I love the things I find at auctions, these are from 3 boxes of thread I bought for 10$.
Part of a collection of beer coasters found in a box at my work.
In terms of your things, what does your space (studio/office/orliving area) look like? please describe.
My space is small and as cluttered as i can make it without it being messy. Being in a state of perma-renovation for almost three years I don’t really know what my space will end up being. An amalgalm of found objects, collected art works, plants and family heirlooms, I doubt my space will ever be a fixed point in the space/time continuum.
Where do you normally get your things?
Having spent the last thirteen years working in a second furniture store most of my collection comes from the flotsam and jetsam of other peoples lives.
What is your prize possession/”thing”/collectible/tool?
My most prized possession is a my mom’s old cast frying pan.

Today marks the official 1 year mark of the blog. 365 days. What an incredible process it has been.
four for the day began on November 26th, 2010. After a few short weeks of posting my collections to the blog and some positive criticism I decided that four for the day could and should really be brought to life not only by me but through an open call for contributions and a cast of invited collectors, organizers, hoarders, and lovers of stuff. The guest editors quickly signed up and were pencilled in. At that point I decided to start the count again from the beginning with Alison Sommers on January 3rd, 2011 – day 39, but to not compromise the already posted days of collections.
It has been an amazing year so far but we still have 39 more days to go.
Enjoy the remaining days and thanks for coming by and appreciating the beautiful collections of our past, present, and future editors.
