The Junk Company… where you can find a hidden treasure

I only stumbled across The Junk Company recently, and have now placed it on my (long) list of places I must visit frequently to check for any new items. Visit their website here.

I can’t explain the feeling I get as I approach an antique shop, or any kind of junk/vintage style shop. It is excitement, anticipation (the feeling you would get the night before Christmas as a child)… I feeling like I am on the verge of a major discovery – quite sad really!

It’s the mystery of the unknown, you never know what is sitting inside the store, and more often than not there is only one of them in there, so you are thrilled when you discover it.

I have completed my Kitchenalia wall [collection of red vintage cooking utensils]

I’ve mentioned in an earlier blog a quirky habit of mine… collecting antique (or they could be better described as ‘vintage’), red cooking utensils.

I had been talking up the great finds I had made over the Christmas break, and have found it necessary to share with you the finished product.

How do you know when you have finished collecting something? Quite simply, when you run out of wall space in the kitchen! I am very happy with the variety I was able to find. There are some rather unique pieces in the collection.

Ta Da…. here it is!
