|Sarah & Jon aka Mr & Mrs "Dump"|
So who are Dumped & Discovered? Here was their reply (I just had to put it down lock stock and barrel cos it put a huge smile to my face :-) )Hi. My name is Sarah ("Hi, Sarah") - and I'm a junk-a-holic. My husband, Jon, is a junk-a-holic too, he just won't admit it. I didn't realize we had this disease until recently. They say that admittance is the first step. So here I am.
I discovered a passion for yard sale, estate sale, and side of the road shopping a few summers ago with my sister in Washington, D.C. We were browsing in an adorable store (that was started by sisters) when the inspiration hit us like a ton of bricks...we knew that this was the beginning of something special. Why? Number 1 - We love shopping!!! Number 2 - We love finding great deals!!!! Number 3 - Both of our homes are ALWAYS in desperate need of a new look.
I am a poor, overworked, underpaid fourth grade teacher (like ALL teachers) that found a hidden talent for bringing new life to old furniture Other than the information on the about me page (which I need to update), people don’t realize that there are actually three of us that make up Dumped and Discovered. Besides me, there’s my husband (Mr. Dump), and my sister (Lola). Mr. Dump does a majority of the heavy lifting and painting, while my sister scores a majority of the furniture we up-cycle (it’s amazing what people throw away in Washington, D.C.)!!!!
So, where does their inspiration come from?
