What a great philosophy. I buy mostly thrifted/vintage clothing and our yellow house is entirely decorated with found objects. It is more fun and less expensive that way. I would love to visit this store! ♥O

Ok, I seriously love places like this!
I'm pretty sure that one of granny's fine antique tables is hiding under that red & blue paint. Did you see the ball & claw feet???
An ANNEX? Are you kidding? A dream come true, I didn't want this post to end!
Therese, we go to the lake in the summer and fly into Reno. I'm making time next trip to go to Junkee!!!
