' Shake on Glenstone. The clerk told us he was going to bring out lots of new merchandise later this week after their 60-percent-off Christmas paraphernalia has been sold or put away.
