If you are in Northville, Michigan this summer you should think of stopping over at Repurpose, HGTV's host of Cash & Cari's store housing estate sale finds. If no plans to go to Michigan then you must check out her show which airs on W Network in Canada (or HGTV.com if you live in the U.S.A). She organizes and runs estate sales, often purchasing items which may later be refreshed and resold in her store.
Cash & Cari
Unfortunately they don't have any online episodes if you live in Canada but HGTV.com has several if you live in the U.S.A. (blocked for Canadians of course, darn)
Better yet, check out an Estate sale in person!
I caught a great documentary series on the world financial crisis the other night on CBC. Why I liked it? Our television is usually so focussed on the trouble in the U.S. economy we forget that other countries have gotten themselves into trouble as well. Very eye opening.
The full series is available online to watch.
