Gather. A word encapsulating what “Harv” is all about, and a wonderful phrase to celebrate Harvest Sale #9 in Becker,MN. Throughout the season Pat gathers hidden treasures near and far.

There’s no way I could endure a whole house chalk full of it, however, I am LOVING splashes of a modern old era around our home. Looking for fun ways to make a splash with mid century mod in your pad? Accent with a light fixture, coffee table, or cool geometric decor piece. How about this dresser/chair combo!?   2.)
