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!

The shop

Some photos of the shop before the big show. Today is all mostly gone.



 This French table set is the one thing I'm most proud of. It was so much work but the final result was worth it.

 The farm table was a pain in the....I have to completely strip that top and it took me 2 days. I rather paint over stuff. I gave it away, I hope they enjoy it.










      Oh boy did we worked hard getting the shop to look nice. I collected, gathered, made, crafted,bought, hoarded as many new items as I could for the sale. I got to enjoy the final product for a day, that was it, all that work. It is such a funny thing, you want to sell, sell, but at the same time wish you get to enjoy it for a while longer. Tomorrow I'm coming to a dismantled shop, totally. I got pieces left over in storage and thought that will give me a little break and then...a dealer from Arlington came and bought me out. Sooo, back to start from scracht we go. Don't get me wrong, Thank you God for this. I leave you with some shots of the shop. Hope you enjoy!.
