Lucky Junk

While visiting my family in the burbs of Chicago, I had a meet up with some fabulous bloggers. We met for breakfast and then went to the cutest shop in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  Oh please, if you get the chance, please visit this charming shop, loaded with charm, personality, creativity, unique vintage and artisinal good.  I will show you what I bought in my Christmas Tour post but now let's look at some photos of the best little shop!





So much to see!!


Isn't this the cutest thing?   Use it to store your holiday cards in is just one way to use it.  Put it in the bath to store extra tp.  Endless uses for this.  If the airlines weren't so strict these days, it would  have come home with me. :)  Bah humbug!


I have seen lots of deer around this season, but none as cute as this.


 I love vintage candles.....so so cute.  Displayed on this rusty forest green tray with antlers, it makes the sweetest vignette.



Another charming display.....stars of all kinds hanging from an old bed spring


You can never have too many angel wings and I will never get tired of the beautiful old dress forms.  There was a sign in the shop that said " Feathers are reminders that angels are always near."   I like that.....don't you?

 Me you know.....but that other pretty lady is Janet, the owner of this delightful shop and all its goodness.  Thank you Janet for allowing me to "crash" your shop and anyone out there that lives close by, please visit Janet's shop, LUCKY JUNK.  I promise, you will love it.

Can you believe that Lucky Junk is only a 40 min. drive from my house and yet I've never been there?! I will definitely make a point to visit in the new year. :-)

What a fabulous shop!!! I especially loved the olden dress form with the angel wings and the bit of burlap! I thought it was exquisitely done! Looking forward to seeing what you purchased!

The way airline travel has curtailed what you can and cannot do has really put a dent in our shopping, hasn't it? Makes me want to just take all those troublesome people who got things this way in the first place and kick 'em!!! I've had to leave countless items behind because of those new rules. It really bugs me! Sorry you had to leave the post box behind. It was really cute!

I love the old dress form! I have a small collection of dress forms, and this one would be a most welcome addition to the fold!

Cute pic with you and the shop owner! I'm glad you enjoyed your junket!
