Junkin’….with my girls. {personal}

My mom is not a hoarder. Just don’t ask my dad about it. She’s a “collector”, of large pieces of furniture. And thousands of other, very cool, sometimes strange, often broken antiques. (I swear I NEVER had a chest of drawers that actually slid out nicely. Or closed, for that matter. Growing up all my furniture was at least 100 years old and never worked. Just looked pretty.)

So, when she told me she was going to Lakewood on Friday, I was all in. First of all, solo at those places, I suck. I take one look, get overwhelmed, cry on the inside, then leave. But, my mom is a pro. She’d guide me.

I need to hit up these places lately. My garage sale find series needs strange garage sale finds! And some of the Tip Top Garage Doors assistance. I knew Lakewood would have some awesome stuff. And it did.

We found some treasures…

Julie Franklin - If I didn’t work for a Catholic Preschool, I would TOTALLY be sporting the Ass Kickin’ southern rock tag. Loved Alf too!

Cherish Bryck - I love the garage sale find series – and I love “junkin'” too.

Meredith - ALF! This is great. Totally understand crying on the inside doing this kind of place solo. I so want to love it and know how to navigate but it’s instant panic. And my hands feel so dirty. But your pictures make me want to try.
