OMG!!! ~ OMG!!!
For the LoVe of ViNtaGe FiNds
Chippy... Rusty... Crusty... **In As-Found Condition**
Owner Janet McCarthy of
~* LucKy JuNk *~
REALLY NAILS IT!!!
I was first drawn to Janet's keen eye for Time~Worn ViNtaGe FiNds some years back while shopping an Antique Mall she had a booth space in... I was just trilled that someone else had an "EYE" & Appreciation for Naturally Time~Worn SHaBBies like I do...
This past Friday, while On-The-Hunt, I found
myself near HER Store **LuCky JuNk**
~ located in Arlington Heights, Illinois...
HONESTLY, No pictures I have ever seen, or the ones I took,
can depict how Over-The-Top Fab this Store Is!*!*!
YOU NEED TO VISIT TO **EXPERIENCE THE SPACE**
Although it's obvious that Janet's main passion is her
naturally time~worn vintage finds, she is a smart
business woman, appealing to many people's styles...
A Line of Chalk Paint, Local Artist Creations, along
with hosting various Workshops are her key to success!!!
Of Course I Netted aChiPPy!-SHaBBy!
LoVe my Zinc Bottom Tray w/chippy-white wood edges!*!*!
Although it's quite a trek for me to get to her shop,
I most certainly will make the effort ~ especially when Janet changes out her look for the Christmas HoLiDays!*!*!
I sooooo enjoyed my visit!!!
