Junkin' Tour on the 20th...

I love to go Junkin'..... To me a good day of relaxing and doing something that I really enjoy includes stopping at a "hole in the wall" in Timbuktu. I look, move stuff around, always in search for the perfect "charming find" or most instances... multiple "Charming Finds"!!!

As an idea, I thought it would be helpful and FUN to have a Tour of your favorite Junkin' Shops or your latest Junkin' Shop find.... I would love to be able to go to any of the Southeast states in Old Nellie stopping at shops that have already been recommended~

And where better to get my recommendations than here in BlogLand....

You may want to include a photo of the front of the store, address and hours. If you can't include all of that, just let us know the name of the store and the general area of location....Of Course you have to include some photo's of the store itself....

IF THE OWNER does not want you to take pictures of their store, shame on them.....

Explain that you are a blogger and you are going to be featuring their store on your blog for a Junkin' Tour (or maybe say Antique Stores, if you feel they may be offended by the word Junkin') Most of them love the free advertising~And most of all don't forget to include a picture of all of your "Charming Finds" from the day.
Wow... did I purchase all of this for $47.00 . The great thing about it.... I altered one piece (one shoe) and the price tag is $55.00! I purchased this Scrabble Game for $1.50 (I use tiles like crazy in my art).

Bottles will be altered by the end of the month with a $15.00 price tag on them...

Recognize these items from the above picture?

So, don't forget to have your post ready on the 20th of the month for us all to enjoy!

Hint on posting~ Under post options you can go ahead and publish your post before the 20th by putting in the date of 4/20/09 and time. The only thing you will have to do is link me with your blog using MR. LINKY!

Mr. Linky will be waiting on the 20th for you Junkin' Tour!
Just to encourage you to enter~ I will take all of the particpants the next morning and using a random generator, select a winner of a special giveaway!
Look for the giveaway in the next few days.....
