Addicted to Decorating

You know who you are

Stand up and be proud

If you're addicted to decorating

Shout your name out real loud.

You wait for the mailman

In hopes he'll come soon.

Please bring a new magazine

With gorgeous new rooms.

Your evening's complete;

"Let me just read in peace".

Lock the door to the bedroom.

Don't let THEM find the keys.

You watch HGTV

From morning till night.

Do we need all those channels?

When that ONE seems just right.

You rearrange furniture

All day in your head.

And you can't seem to stop it;

Not even in bed.

Your magazines date back...

10 years and some longer;

Cause you've dog-eared a page;

To read again in the future.

You carry your paint chips,

Tape measure & swatches

So you'll always be ready

To create special touches.

Your ultimate vacation...

Where shopping's a must.

Who needs sandy beaches?

If it rains.that's a plus.

If one of these statements

Sound familiar to you.

You're addicted to decorating;

That's ok...we are too.

So take the inspiration

You've been collecting for years:

Let's apply it to your home

And erase all your fears.

10 Reasons 2 Buy Antiques

1. Save money. Really live better.

Antiques are often reasonably priced and can be found in any price range.

2. Buying local does not just apply to tomatoes and kohlrabi.

When you buy an antique, you are supporting a small, locally owned business.

3. George Washington did not sit in your La-Z-Boy.

Antiques are tangible pieces of history.

4. There is no such thing as a McBlanket Chest.

Antiques are unique and offer nearly endless variety.

5. 100% post-consumer content.

Antiques are the most environmentally responsible choice for home decorating.

6. There are enough ten-year-old futons on Craig’s List.

Antiques retain significant resale value.

7. No allen wrench required.

Antiques offer solid, quality construction, and durability.

8. Industrial cable spools and pilfered milk crates do not

constitute a living room suite.

Antiques are stylish, and can accommodate anyone’s decorating tastes.

9. Forty cents per hour was a fair wage in 1940, not 2010.

Antiques are socially responsible—none are made in sweatshops.

10. If it’s not French, it’s crap!

Antiques can be a source of ancestral or regional pride.
