The thing about thrifting several times a week and then immediately banishing my treasures to boxes in the garage is that I have no freaking clue what I own. So the other day, something possessed me to break out all those boxes and open each and every carefully-wrapped item so I could take inventory. I knew the minute I started, I would immediately regret this hare-brained scheme, but, like most stupid decisions, I was in too deep to quit. Before I knew it, glassware covered every square inch of the dining room table.

Seeing everything all laid out together made me so happy-slash-confirmed my suspicions that I am a hoarder. The best (worst?) part of all is that in the middle of this inventory-taking madness, I went to the gym and stopped by – where else? – the Goodwill on my way back home. I AM ADDICTED. But I promise I have a master plan! Once this whole wedding extravaganza wraps up, I have grand plans of starting a rentals biz so I can share the glassware love with others. Ahem…and have an excuse to keep hoarding.

    We’re the same person. I keep saying the same thing {vintage rental biz} and I can’t help it; I take everything out to look at it periodically.

    A vintage rental biz? That’s so cool!! I have horrible thrift shops and goodwills where I live that really don’t have any vintage pieces. I would so use a service like that so I could rent some vintage pieces for things! =)

    Dude, those gold cups keep making me think of Indiana Jones. You know? The Last Crusade where he has to choose which cup is the Grail? You have chosen…. wisely.
