Let it be known, from this day forward, that I have the ability to blog while sitting in the dentist’s waiting room.

I had to. I had no choice.

Somehow I neglected to show you photos of Time Worn Interiors’ space at Marburger. There are only a couple of photos, but they need to be seen. I realize that last photo has nothing to do with junking. It’s simply some Collective Soul eye candy. Enjoy!


Ready, set

25 Mar


On my way to the big show! All-in-all, I’ll be spending six days in the fields.

Hot tomorrow. Possible rain Wednesday. Chilly Thursday. Looks like a typical antiques week weather mix!

Stay tuned for some “real time” posts over the next week. If all goes as planned {fingers crossed} this blog will look more like a twitter account than a blog, putting you smack dab in the middle of all the action.  I’m planning a test run tomorrow …

Hope to see you in the fields!

Finally, a full trunk…

8 Mar

It seems like it has been ages since my trunk was full of decent junk. I hit a sale Friday that was really junky.  Quite awesome, in fact. Unfortunately, the early birds got the two pieces I really wanted — a child’s desk with cubbies and a child’s formica-topped table with vinyl chairs. Both pieces were red and white. {Suddenly I’m reverting back to loving my high school colors!}

But my haul was okay, considering my tardiness:

And the flea market didn’t disappoint:

Almost the entire display above was picked up Sunday morning. The medicine cabinet was too cute to pass up. I love its color, and it has pink wooden shelves behind that perfectly crackled mirror. The bottles sitting on top of the cabinet were a steal. I bought them from a vendor who KNOWS all he has to do is say, “if you buy all of them, I’ll give you a great price.” He has me pegged.  The book you see wedged under the little stool is a LEDGER. But for some reason, someone went through and marked through all the drool-worthy pen-and-ink entries with a ballpoint pen {blue ink. whatever}. STILL … the cover is amazing. And there are a few undisturbed pages within:

What do you think?

That’s all the blogging I can do today! It’s like pulling teeth to get these photos uploaded. My email is still a bit wonky, I think. So if you’ve sent me mail, and I haven’t responded, please forgive me. I’m doing the best I can. And let me know. Maybe try mailing to checkeredpastinfo@sbcglobal.net.

Oh! But one more thing {two, actually} … I got my Marburger Farm VIB card in the mail yesterday. I’ll be there Wednesday, March 30, to pick up my credentials and SWAG and to shop and visit with some of the nicest and most talented dealers around. So I may be doing a number of  “live” pictures-only posts from the show that day.  

AND last night, I logged on to Facebook only to discover Amy at JunkologIE had spotlighted my blog here.

Thanks so much for the blog love, Amy!

It’s all good!

Are you a VIB?
