A Visit to ~*LuCkY JuNk*~ Arlington Heights, IL...


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! 
ViNtaGe F*I*N*D...
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!!!
