Where's Everybody From?

des_arc_ya_yaOctober 12, 2004

This may be OT, but I've been wondering where all of our posters and lurkers are from. It'd be nice to get together sometime and share projects and photos, wouldn't it?

I'm from northcentral Arkansas.

Next?

Hi All,
I'm from..Abilene, Texas...but transplanted to Melbourne, Fl. in 1989.
Yes, we're now referred to as the HURRICANE State, and so far have "survived'em all"! I do love Fl. but not this season. I know several of you folks live here, too! Lot's of treasures in Brevard County...but somehow I've not gotten in the mood to do much treasure hunting...yet???

I'm from Belvidere in northeasten North Carolina. One hour west of the Outer Banks, and 45 minutes south of Norfolk. I live in a very rural part of our county. To get to any "civilization" we have to drive at least 25 minutes. That means schools, grocery store or a small type mall. We can't even see our next door neighbors! Our claim to fame was Wolfman Jack lived and died in Belvidere, and Jimmy "Catfish" Hunter a famous baseball player also lived and died in our county.

I'm from Macomb Township in southeast Michigan. Very big boating area. We have two boats and a cottage on a nearby island, where we spend most of the summer. Lots of curbside finds and some resale/consignment shops around here. Some of the TS are getting pricey, though. I love to hunt for treasures, if anyone wants to join me.

country living is my pie.i live in a town that is dying a slow death .we are losing our industry and being sucked dry by america,s largest fleecing . a global transpark which signifies nothing but a buyout of our good farmland and uping our taxes .which has shown us nothing for 10 yrs.

the Village of Wrightstown, PA. smack in the middle of colonial history- the guy who owns the ice cream shop two towns over plays George Washington in the annual christmas 'Crossing' of the delaware river :)

it's the seat of the local grange association, and we didn't get a traffic light at the 5-point intersection until 1994...and 30 years ago, it was the 'cow country' that is sounds like.

now? I like to joke that Levittown's taken over most of the county, with the houses getting bigger every year- but without the quality getting any better.

I'm in Oakland county, and the only one I like here is called "Yankee" something in Farmington. It's basically just used furniture.

I recently got a bigger vehicle, so getting things home is not the problem it used to be.

Hey Carofl93, I just moved to your small town of Crestview. We are building a house over around Indian Trails. I think we are really going to love it here, it is like living in the country, but your still near all of the beaches! We moved here from Port Charlotte Florida, north of Ft. Myers, south of Sarasota. We lived there for over 25 years, and we moved to Crestview to be near my brother who got out of the Air Force a few years a go and now works for Boeing.

Nice to meet you neighbor!

I'm another "Ohio Buckeye" lurker. I live in the heart of Amish Country, about 15 miles west of the Hall of Fame.
You folks are so creative. I just love coming here to see all of your treasures and what you do with them.

Hi all, I was just breezing through (looking for some craft ideas) and saw this thread. I was starting to feel lonely. Thought I was the only one in California. I'm also in the San Jauquin valley (Stanislaus Co.) I've only been out here for three years. I was raised in the San Francisco Bay area and then spent 9+ years in the Santa Cruz Mnts, nine miles in from the Monterey Bay. I'm now about 90 miles from the Monterey Bay and 90 miles from Yosemite. Not too bad.

:o)

Used to be London, Ontario, Canada, now live a few miles out, as I moved to my old step-Uncle's farm after he died a couple of years ago and the new owner didn't want the house.

I do the kerb krawl at times, but don't usually alter the stuff much (not much talent, I guess).

Picked up a bunch of kids clothing along the median of a freeway a while ago, donated it to a support group for struggling families.

Have a great New Year, all.

Hey Des Arc Ya Ya
Another Arkansas junker here. Judging from your username--I live close to your neck of the woods. I live near the Jackson/White County line. Have several friends from your area. I really enjoyed reading where everybody was from.
Also enjoyed the post on new uses for old items. It gave me lots of ideas for my yard sale finds.

Looks like I'm only the 3rd Oregonian.
I'm near Eugene, OR, but rural.

45 minutes to the beach (takes me 20 to drive to work...maybe I should turn the other way next time and go play instead), 60 minutes to the Cascade Mountains, 120 minutes to high desert.
