My First Junk Haul 2010







Well it didn't take me long. In between having lunch with my gorgeous girlfriend Jody I squeezed in 6 junk stores and 1 antique centre. I came home with more than a few treasures. Hope you enjoy them.

  28. I have a chest just like that, it was my grandmother's steamer trunk, it's not painted and I don't know if I could bring a brush to it, but after seeing yours I might.
    I'm loving all your new-found treasures, especially the crocheted hangers!
    Enjoy!
    All the best,
    Eileen

  30. The last one, the sea chest, is really nice!

    Here, in Quebec City, there is no many junk stores... The people generally prefer the modern style, now.

    Myself, I love antiquities.
