A month ago I moved to a new country, to a new room and now I'm desperately trying to make it feel like home. Last week I visited Salvation Army flea market and made a great bargain, a pretty little shelf with retro-ish decoration. The price was only 300 Icelandic kronas which is about 3 euros or dollars, in other words: very cheap for such a cute shelf! And what's more, the boxes were full of all kinds of useful and interesting stuff. It was so amazing to go through all that stuff and imagine what kind of person used to own the shelf and why they gave it away with all the stuff inside.
