. . . is virtually non-existent! Oh, there are a couple of 'antique' shops within a 60 mile radius but I would call them more 'garage-sale' places. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, I'm constantly amazed at the treasures you all find at garage sales. Blows my mind. The garage sales around here are mainly kid's clothes and toys. There are actual 'antique' stores about 2 hours away but I don't get there very often. And they don't usually carry the jumble of odds and ends that I crave.
That is why I get all tickled-pink, googly-eyed and jumping-for-joy crazy when I get to visit Cammie of Daffadowndilly's. She has got a little bit (okay, alot) of everything! She is a junker extraordinaire! She finds secret stashes of the best junk ever! She is a purveyor of wonderful ideas and items for Minnesota's Bachman House! She is a Junk Bonanza original (I think) and is one of Ki's best buds! Her photo is in the newest Flea Market Style magazine cuz she knows her junk! I could have gotten her autograph in my mag but forgot it. Next time Cammie!
Anyhoo, look at these photos and drool, all you who love junk! And try to pick out the things I brought home with me.
This little stool is famous and was the center of attention on page 69 of Flea Market Style magazine. I think it will be attending my daughter's wedding!
Cammie even allowed us to visit her inner sanctum where the creativity happens!
So Cammie, if you are reading this, CALL ME when you are working around the shop! I need to spend days in your shop so I can dig in every box, move things around to see what is on each shelf, and to pick your junk-lovin brain! I may just move in for a week! Sleeping amongst the beauty of cast offs - what could be better!
