Thanks to my dear friend Jean, who sent me a clipping from our local paper, my dearest and I went to a grand opening of a local store Lucky Junk.
At 405 South Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights, Illinois, Lucky Junk is filled with amazing vintage treasures. The windows were decorated with hand cut snowflakes made from newsprint. So cool! We were warmly greeted and immediately impressed with the great dispays.
I never looked at the price of these cubbies...why break a girl's heart...
The checkout...I signed up for the mailing list. There will be classes and other events!
The great displays! I love crochet thread, and have filled a few cloches with my own abundant stash.
What to do with piano player rolls...how about amour? At one of the thrifts I visit they had dozens of these rolls. What a great original idea!
What did I buy? ...These cool ivory colored handled knives. ( ivory, Bakelite, plastic?...I don't know...) I've always wanted some to display with my vintage silverware. I met the owner of Lucky Junk, named Janet, when I asked for permission to photograph some of the vintage treasures for my blog. She was friendly and kind, and by the looks of her shop a kindred spirit. Everything in the shop I wanted or already had one of my own! This is an occasional shop so check her blog for the dates of her sales and events.
We did a little shopping on Saturday, until the weather took a bad turn. Funny but three inches of snow didn't seem to stop anyone on Sunday when the sun came out. I'll show you a couple of my thrifted treasures later this week.
Another trip up Route14 and another eagle sighting! This time I saw a photographer aiming his camera up into the trees. Then I saw the eagle, perched high in a sturdy branch. It is cool to see these magnificent birds up close!
January is flying by and Valentine's Day is on my mind. Working on a few projects I hope to share in the days ahead. Thanks for stopping by, enjoy this beautiful day.
