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 just realized I have this draft saved and never post it. This was the Lampasas city wide yard sale. It was held 3 weeks ago and buying wise was fabulous thanks to the lady below. I went back to her about five times and every time bought a box full of pretties. She was unpacking and I was grabbing. I was curious because the kind of merchandise she got as if she was a dealer going out of business. She told me "just a hoarder/collector getting rid of stuff so I can go and buy some more. Lucky me!

The sale is held in the square Downtown and it is such a pretty city. They have beautiful b&bs and tea rooms. They also have a couple of good antique malls. I remember the days when it seems every old square in little towns will be filled with antique shops. I'm thinking that if the economy keeps going the way it is many of this little towns will just disappeared. So sad...
                                         On to something more positive, my finds.


Can you believe this little matches? Gold tips! I can really said victorians were really eccentric folks.







I have been looking for a figurine with a bishon. I have seen new ones but I wanted an older one, I finally found it.

                       My baby stuff collection. I have a lot at the shop too just to share with kindred spirits.






That is all folks! I found out I was not the only one unable to use blogger for a couple of days which got me thinking that I better save all my pictures to a folder in my computer, I don't think this people are to be trusted with safe keeping them. My blog have been doing all kind of weird things lately so out of paranoia I'm taking precautions. Be blessed, Marta.

OK! I want the buttons, the black baby carriage & the two little china dogs! Hee Hee! Are they for sale in the shop? And please tell me where is the shop now? I'm feeling a shopping trip coming on! How often is that Flea Market you went to? Is it large?

You asked me how old Elle was compared to your JuJu... She was born OCT 23. She is such a cutie & really spoiled rotten!!! Have a great weekend! Charlene
