8500 Square Feet of Goodness

Over the Christmas holiday, my fabulous Sister-in-Law (who I don't spend nearly enough time with) and I had the opportunity
to go to Ann Arbor to check out

It was gooooood!

Open since 1960, The Treasure Mart has been committed to reuse, recycling and repurposing. The constantly changing inventory of gently used merchandise includes beautiful antiques, nostalgic collectibles, a wide variety of useful household items. They sell everything on consignment which means money spent at this store will go back into the hands of the local community.

I love that.

Another interesting feature of shopping at The Treasure Mart is the monthly price reduction on all items priced at $5.00 or more.
An item that has been in the store for a month from the date on the ticket is 10% off, 2 months 20% off, 3 months 30%, etc.
This ensures quick turnover and great deals!

While wandering around the three floors and 8500 square feet of "packed to the rafters" goodness, we came across this little beauty for $75.00.
I had to have it.

And now, I can't get this image out of my head...
Is it too crazy or should I be like Nike and
"Just Do It"??

I know it's only paint, but I'm a committment phobe... hahaha!!!
I'd love to hear your ideas!
