I found this 1970's radio at a sale on Saturday. I thought it would be perfect for my space at Mod Sonoma. I had written out my tag and was nearly ready to price it when I thought that it was about time to start up Thrift Share Monday again. I'll be writing soon about why I took such a long break from ATG. I placed the radio on top of a newly thrifted shelf unit in my kitchen and took a couple pictures. I stood back from the radio and realized how much I loved it. Next I made the mistake of plugging it in and tuning in to my favorite local radio Y100.9.
When those deep notes poured out from the vintage speaker, I knew I had to keep it. I had paid $20 for the radio and knew that I couldn't ever buy anything as high quality for that price. I sighed, recycled my priced tag and sat down to listen to my new radio. #radiobliss
The decision to keep or sell is something most of us experience on a daily basis. The best benefit of keeping an item is that if we ever change our mind, we most likely still have the option to sell months or years down the line. It's one of the fabulous job perks of being a thrifter.
