LISTEN to Lise's sister Margaret describe Lise's various thrift store collections.
SEE a slide show of Lise's home gallery.
Lise lives in a lovely old Victorian twin house which is set among the greenery of the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. She has a thriving garden and a second-hand hound named Eureka. Her house is filled with fabulous things from jeweled insects trapped under glass to many pairs of shoe trees. Most of her stuff was found at yard sales, estate sales and the occasional dumpster dive. She has many collections and many individual treasures. And, there’s still room for more. . . .
