FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

I see the light at the end of the tunnel

Slowly, VERY SLOWLY, I'm getting there. I'm opening the new shop 2.5 months later than expected. What a process this hole move have been. I think I can survive anything after this. I'm developing a wonder woman complex. We are not getting any younger around here and your body takes the beating. I have all shapes of bruises and I can't feel my toe because I dropped a big piece of furniture on it.  It is worth it. Having to walk 200 feet to work is awesome. We are planning a grand opening by the first weekend of December. There is so much to be done...still. I thought I will show you some pictures of what we have been up to. I hope you enjoy. I love fluffing things up.                                                        
                                          
                                                             THE BLUE ROOM





                                                   Bunnies for Christmas? Why not?



             The big white china cabinet, I thought it was loaded enough, the picture tells a different story.


    I wanted to use the broken chandelier in some kind of way, it looks good in person, it looks like roadkill in the photo.

                                                          Sue, do you remember this one ?






                                             The little snowmen is wearing one of Linda's hats.




                                                       Stuff waiting to be merchandised.






                                                             The ice queen, she needs more bling.

                                                    The classic manger scene.

                                                       The everything silver table.


                                                      I love the traditional red Christmas colors.

                                                                  Just a little bit of pink.
I got about 15 more boxes to merchandise and a porch full of stuff that I got no idea where is going. This body will not be shopping this Christmas. Got to SELL,SELL. More pictures as we made progress. We will be posting pictures in Craiglist under antiques starting next week. I take all prayers, blessings, Marta.

Your shop looks lovely...I want to shop there. I hope your body is healing from all the work you have done to make a dream come true. Bruises come easy to us older ones..I have some I can't explain.

Wish you much success with the new shop
