What's your favorite resource for your home?

Any resale shop in Chicago, but more specifically, the Salvation Army. Village Thrift and the Brown Elephant have also yielded several nice surprises. Everything in my apartment, save the couch and a bookshelf, is secondhand.

What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?

Everything on the walls. They all have special value to me, whether it was a painting in my grandmother's house or a aerial photograph that used to hang in my elementary school library.
