Almost antique

Today I went to Århus to meet a friend of mine. On my way I passed these old, almost antique, sofas in the street. Some young people were renovating a shabby old nightclub/bar and what the furniture and things they didn´t want to keep was placed outside in a container and on the pavement together with a piece of paper: please, help yourself, take it if you want it. Of course I looked carefully in the container, and found a couple of archive boxes – but the rest wasn´t no good. Except for the sofas, maybe… wish I had had a van – and a bigger house…

    I just viewed your art money on etsy! I am actually an art money artist as well although I haven’t contributed much lately. Thanks for taking time to get the word out – would be fun to see many others join! Just took a trip down to Copenhagen from Norway a month ago and was so jealous of all the fantastic Saturday flea markets and antique stores with furniture half the price as it is here! Next time, I will be coming down with a trailer on the back of my car!
    Thanks for sharing, I will be watching for more money! ha det bra, Erika Tysse
