Cute Cubby Shelf and the Close5 new addiction!

Good morning, I hope you all are having a great week!  I am so excited about this post for a few reasons:

1.  I am sharing a great piece I recently became the proud owner of...
2.  I am sharing how I came across it and the details on my new favorite app.

I am warning you right now...if you love to shop flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores, Craigslist, etc. for great deals, you are going to love this app!  I am addicted!

The clever people at Close5 contacted me a few weeks ago and introduced me to their amazing app. I will be the first to admit that I am not "in the know" with the latest and greatest apps but this one sounded pretty great.  Of course, I love my social media apps but other than that, the only apps I really have on my phone are games my daughter plays occasionally when we are out and about! Well once I downloaded the Close5 app, I was hooked! You can download it here: Close5 App Download

This app is so much fun and so simple to use!  You simply create an account and are able to buy and sell items in your area...hello, online marketplace!   You can set your location so that the app will search items within a certain radius of your pick the distance!

I went right to work searching keywords like " vintage", "antique", "industrial", "reclaimed", "shelf", "cubby".....and so on.  I found a few items right off the bat that I thought might work in my home, but the cubby shelf won me over the minute I saw it!

After contacting the seller and letting him know I wanted to purchase the shelf, it was a done deal!  Luckily, this shelf was located roughly 15 miles from my house so I picked it up that day!  It was even better in person...I love it!

Here is the cubby shelf in my home now...

My plan is to hang it up on the wall eventually but I keep moving it around!  I love it in our entryway right now.  It is one of those pieces that I can change up for every season!  These faux, potted plants were the perfect accessories for spring!  And I love the metal hardware on the sides....

Now, here is the only problem, I am on the app ALL OF THE TIME searching for goodies...I actually just bought an antique bed for my daughter's room over the weekend that I found on Close5! You will love it as much as I do! Check it out for to download: Close5 App Download
Make sure and let me know what treasure you come across on Close5!

Thank you, Close5 App, for sponsoring this post and allowing me to share your wonderful app with all my readers!
