About Nancy

Hi Welcome to Discarded Diamonds. My name is Nancy and this is my web site. I find the most fabulous things at Goodwill, Salvation Army, Garage Sales and yes, even the trash. I've always been creative and my style has been a bit on the quirky side, so it's a perfect match. I think it's very important to re- use, re-purpose, and recycle. For the fraction of the cost of retail, I have beautiful clothes (that I am always complimented on) and wonderful home decorations. I hope you'll follow me and realize how fun bargain hunting can be. Just be careful, it's addictive.
