Abstract:

Good Morning America co-anchor Lara Spencer is a life-long yard saler. She grew up happily following her mom to garage sales, auctions, flea markets, and thrift stores, and on the way, learned what to look for and how to turn those second-hand finds into stylish interior design. For Spencer, a former host of Antiques Roadshow, "junque" hunting is more than a hobby. She moonlights as an antiques dealer and interior designer, and clients often can't believe the down-and-dirty provenance of each treasure. Spencer also explains how to rescue, recycle, and reinvent secondhand items and details the simple fixes that turn someone else's trash into your instant heirloom.--From publisher description.
