I love to go junkin'

Here are some photos of one of the coolest place to go junkin'. My husband found it a few years ago and I can tell you that it is FULL of stuff in this old peeley house. There are piles outside, inside and everywhere you look. A lot of it is junk but I dig and discover treasures.

We went to several other great places today to find some wonderful things for the store and had the most fun together! I'm going to post a ton of pictures, click to enlarge and enjoy....the last ones are what I ended up with...some things to keep to make more art, drawers, books, vintage millinery flowers etc. But most all other items will be in the store.










What I ended up with:

Dawn, Great finds, I love the millnery flowers and little bisque doll, too cute.
I will have to visit there someday, looks like a really neat place to dig. Can't wait to see the things in the store and what you will do with the things you kept. Glad you had fun!

Egads! That isn't the junk place in Fayetteville, is it? Yikes! You could be chased down by something in that place. Actually, it looks too neat to be that one. Love all of your new treasures. Super finds!

I love places like this!!! It's like rummaging around in Grandma's attic:) I LOVE your Nest assemblage!!!! So very talented Dawn!!! I forgot to tell you the other day that the hutch you painted was fabulous and I never would have known the two pieces were not partners. Awesome! Love, Jamie

Great finds. I have a weakness for hummingbird pictures. I never thought about how many I had until a friend mentioned it ha ha. That tin with soap written on it is too cute! I just love all those details. Don't you find you have to be in the right mood to dig through stuff? Right now it's a little hard with the heat that really gets the musty smell going strong.
Best,
Kathy

Dawn: what wonderful finds. How much are the ironstone butter pats (all). I'm doing a blog on Chris Brown tomorrow; I'm wondering if one of the pics he sent is of your doll head? You'll have to tell me. Please let me know about the pats, Theresa
