Transforming lack-luster items into conversation pieces, Tabitha Patience Duncan loves a good bargain hunt. “I enjoy repurposing items I find at yard sales. It’s fun to take things that are no longer needed and transform them into something useful and beautiful,” she said. “People say my house is welcoming and that it feels like home to them. Hearing that makes me feel good.” A babysitter for 22 years, the former Kossuth High School student knows how to make a buck stretch. “Refurbishing can save a ton of money. I sometimes resale my finds, but often keep them,” said the Corinth native. Married to Wayne Duncan, Jr. since May 4, 2015, Tabitha is the mother of Tanner Montgomery, 18, and Cadin Roach,13, and, the step-mother of Cameron Duncan, 12, and Katlyn Duncan, 6.
