Nessa

A graduate student with way too much stuff... I visit way too many yard sales, way too many flea markets, and way too many tag sales. I buy way too much. Then, I part with way too little. I like way too many things. It's all good. Besides searching the sales for cool stuff, my I can usually be found sewing, crafting, theatre-ing, or road tripping. :)
