 . . . at home with the boys

This great chandelier came from New Orleans . . . love the french influence! Some of our best finds came from Warrenton where you'll have access to treasures from around the country and around the world!       We can't wait!!

My favorite  white rusty birdcage . . . now, what to put inside? . . . hmmmmm! maybe a crystal chandelier!

Crusty rusty architecturals are a must . . . EXTREME PATINA!!

 Thanks for sharing our visions!   HAPPY WHITE WEDNESDAY!          HAPPY JUNKIN!!

T*G*I*R* (Thank God It's RUSTY!)

It's Friday . . . and although it's been wet and nasty we managed to bring in more goodies to the boutique!
Our CHIPPY BABY has a place of honor high atop our tower of JUNK!

RUST is like gold to us . . . you just can't duplicate what time and nature has created!  We're not the only ones who feel this way 'cause we sell MUCHO RUSTO!

I guess if we weren't so darn CURIOUS we'd be known as the RUSTY BOYS !!     Have a great weekend & HAPPY JUNKIN!                           Hope your weather is better than ours!

Shopping with the BOYS

   We brought FRESH JUNK to the shop yesterday. . . wouldn't this bunch of crusty garden art make a great valentine bouquet ?  (who needs roses!)

Tarnished silverplate is one of our top sellers . . . Jesus went home with someone Sunday !

Speaking of Jesus . . . religious icons are very popular in the shop . . . we just brought this awesome statue in !

Our most requested items are architectural salvage and garden furniture
