Her Savviest Purchase
An authentic Saarinen tulip table for $220
”It’s a superchic midcentury designer piece, incredibly sought after by interior designers and collectors.”

Her Most Macabre Discovery
An animal-carcass carrier
”If you can get past what its former life was, it really did make the most lovely coffee table.”

Her Favorite Bargain
A 1960s sign for the railroad stop in her neighborhood
”Both my kids love it and already fight over who will get it.”
