Where Has All The Good Junk Gone????

OK, is anyone else having a hard time finding good junk at an affordable price????
The GW has been really sucky....
Photos of estate sales leave me wondering...OK is it worth the drive???
Nothing is catching my eye lately...
Yesterday Mike and I spent the day in Kalama junkin....
First shop....my only treasure was a 1/2 gallon blue canning jar.....
Second shop.....Nothing and wayyyy too expensive.
Third shop....Tall ironstone pitcher....It was 20% off..
Fourth shop.....Nothing and lots of bad junk..
Fifth shop....short ironstone pitcher and everything else...way too expensive.
These shops do not even compare to Monticello.....I am so spoiled.
It is really the best Antique Marketplace around.
So lets all say a chant to the ya ya sisterhood of good junk that we will be blessed in the upcoming weeks with bounds of treasures that are easy to find :)
Have a wonderful week
Julie

OMG...I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!!! Although I will have to say I haven't been anywhere...been home trying to clean and organize and get a blankety blank website started!!! But it is getting harder to find and the ppl that are finding it want a fortune for it!!! Hope things take a turn for you! What show is first on your list for 2011????

I hear ya Julie. Where has all the good junk gone? I don't even go into GW anymore because they sell all their old stuff at an online auction now.

Hope you did great at the christmas show.

See ya soon I hope.

Has anyone tried Glory Days in Springfield? They are a large mall and prices are reasonable. Next time your down that way try it!
