Have you seen the Marketplace on Facebook?
I am hooked on it.
Hi, my name is Mary Lou, and I'm a Marketplace Junk Junkie.
I think the Marketplace is part of the last FB updates. Either that, or the new 'droid hijacked me.
On your FB page there's a house. Click on it and you find a virtual garage sale. Depending on the market, and time of day, the junk you're selling can be seen by hundreds of people in minutes. And you can see the junk hundreds of others are selling. I've gone over the deep end in my purchases.
Tonight I bought a singing Chantal copper tea kettle (retails for $160) for $5.
It's tarnished, and it may never return to its former glory, but I love the lines, and frankly, it's cleaning up real nice--with just a salt and lemon juice scrub. And by "scrub," I mean I've barely rubbed it.
The girl selling the tea kettle, said it "just needs some paint." Yikes!! I knew I had to rescue it right then and there. Paint is wonderful stuff, but it's not the fix for everything.
I haven't even come close to finishing cleaning it, but it's past my bedtime, so I'll post this and then pop into bed for a few hours. I'll post the final results in a day or so (photos are on my FB page).
If I can stay off the Market Place long enough.
