A couple of weeks ago I was at Habitat Restore and found this really great old white mantle. Well I had my car with me and there was no way I was going to be able to take it home. I could have called my husband and told him to bring the truck after work, but I know he would have rolled his eyes at me and tell me to do it tomorrow. (He just doesn't get my fascination for junk.) Our Habitat Restore has a must take with you policy, so I decided I would come back the next day to see if it was still there. Well you can all pretty much figure out, that it wasn't. I have spent the last couple of weeks kicking myself for not buying it.

What amazing junk find have you walked away from, only to kick yourself for not buying it?
