I love to thrift, finding treasures that people have thrown away. The challenge and the quiet time focusing on assembling jigsaw puzzle pieces into a final image has interested and excited me for as long as I can remember. A number of  years ago I noticed that thrift stores almost always have a fully stocked “puzzles and games” section. Finally an endless supply of new puzzles to solve and a reason to keep thrifting!

thepuzzlesivedone is an online collection of jigsaw puzzles, both new and used. Often, when I complete a puzzle, I pass it on to a thrift store or a friend. I realized just recently that I wanted to document and share some of these amazing puzzles with people. Some puzzles have stories and memories attached to them and some do not.
